I was wondering if any of you found A&P and Microbiology to be more difficult than the nursing courses themselves?
I haven't because our nursing classes are built on the understanding of A&P & micro. In order to understand what your priorities are as a nurse (or even why the drugs your dispensing are working), you need to understand the pathophysiology of what's going on, in order to understand the pathophysiology, you need to have a good understanding of the A&P and microbiology of what should be happening.
So, my nursing classes require me to understand the A&P, micro, pathophysiology, pharmacology AND the nursing priorities and interventions.
A&P and micro, just required either A&P or micro.
