Egads!!!

  1. Found out yesterday that the Organic Chem class I was in (Chem 205) was not the correct one to take....too low a level for CRNA program. OK, that's cool....dropped the sucker like a hot tater. Not worth risking my GPA if it's not even something I need.

    Problem starts when I get a schedule for next semester....look up the right Organic Chem class (Chem 221), see that it has a prereq of Chem II (Chem 112), and see that Chem II has a prereq of Chem I (chem 111). Mmmmm, I've had Chem 105 for Healthcare Professionals.

    This totally sucks! I now have three semesters of chemistry to look forward to after I finish my BSN.

    Jump through the hoops, Anne....Jump through the hoops!
    Just focusing now on my Bachelor's, although it's nice to know what I have to look forward to after I graduate next summer......NOT!

    Yuck! Sorry to hear that! I'm in Chem I now. Bleck. I can't imagine having to take 3 chem classes (this is the only one I have to take for my ADN program).

    You totally have my sympathies!

    So sorry! Chem was not my favorite subject either. Just hope for an instructor that might find some way to make it interesting.

    anne, sometimes the individual instructor will approve a student to take the desired class without the pre-req required. since you already have had some form of chemistry, you may be able to just take your needed class, just a thought.

    I have been able to do this with Math classes scored very low on the placement test in Math and am pretty good at Algebra ( helping with 3 kids math) placed in PreAlgebra class and after speaking to teacher he let me take midterm and final and then advanced me to next class then he approved me skipping next level and am getting into STATS in fall. Go talk to a counciler and see what they can do Good Luck

    Anne, well that stinks. But YOU can do it. Keep thinking of that goal and you will be able to do it.
