    End of life has several papers to write but is not a hard class. Patho is a very important class as far as nursing is concerned. If you know your patho you will do well in Nursing school. I am not sure that you will have enough time to study during May mester if you take both classes.But that is because I spent quite a bit of time studying for Patho I took it in the summer.

    Thanks! Patho is an Maymester/Summer I & II course but it's still 12 weeks, I think 4 weeks lesser than a regular semester. Well I guess I better gear up. I'm trying to just get over Finals and here I am already worried about next term. YEEK! How's it going for you?

    Thanks!

    I took it during the summer also, but I took it online. It wasn't bad at all. It would be if it were just 4 weeks though....I can't even imagine that!

    Can anyone tell me how 3rd semester, as far as the level of difficulty, compared to the other semesters? Which one is the hardest? It just seems so overwhelming to have 3 different lectures and 3 different clinicals in one semester.

    How did it work for everyone else? It also says on the website that we have clinical M-F for some of it...I don't know how that will work if we have lecture TW.

    Any information would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Depends upon the semester. Sorry. My first semester was Monday - Thursday, Second semester Monday - Thursday. Third semester Two days for lecture and two days for clinical.( my clinical was on the weekend). Fourth semester two days for lecture and two for clinical ( my clinical was on the weekend). First and second semester have labs, and you will need to go to lab and practice on your own time. This is for nursing classes only if you have any support classes left more time in lecture. Lots of time studying.

    Yeah we are taking those 3. I guess the schedule they have posted is wrong. It has to be. It just seems like 1st and 2nd semester (even with skills lab) were relatively easy as far as hours on campus and in clinical. Then, when I see the schedule for 3rd semester (with no skills lab) it looks like more...and the lecture and clincal hours are overlapping.

    How was yours scheduled? I know it may be different, but atleast I can get an idea.

    1st semester mine was 3 days a week.
    2nd semester it is split up. Lecture/Skills for the 1st half of the summer (2 days a week) and 2nd half of the summer is clinical 3 days a week.

    I am trying to figure out how I am going to be able to work full time and go to nursing. I am research all the options in the DFW area.

    The OB, peds, and psych classes are only 4-5 weeks each, so it shouldn't overlap for you, and it won't be bad at all. We are taking OB and peds now in 4th semester and we took psych in 2nd. Actually we finish OB this week and peds start next week, so I don't know how hard peds is. Psych wasn't too hard, just brush up on theraputic communication. OB is challenging in that it is different from anything else we've had, but it's not too bad. You'll be fine. Good luck, you're almost half way there!!!
