Can someone be manipulating my exam scores?

I have been accepted into a nursing program and I'm retaking two classes that I have failed.

In my college, you only have two chances for failing, so if I would fail once more (regardless of which class), I would be kicked out of the program. The specific problem that I'm having is that I have taken only test 2 [...]

Rookie Wit & Wisdom

I work at a hospital where nurses more frequently deal with residents than with attendings.

On one level, it’s a lot of fun, because there’s great camaraderie. They’re learning just like we (new nurses) are. We ask them questions, and they ask us questions. Sometimes we even step in and offer advice when they’re doing a procedure wrong, or point out when they’ve forgotten something, like [...]
