Hi all, this is my first post on AN. I was accepted into a generic bsn nursing program
that starts this fall. I'm super excited and scared. I did a lot of data dumping during my science prerequisites. I would study to get good grades on exams, and pass the classes with all A's. There are days when I feel that, even if I had retained some of the information, it would be a small percentage. I took those courses 3 years ago. As the old saying goes "If you don't use it, you lose it." I have completed all of my prereqs. My nursing advisor told me I would only be enrolled in nursing courses. I won't receive my schedule for another 3 weeks.
I want to be successful in my program. I'm taking pharmacology and patho over the summer at a cc. I'm weak in math so, I think it's best to be proactive.
My questions are:
I know I will need to review medical terminology. Should I review a & p, I and II?
Will any of my nursing courses have things on cell biology like mitosis, plasma membrane
system, dna, etc?
Should I review some chemistry even though I am taking pharm over the summer?
NOW, I totally understand I WILL NOT get through nursing school by data dumping. The nurses have given me some great advice on my unit about ns. However, I couldn't tell anyone that's how I got the science grades. Therefore, I could not ask this question at work. Soooooo, I'm asking here.
Thanks in advance to all that reply!
