    Hello!! I'm sure you do have many ??s. So did I when I started. I go to a university and am getting an ADN. I spent my 1st year taking prereqs. A&p 1&2, chem, math, eng, ethics. In aug. I start my nursing courses and clinicals. I know this is very demanding but I am glad I spent 1 yr. taking plain old classes. It got me back in the groove of school since I have been out for 11 yrs. ( I'm 29) Good luck and take your time. If you need any help with A&P email me I loved that course and got an A in it. Have fun. asphaltfly@aol.com.

    Hi biscuit,
    Along with what everyone else told you, my first class was medical terminology, this was a great help in Anatomy physiology(this has a language all its own. If you are having problems in A&P (it is a difficult class but not impossible.)make sure you get a tutor or start a study group. The internet has many A&P sites with practice exams ect... With the study group you get an added benefit of meeting new people. Good Luck and contratulations.J
