Recently I got a not-so-good grade on my chemistry exam. After getting my score back and seeing what it did to my grade, it made me really upset. I work very hard in school and try my hardest and to see I got a bad grade and it just brought me down. This made me start to think about my schooling and what I’m going to do. I am trying to become a nurse and in nursing school, it is crucial to get good grades.
What happened with my exam really made me think again if this is what’s right for me and if I’m capable of doing it. After getting my exam grade back, I had to look at what my options were for chemistry. Hopefully, with finals and such, I can finish the class off with a good grade. If not some of my other options are to come back home and go to community college. After getting my grade back, it really discouraged me if nursing is right for me or not. This is just my first semester and it’s been so hard for me. I feel like I might not be adjusting well and the school work, like chemistry, is so hard it makes me think if I’m cut out for nursing.
For the longest time, I have wanted to be a nurse. When I got that bad grade back it just made me think I wasn’t good enough. That I can’t do this and I can’t be a nurse. Then it made me think and one bad grade shouldn’t define my whole college experience. Just because I’m not getting the perfect grades doesn’t mean I’m not meant to be a nurse. I want to be a nurse so bad and just want to be able to take care of people so much that I will do anything, and work so hard to ensure I become one. Being a nurse is something you really want to do, not just for the money, but because you actually want to help people and make a difference. If you have that passion for it you will work hard enough to make it come true. That’s why I’m not letting one bad grade affect my whole time here at college.
