Question...ref nursing school

  1. Ok, I am sure someone, somewhere has asked this question. Tell me if there is a online school or very abbreviated session of classes to obtain a LPN or a good entry point to nursing?

    I have made a "D" in my A&P I class last fall and questioned whether or not nursing is for me (I am a male).

    Still interested.

    I would say that if you are still interested, you may want to try taking A&P I again. It's a good start to understanding the body and it's processes.

    Above poster offerred good suggestion. You need a good solid understanding of A&P in order to go further into nursing. Good luck.

    My advice would be to take the class again. Try a different instructor, time of day or if allowed a whole new school. It is so important to have a strong foundation before beginning nursing classes. Good luck and keep tryin'!

    I would take the class again also. Even LPN courses require A&P (at least ours does), and to understand the human body, it is a pretty important class. If you are just looking for a "foot in the door" kind of thing, you could take a CNA course through the Red Cross. They offer them very frequently, and the cost is very minimal - ours is only $25.

    Good luck!

    My advice is to take A&P over, get tutoring help if you need it, work in a study group with some other students, whatever it takes. You need the A&P to understand many things you will do in your nursing studies and career. I met several people who wanted to be nurses and took A&P over, it's a tough class and sometimes it takes a little longer for some people. Be persistent, it will pay off. Sometimes if it's something you really want(like being a nurse)it takes a little time and extra effort. Only you will know if it is worth the extra effort it takes to get where you want to be.

    Like everybody else said, retake A&P. I took A&P when I was 18 and wild as the day is long. Didn't study like I should or anything....and failed.

    9 years later, I am back in school and just passed A&P with a big, fat "A." I'm in part II now and busting my tail to make another A.

    Can I just say, the instructor makes a difference !!!!!!!!!!!
    Also, your lab grades can save you. They are what pushed me up to an A.

    Good luck. If I can do it, I know you can. Esp if it is what you want.
