    f_nurse2b16- The $4799 is just for the first semester. I had already taken Pathophysiology or the tuition would have been $800 more. I plan on tuition being $2800 per regular semester and about $1400 per summer session.

    I do have 1 BIG suggestion, tryo to get admitted in the Fall. USF does have a class that begins in the summer. It is my understanding that they finish 1 semester quicker than we do but it comes at a big price. They take 17 credit hours that first summer semester. That is alot to take in 9 weeks on top of clinicals and lab. I am not saying that it can't be done but it is something you would need to be prepared for. I took Patho in the summer and it was ridiculous. We did 8 chapters in the first 2 classes and had our first exam the third day of class. The Nursing students had multiple exams that day. I have alot of respect for the students that were able to take all of those classes in the summer and still do well.

    PlamHarborMom- Oh, I'm not at USF yet. I'm still in the Pre-reqs stage at my university. Pathophysiology will be the only class that I am taking during the summer since school will be out during that time. I can just go to my local community college and do it. And yeah, I will definately be applying to the Fall term at USF.
