how about this???

  1. Okay, for all of you are in the pre req classes. I was wondering about this courseload. I want to maintain a good gpa.

    A&P I
    Philosophy
    Nutriton

    Summer
    A&P II
    Ethics?

    Do you think my summer load will be too much? I don't know too much about Phil or Ethics. I was trying to get a couple of more things out of the way. Is it poss to take anything with A&P?

    Thanks guys,
    Jenny

    If you need only one or the other, I would go for your spring classes as you have them and then just do the A&P 2. Usually during the summer it is all accelerated and besides the lecture for A&P you'll have lab hours.

    Are you going for an ADN or a BSN?

    I, too, am taking A&P 1 and nutrition during the spring semester...we'll have to keep in touch!

    I am taking a&P I and microbiology in the spring and A&PII in the summer. I asked a similar question about a week ago, and many people informed me that this is very doable. I was told that one benefit of taking these classes in the spring/summer is that there isn't enough time to forget the information.

    Yes,
    I have to take both Phil and Ethics. Actually, I have to take Ethics and then applied Ethics and morals. Bleck. Anyway. I am enrolling in a BSN program. I decided on this route vs. the ADN because it only added an additional year to my grad date. I think it will work out better for me in the long run as I will not have to try to go back to school while working unless I decide to pursue my Masters.

    Do you have to take Pathophysiology? If so, it may be wise to not take A & P II right away. That relates more to Patho, and our A & P II instructor recommended this. I did the same as you and have Patho this semester, so I'll let you know how much I've forgotten in a year and a half.

    Kristy,
    Yep, actually in my program they put patho in with pharm and dimensions of nursing 2. Also included in that semester is theology, and a lit or elec. I am hoping to have the Theology, and Lit already completed.

    Jenny,

    You will do well, during the summer I took, A&PI, microbiology, anthropology and chemistry and I did well. I got A's and B's. For the fall, I took the following;

    American History I &2
    A&PII
    Life cycle
    Nutrition
    Statistics.

    19 credits in all and I did well. I came out with a 3.3 GPA. You can do it girl! go for it.

    Ann, I forgot to ask,
    Did you like Statistics? Was it terribly hard?

    Jenny,

    Statics is fairly easy, you just have to know the concepts. I have two kids here, one is three and the other nine. I have an A in that class. I did not like it at first but by practicing, I realized that it is not bad after all.

    Good luck!

    Wow Ann,
    Now I am really impressed. I have 3 children. (9, 6 and 3) I would love to pm with you or email to compare study habits. I would love to know how you organize your time. This web site has been so helpful in giving me good tips for school.

    pm or email me if you want.

    Thanks,
    Jenny

    Jenny,

    I think that courseload is fine. Your GPA won't suffer at all.
    Good luck!
