Despite having a B on all of my written tests and clinical (hospital) paperwork, I was kicked out of nursing school yesterday (on my and DH's anniversary) because I messed up on my skills test twice. I was just 14 months away from becoming a RN and yesterday my dream was flushed down the toilet. We only get 2 tries to show a professor we have mastered a skill. If we don't master it in those two tries we are dismissed from the program, even if we have great grades on everything else. My professor said I was an excellent student but rules are rules. I am at work but I can't stop crying. I am ashamed and hurt and disappointed and I really just want to be home under the covers. I will never get over this. I am so depressed and have no interest in ever do anything again.
