I don't know what to do........thoughts?

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I am working on completing the pre requisites to get into nursing school and am down to my last 4 classes. I had registered for 2 of those classes a few weeks ago and did some major schedule tweaking with my work schedule in order to have THE BEST professor on campus for one of the classes. I heard mention the other day that they had opened up some other lab sections and so I logged on today to see if there was anything that worked better for my schedule. Not only are all the lab sections closed BUT they have switched the teacher for my class!!!!! I now have THE ONE teacher on campus that I really don't want. So, my question is do I keep a schedule that is less than ideal and stay with a teacher I don't want OR do I drop the class for this upcoming semester and potentially wait until next fall to do the class? I don't have to take the lab with the lecture but I do have to complete the lecture first. I think I'm going to talk to my professor (I have her right now) and see if this is some weird joke. the irony is that if I had kept the lab I originally registered for that I would have had the professor I wanted bc they switched that teacher to mine. ugh. I'm just so frustrated bc I signed up for this particular lab section bc of the professor. It would also decrease the stress to take the lecture separately from the lab.

Today has been a pretty craptastic day. I still have my streak of abstinence from purging going though I know I've eaten far too little today. My anxiety has been super high and I've felt like I have a bowling ball in my stomach most of the day.

Feeling kind of abandoned by my recovery coach/sponsor. Part of me knows that she can't be there for me 24/7 bc she is human AND a really busy human at that but at the same time I just really need some encouragement right now. I really want to give up and say to hell with this whole recovery nonsense. trying to stay strong and put my feelings into words to try and take the power away from them.

just gotta figure this class nonsense out. I also need to get cracking on taking the TEAS exam (part of the requirement for application to nursing school) to get the ball moving even more.

    I agree with the other comments. Go to the prof or department head and ask to be in the class you want. There is no harm in asking. Good luck! Hang in there.

    It is possible, that you could get the schedule changed to get into the class with the teacher you want. I had a certain professor in my area of study that I just loved. Because of the way scheduling was done (priority given to upper classes) often his classes were full before the registration date for me. I would often need to go see him and the chair of the department to ask for an "over-ride". It was granted every time I asked. Not sure if it's an option for you, but wanted you to know the possibility is there. Good luck and best wishes!

    Is there a personal reason why you don't want the one teacher? Or is that person just not a great teacher? Maybe go to the teacher you really want and explain the situation. Sometimes they can add a student even if the class is full (not always but it's worth asking). If you just really cannot tolerate that one teacher and there's no way around it, then you have to decide if it is detrimental to your academic work and your recovery to be in that class or if waiting would be better for you.

    It sounds like you have some major stress issues right now. I hope you find away to relieve that stress! A nursing program is not for the weak-hearted!

    Good luck emoticon
