    Acckkkkk, didn't mean to scare you as you will have this same class in the third block :stone The point of the whole class was to recognize mistakes the MDs make and to question their errors. Basically, you had to think and act like a doctor in the class - order the right labs, know whether they need a CT scan, or a MRI, or a spiral CT, etc, etc. Nobody flunked the class, but the tests were killers!

    Research - blech! Not necessarily that HARD, I just hate it!

    Community is being a big PITA to our class at the moment!

    Although there were classes that I hated, I wouldn't say they were "hard." I actually thought pharm was easy. I think either patho or obstentrics would win for being the hardest. We had really tough teachers for those. They wanted to know every little detail, every little gene in patho that caused every disease and all the little nasties in OB that caused all the problems, what to do for them, what the major causes of bleeding were, death, what ethinicities were at the highest risk, everything. We went through every chapter and every detail of the book in the semester

    Its not the nursing classes that are difficult, its the arts and sciences that you take like microbiology, anatomy and physiology that are a little more challenging. Its all a mind set though, be positive and you can conquer any class that they throw at you. :chuckle

    Out of the prereqs - Definitely A&P! Statistics was more easy and I'm AWFUL at math!

    So far in the nursing program - Patho [it was sooo much information crammed in a short period of time] and Pharm.

    So far...It's a toss up between pharmacology and organic chemistry. I am only half done with Pharm, but it is tough! For our next exam (next Wed) we have to know 65 drugs! Crazy! Many of them are similiar, but there are still like 7 classes of drugs! It's no fun at all! Organic Chemistry wasn't much fun either, at least that's over!

    Easiest - Psych
    Most workload - Med Surg

    Have to say I loved A&P. Had great teachers, and was told exactly what we needed to know for the quizzes/tests. Was extremely concrete. Nursing classes seem a lot harder to me due to ambiguity of many of the questions (don't pick the answer that's right, pick the one that's most right), where some of these are very arguable.

    Right now I'd have to say that OB/Peds class is the hardest. 1/2-2/3 of the people fail every quiz.
