I was failing, I thought I could make it through. I failed eventually. Had a 73%. Passing mark.is 75%. I wished I had just dropped the class like my friends did.

Peds has totally shut me down. Doesn’t help that my teacher speaks a mile a second & does not give reviews at all. It is my lowest grade I’ve ever gotten in nursing school. I can’t deal. I’m taking OB and psych simultaneously... I don’t have time to shut down rn 😩

I failed my first Med-Surg II exam and my second Maternal Newborn exam. :(

I got a 61 on my OB exam today. I am in tears. I don’t want to drop the class and want to graduate on time. I know it’s my fault though because I crammed too much in such a few days. 😢

I got a 69 the lowest grade I every got I have been studying over 10 days it’s in pharmacology. But I know the information well but how the questions were were asked were so weird.

Thank you for this video. I''m in my second semester of an RN program and I failed the first exam, but not by much, changed my study and test taking methods and I did even worse on the second! Needless to say I broke down. I'm meeting with my instructor soon. I'm still salvageable because of my high quiz grades. I really think my whole approach needs to be revised. Your videos have been helping a lot!

Any update to share? I hope you managed to turn things around!

I just went through my Med-Surg HESI and I failed. I have a Mother-Baby HESI on Wednesday. I studied and prepared so hard. I went through all your videos to help with studying. I even fo practice questions. I don't know where I am going wrong. I feel discouraged and rethinking my decision to be a nurse. :-(

Hi! I love your videos. I noticed there aren't any Gastrointestinal disorder videos? That's what part I'm on in school now.
RegisteredNurseRN (2 years ago)
Hello Kala :) Thank you so much for watching my videos....I appreciate it very much! I will definitely be covering GI in the near future. Right now, I'm covering cardiovascular and then respiratory (due to high viewer requests). Then I will do the GI system after that. Thank you for the suggestion and for subscribing to my channel ;-)

Thanks for sharing these tips!

+Nursing Bubbles You're very welcome! Thanks for your comment :)

Im trying to get myself some mary ann hogan books, but the newer editions are pricer, you think its okay if I just get the old editions?
RegisteredNurseRN (2 years ago)
+Nicole Ferrel I know what you mean...every time a new edition comes out they are way more expensive. For the Mary Ann Hogan books, I think it would be okay to buy the other edition that came out right before the new one. However, when prepping for the HESI, NCLEX, or ATIs exams I would always go with the latest...just because they change their content focuses on the exams. I hope that helps :)
Tanya Little (2 years ago)
Thank you for your advice, I just performed poorly on one of my exams.
RegisteredNurseRN (2 years ago)
+Tanya Little You're very welcome, Tanya! Hang in there...it happens to us all. Keep your eye on the prize and know it will soon be over and behind you. I wish you the absolute best :)

Wooow, you're usually not allowed to retake a test!?! In northern europe you can fail I think three times after which you have to take the course again next year. But you will NOT be kicked out of school (unless you are deemed absolutely unsuitable, mentally unstable, drug use etc.). Interesting.
RegisteredNurseRN (2 years ago)
+Hanna MO Thanks for sharing your experience in Northern Europe. Typically, in nursing school in the US a lecture exam is administered once and what you score you are stuck with it. Unless, the professor agrees to a repeat examination. You are only kicked out of nursing school if you fail the whole class (meaning you failed multiple exams). I always enjoy reading how things on conducted aboard. Thank again for sharing :)

+IheartLOST06 You're very welcome! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I wish you the absolute best in nursing school :)
oluku igho (2 years ago)
great advise your words are encouraging just got into my first semester in nursing and my midterm is close finding it hard to understand pathophysiology are they any web link i can get study guide or video lessons to help me
oluku igho (2 years ago)
thanks alot can i mail you when i have some other questions is they any site were i can get free book for download
RegisteredNurseRN (2 years ago)
+oluku igho Thank you so much, Oluku! I appreciate your comment very much! Patho is an intense class and I can feel your pain with it. I highly recommend the study guide by Maryann Hogan for Patho: http://www.amazon.com/Pearson-Reviews-Rationales-Pathophysiology-Nursing/dp/0133249778/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1458264803&sr=8-1&keywords=pathophysiology+maryann+hogan You can find it on amazon.com and it helps break down the material you need to know for tests...it should help you for your midterm. I also suggest searching on YouTube for concepts you are covering class. Many people on here have uploaded really good information videos that helps breakdown the content. Hang in there...I promise not all nursing classes are hard like Patho :) I hope that helps!

Excellent advise. I just recently failed my first exam. I will dedicate more time to studying for an exam and use a study guide from here on out and see where that takes me.
Carlos Mendoza (2 years ago)
+RegisteredNurseRN Thanks for the tips!
RegisteredNurseRN (2 years ago)
+Carlos Mendoza Thank you very much for your comment, Carlos! Yes, most definitely get a study guide and that should help. Study guides were my best friend during nursing school. Hang in there and I hope you do better on the next exam. Best wishes :)
