what the heck do I do now?

Hey, all....just had to post a happy thread today.... I just took my LAST EVER nursing final! Got a 83, so I got a B in the class overall.....and I just realized that I've done nursing almost everyday of my life for the last 2 years.....So, what the heck am I supposed to do now? LOL
It is a sad day too though....one of my good friends missed passing by about 4 points.....1 quiz that she missed near the end for a (not so smart) reason.....I hope that they find points missed during her final review...but I'm not holding out hope. The way things are going, I may be the only male graduating this year.....How weird does that make me look?
On to the NCLEX!!!!

It means that you will be the hottest guy in your graduating class. :o)
Congrats again....sounds like you are on a roll. Last final? I SO envy you.
I know all too well what it feels like to lose a classmate. Our instructors told us when we started the program to "look around because more than half this class will likely not make it to the end" and they were right.
I lost my best nursing bud and lab partner in second semester. (She refused to write study cards, just read the power points over and over......worked for her in the past.)
The next semster we lost a whole group of people, none that I was close to but still.
And even this semester I lost another one to OB/PEDS by 1/2 point. 74.5%..no rounding up allowed...so she got a 74%..failing by our schools standards...an "F".
I'd say we probably are down to about half of what we started with.
I don't know about your program but in mine you can fail ONE class, ONE time and be allowed to re-apply. If you fail more than one class you can't ever re-apply.
Anyway, I talk too much. Congrats again.

NCLEX . . . smack it down, brutha!

Ohhh, that sucks to fail at the end. They are heartless if they'd flunk her for missing a quiz.
