    Well I can't think of a particular class... But skills check offs are always tough on me... But only because I USED to let me nerves get the best of me, to the point of forgetting everything I knew.. But after working this summer as a PCA, I am not really worried about this next semester.... Fun rotations.. maternity, surgery... FUN FUN

I decided to do it to lighten my load this fall and it turned out to be a good thing, I finished with a 96%. I am happy to have behind me what I have been told is one of the hardest classes in the program.
    I've been debating that one myself. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, after I do Microbiology in 7 weeks and see how bad that hurts.

    maternity nursing, hands down here. of course that could have to do with my dislike of the subject matter. i came out with a b though. there were many class member that scraped through on the class though.
    a "b", way to go!

    Vitamins, Vitamins, Vitamins! Fats, carbs, proteins! All of it!! LOL!
    It was the least interesting of all my classes. Med-surg, I thought was the most interesting.
    Just can't make myself care about poly, mono, and unsaturated fats!

    OH, I know exactly what you mean.. we were just tested on that today, ick.. what I like is how the instructor correlates the patient with the diet/disease process, all that info is interesting.. yah, I agree with you on the mono, poly, etc...:chuckle

    Micro---like studying a foreign language

    Patho---I got an A+ in A & P I and an A in II, but I struggled to get a B in Patho. Could be because I had a teacher from h*ll (check out post from "atheist instructors")

    I'm a visual learner, I hate theory ect. Give me anything fact based and I'm good. eg pull this and that goes up, easy enough! I can see it I can do it. When it comes to theory and strategy ie business (insert: nails on chalkboard sound)
