Is the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee the ONLY school that requires their pre-nursing students to take physics???? (called "physics for health professions" a non-trig physics... watered down as some call it, but still difficult as heck!)
This is ridiculous! I've searched other schools in Milwaukee and in Chicago, but I have yet to find another one.
This is definitely a weed out class..... some of the people accepted into the nursing program but are later denied acceptance is because of this stupid class! (We're notified of our acceptance in March while the stupid physics course started in January).
I have a very strong gpa, even for the accelerated program, but I have a feeling that this course is going to be my downfall. I got an "F" on the first exam.... I totally don't see why this would be a requirement for nursing
Do you guys think I should drop out of the course now and try to apply to other programs (after this semester I will have all of the pre-reqs done)? This is just ludacris! This is the cheapest program in town and my money (especially fed financial aid) is very tight.... If I apply to any other school in town (which would be private) I'm going to have to take out some alternative loans, AND it will take longer to get the BSN (my school's accelerated is 16 months which is 4 semesters including the summer, another good- though private- school is Alverno.... it will still take me 4 semesters for the BSN but it will be 2 years because there are no nursing classes for the summer....)
I really don't know what I should do right now. All suggestions are welcome.
