I am attending school in the evening, work full time, and have a 2 year old. Whew! My life is busy! I am trying to get my prereq's done in order to apply to the August 2004 nursing class and have 4 science classes that I still need to take - Chem, A&PI & II, and Microbiology.
With permission from the Science dept, I can take Chem and A&PI at the same time (chem is a prereq for a&pI while a&PI is a prereq for Micro) but that would mean I would be in class four nights a week - Mon through Thurs - for lecture and lab. I would take these 2 in the Fall and then go on to take A&PII and Micro together - again 4 days a week.
I know these science classes are alot of memorization, which I think I can retain and do while raising a family and working full time but I guess I just needed to hear from some others that have done it to find out how tough it is and did you also need permission from your school if one was a prereq for another?
I really want to get into the nursing program next year and not have to put it off another year (new classes only start once a year in August). I guess I could look into another program but this one has an evening/weekend program which is really what I need.
If there are any Philly area nursing students out there, do you know of any part time evening/weekend nursing programs
other than Abington?
Thanks guys for your help!
