    Not there yet, but I am thinking dose calculations just cause I dislike math.

    A&P! Just not enough time to cover everything! However, we had some students who flunked our A&P, then went elsewhere (school to remain nameless! ) and got A's. I got, on average between the two A&P semesters, 88. So I'm still trying to figure out what that would be on the other school's grading system, somewhere between 108 and 118 I think!

    Yeah, Pharm was hard cause of all the math involved (I never took algebra in high school so i was REALLY lost!). But the one I really hated was Nurse Managment. I thought that would be EASY, but was I wrong!!

    Lol I agree with all of these! A&P was hard, pharm was just plain hard, but my worst class was chemistry!

    Lucky nursing students at my school now, have a choice of chem or biology..I got stuck taking a year of chem

    Good luck to all of you Dont let what people say was a hard class get you down!

    I think A&P was the hardest by far.. I liked pharmocology although my school called it something different..

    Nursing Research is it. I can't stand that class. I just can't seem to get it. Hopefully I get a passing grade, right now I am on the edge.

    Definitely Pharm!!!! I can usually study for a test the day before and do fine. Not with Pharm - I spend 5-6 days trying to learn all the meds, side effects, and nursing processes and than pray I do okay on the test.

    I would have to say assessment during the RN portion of school. Humongous reading assignments and class consisted of a student portraying someone with a medical diagnosis, (sort of like the Seinfeld episode in which Kramer portrays someone with syphylis, LOL), you have to assess in front of the whole class, give a medical diagnosis, medical tests to run to confirm dx, then write a huge paper about it every week. This was only a one credit class that should of at least of been a 3 credit class according to the time spent in class.........not to mention the homework that required a Merck Manual to do! :angryfire
