The nursing program that I am applying to requires only A+PI as a pre-req. The sample schedules they have include Microbiology and Psychology classes alongside full nursing course loads each semester. Ideally I would like to knock out all of these non-nursing courses first but without them the nursing courses all fall shy (by like 1 credit hour) of making me a "full time" student in the eyes of financial aid, thus I have to take something
My questions is this: Is it going to kill me to take a first semester nursing course load along side Microbiology? The only course that would fit with the nursing schedule is a Friday only class and it looks to be like 6 hours long or close to it. My other option is to take it during the summer and tack on two "easy A" online courses to the semester or something to keep my credit hours up.
Anyone have this issue with credit hours / financial aid? What to dooo?
