    I have been out for a little while. I was trying to go for the full credits (12) for financial aid but it is okay if I can't because I do want to learn the best and remember it -LOL!! All these classes are 3 credits a piece except medical terminology is 2. Thanks for your suggestion. I just want to do it the best way so I can learn, remember it, and make good grades instead of just pass and get them out of the way.
    You are taking the correct approach: to learn .

    In spite of working in the medical arena for years, I found the med. term class invaluable for later classwork (chem, biochem, anat., phys, micro, etc.)-- a definite advantage over those that did not have it ( non-med or non-nursing majors.) Are there other non-nursing classes you need that you can take this semester??

    If it were me, I'd take Medical Terminology, A&P 1, and Nutritions in the first semester; and then I'd take Pharmacology, A&P 2, and Psych in the second semester.
    A&P 1&2 will most likely be your hardest classes, so you want to make sure that you don't take too many difficult classes together at the same time. Otherwise you will burn yourself out. As for some of the classes being online, they will be just as difficult whether they're online or not. They are certainly more convenient, but you have to really discipline yourself to get your butt infront of the computer to learn. Some people are really good at that, and others find all kinds of excuses to put it off. If you really want to take 12 credits, then I'd add Psych in the first semester. I think that's doable.

    Interesting, the place where I went to school did not allow A&P 2 till you completed A&P 1.

    I think that is what I have decided to take. The ones that are not online , I have to drive at least an hour to take. Thanks for your advice.
