I think everyone needs to calm down. To the person that said nursing is considered an easy major, I'd hate to tell you this but they are right. On the outside looking in a lot of people consider nursing school an easy major. See it's easy for us to say it's not easy but for people who haven't gone through it and are just looking at the program from the outside, they consider it easy. I've heard plenty of pre-med and pre-pharm majors saying "Oh you went for the easy major".
Also, every school varies in pre-reqs. Some schools have classes set aside just for certain professions. And even though the class has the same title doesn't mean it covers the same material. We also have a pharmacy school at our university and we have different chemistry classes. We have Orgo and Biochem but it's different from the kind of Organic chemistry they take.
So I just wanted to add that little tidbit. I don't think the person was trying to say they thought it was easy, just that there are A LOT of ignorant med students, physical therapy students and pharmacy students who think nursing is a cake walk. The difficulty of school depends on a person so you CANNOT say it is not easy. What you can say is "to me it was not easy" There are people that have said nursing school was easy. There are people on this very board that have said that. I can say I thought A&P was an easy class, more than half of pre-nursing students would not agree with me. You can't attack people's opinions, but that poster already stated it wasn't their opinion, it's the vibe they got from people that work at medical schools and I get that same vibe.
