Hey guys! I'm new to this website and this is my first post. I'm just wanting to get your opinion on the matter.
Basically, when I transferred to my current school, I was pretty much screwed up by the advisor at that time. I have just found out that I was accepted into the nursing program that begins next fall, but I still need to finish 4 classes in the spring semester. Those 4 classes are: pathophysiology, microbiology with lab, anatomy with lab, and physiology with lab. I've been told by advisors and peers that this seems really difficult and unattainable.
Is it really though? It is only 4 classes. Isn't nursing school
going to be just as difficult if not more? I won't be working at all during the semester and will be focusing solely on school. The anatomy and the physiology classes are taught by the same professor. The microbiology class is taught by the same professor I had general biology for.
Given this information, do you think it's possible to do well in these 4 classes?
I look foward to your feedback!

I wouldn't do it. I also think anatomy and physiology should be a pre-req for pathophysiology. If you don't have a grasp on normal physiology, it will be that much harder to understand the abnormal (which is what pathophysiology is).
I'm really surprised you got accepted into the program without those 3 core classes- anatomy, physiology, and microbiology.
Edit: This is also an important lesson do keep up on stuff yourself and not expect somebody else to do it for you- you have a much higher investment then they do. I always figured out my plan for classes and double checked (used my advisor as a second set of eyes) with my advisor.
