- Dec 27, '12 by BouncyballI'm in my last semester of nursing school, but by far the hardest class I have ever taken was chemistry. I honestly have no idea how I passed that class. By my calculations, I should have failed with a D. The teacher let me pass by giving me a C. Only 8 out of 40 people passed that class. Only one person got a B, no one got an A. I spent hundreds on a chemistry tutor that semester. I'm so glad that nightmare is over!
- Dec 27, '12 by Bloomgirl118I struggled with Pharmacology. Our instructor did not specialize in it and she didn't write the tests so we never knew if what she lectured on would also be on the tests. Also, it was a ton of memorizing and that was just hard with a full class load. Best of luck in all your classes!

Nursing: Foundational Skills
I thought med-surg 1 was a breeze compared to foundational skills! But that's probably because it was totally new stuff we were learning. Next semester, I have med-surg 2. Hopefully it's not too terrible. (:
- Dec 27, '12 by bellafsu89Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry 1 & 2. I took too many heavy science classes in one semester (Organic 2, Physics 2, Biochem and Metabolism all in one semester.) Made it through but it was rough! I'm hoping that my nursing program, which starts in January, isn't going to be as crazy as that was!
- Dec 27, '12 by GrnTeaI took a cardiovascular physics/physiology course in grad school that damn near killed me, very heavily physics and calculus, never my strong suits. It didn't help that my 8-month-old baby decided to stop sleeping through the night and got me up every hour all night long all semester. By the time I figured out that she was old enough not to nurse all the time and could cry it off (she learned to sleep all night again in THREE NIGHTS....oh god, wish I'd figured that out sooner) I had a 1.7 average and could barely see straight. They didn't let us carry any course grade of <2.0, so they gave me a 0.0 in it. I had been so sleep-deprived I didn't have the alertness to drop it in time, so I ate the 0.0 in my cumulative average. If it weren't for that course I'd have made the graduate school national honor society. I'd have made it even with a 1.7, but not a 0.0. Damn.
Now HER kid keeps her up all night, and she's a professor. Of physics. Hah, the irony of it all! Payback! I told her to let him cry, he's over a year old, but no, she doesn't want to impose a rigid schedule on him. ... OK, then.
- Dec 27, '12 by MichaelaR27Chemistry was my most difficult prereq. Pulled an A off at the last second, but BARELY.
I'd have to say the worst nursing class so far has been Health Assessment. My teacher expected us to know every detail of every assessment, which I appreciate, but definitely worked to learn!
