Summer Is full with nursing 5 and Microbiology-4. But the other semesters I have 10 credit hours with nursing and was wondering how many you guys have taken at a time with nursing classes and not been too overwhelmed?
I still have:
1. Foreign language (2 classes)
3. Art appreciation
and #1,2 can be taken while i'm in the BSN program. I just don't want to overwhelm myself and get bad grades
Print and share with friends and family.

- Sep 4, '12 by KelRN215I always took between 14-16 credits per semester in college. I was in a traditional 4 year BSN program and 15 credits/semester was the average for full-time students.
- Sep 4, '12 by CerriwinTo be full time and receive financial aid, you had to be taking at least 12 credit hours at my university (4-year BSN). I usually took 16, but took 12 my first and last semesters as a break. Make sure you look at the policies of your program to ensure you're not putting any financial aid at risk taking less than full time hours.
