An educational experience I had to overcome was going into my final in first semester failing by 0.5. It was so discouraging and scary but I knew that failing first semester nursing school was not an option. Knowing that I had one option and that was to pass only placed a great amount of fear in me. I had to reevaluate what it was I was doing. I had to change my lifestyle and dedicate my life to Nursing School, working part time had to change to 1 day a week, listening and asking questions in lecture, study pattern and the time I committed to studying had to change.
