I am starting my second degree BSN program this fall. I have had all of the prereqs, A&P,micro, etc.
I was wondering how much hard science is actually in nursing school
. Of course I know that Pharm and Physio classes will be science based, but what about the theory classes for clinicals, what are they all about?

After reading some of the responses, I should clarify what I meant by hard science. I wasn't referring to difficulty of the classes.
The term is often used colloquially to refer to a science class that is purely science based.... For example, A&P and Chem were hard science classes. On the other hand, Nutrition was more like a social science class for me. There was some science thrown in, but it was more like a social science class, like psych.
In this post I was referring to the former... I wanted to know how many classes besides pathophys and pharm will be staight out science.
I am probably most interested in hearing from BSN grads just because I think the structure of the ADN programs is a little different. Most of the programs in my area do not teach pathophys. My assumption is that it is integrated throughout the program.
