What is the hardest class you've taken so far??

  1. Me, I've only taken 2 classes so far so I can't say much. I want to know what all of you think the worst class is. I've heard alot of nursing students say anatomy and physiology and others say the fundamentals of nursing. What's your pick??

    I would have to say that both of my Chem classes and my Intermediate Algebra class were by far the hardest so far. I start Nursing classes Aug. 25!!!

    Just finished my prerequisites, so I don't know regarding Nursing classes. For me, it was Anatomy and Physiology1. This is because of the nature of the material. It is more memorization than understanding. It is laying the foundation for everything else. I made the mistake of trying to fit the pieces together instead of just learning in material. My one suggestion on this class is to make flash cards for yourself and to use the online tests from the book.

    Philosophy. It was hard to stay awake.

    A&P and Fundamentals weren't hard, just a lot of work.

    for me personally, i think that pharmacology has been my toughest class so far (1 year of nursing courses completed, one to go). first of all it was at 0800 on monday morning, on top of that, nothing but drug names, method of action, dosage, side effects, contraindications, etc. i am the type that i could be lectured to all day and it does not really stick, but when i actually get my hands on the drugs in the clinical setting and look them up and do pt teaching regarding them then i remember the stuff.

    Microbiology...

    13 video's of lecturing of a boring prof. standing in front of a camera and occassionally drawing on a black board through my distance education course.

    Glad when that was finished...

    Definatly Chemistry. I took it this summer (8 weeks) and there was just SO much to learn and understand I thought. Some days I wanted to pull my hair out trying to learn all that nomenclature!!

    I did manage to get an A though!!! I think though that if I would have taken it during a regular 16 week semester it would not have been so bad. Summer classes are just hard so dont let me scare you.

    I took Anatomy in the spring and I did not think it was hard at all, I loved it!

    Have't taken any nursing classes yet ( just started fundamentals) but pre-req wise, hands down Philosophy. BORING, I wanted to pull my hair out. Give me the challenge of a&p or chem a thousand times over. At least there you have to stay awake or you fail.
    Nutrition was brutal for me too. I think that was because of the teacher though, the subject was cool.
