I am starting the nursing program in August. The only class I have left that to take that is not a nursing program core class is A&P II. So right now I have the option of either taking it in a 5 week summer session class or taking it along with my other classes in the spring. (My school does not offer it in the Fall).
Here are some deciding factors:
1) If I take it in the summer I have to pay for it. I don't really have the money right now but I have applied for a summer scholarship which will pay for half and that would make it a little more "doable" if I get it.
If I take it in the Spring Fin Aid should pay for it.
2) If I take it in the summer it is done and then I can concentrate strictly on the nursing classes. (Since all of my prereqs are done I'm only looking at about 7 credit hours in the spring anyway so it wouldn't be that bad to add AP)
3) From what I was told from the prof. of the class, you need to eat, sleep and LIVE a&p for the 5 weeks.
I am exhausted right now from doing 16 credit hours a semester and mainting a 4.0. I really feel like I need the break before I start the program. Plus I just started a new job that I would like to hoard away some money over the summer to help offset my expenses if I can't do it while going to NS.
I know that you can't tell me what to do, but opinions would be helpful! Thanks so much!
