Ok I have something to share with you all.  This semester has been a long, stressful, busy one.  Lots of ups and downs.  You have all been there along the way.  I want to say thank you for that.

The bad news is this, I will not be going forth in this program next semester.  I failed the med/surg class (I know you are thinking WTF?!?!?! you are a med/surg nurse! and let me tell you I am thinking the same thing) and will not be graduating in May.

This is not the end of the road, only a minor setback. I have a couple of choices.  I could reenter the same program next fall and finish out here. Or I can try to get into a couple of other programs that are in the area.  I think I am going to choose the latter.  I am tired of all the games and hoops I have to jump through just to get this far.  (Some of which I have blogged about but some I have not.)  This next semester I will take to regroup and get my head on straight and then I will try again. I promise.

Till then I should have plenty of stories to share with you from working!!

If any of my (former) fellow students are reading this, please know that I am saddened that I will not be graduating with you. I wish you all the best of luck not only next semester but in your career.  You will all do fine, just keep on keeping on!!!!!


  1. While I am sorry to hear about this...I know that you will NOT give up and that makes me happy. I know everytime yet another trial comes upon my family I am left to wonder why He trusts me so much. I've always been told that He will never give you more than you can bear...but sometimes I think He has mixed me up with someone else a bit stronger ye know? Regardless, I know you are a strong woman and you will make it through this, and come out shining!! Love ya Karen!!!

  2. I am so sorry things didn't work out this semester. BUT...think of it as a little blip in the road. Stay determined and you'll get there.

  3. stay where you are at, You will make it and not regret it. Becoming an RN will be one of your greatest accomplishments, the rest will follow.

  4. sorry about your minor setback...just remember everything can be a mountain or a little bump, depending on your approach. glad to hear your positivity in your post...chin up...great honest post.
