    Mental health... the exams. so much gray area. I partly blame my teacher. I liked the clinical portion and I rocked out the ATI tests, but 97% of our final grade came from the exams. Only C I made in nursing school.

    OB!!!!! My teacher made it way worse than it had to be!!! I heard a lot of people say OB was their easiest but like I said my teacher just took it way over the top. Thank goodness i passed it with a B at the very end and now I will be graduating this December. Psych was blah too only because it just didn't click for me

    Oncology...I HATED IT!!! Also didn't like Renal. I did love Cardio, endocrine and nervous. Psych was cool too.

    OB/peds. A whole nother new language. That I really had little to no interest in and that made it even harder. I do love working with kids in the ER tho'.

    Pharmacology. I thought I'd do so great at it, bcs i already had a bachelors with a minor in chemistry and I work as an editor in the pharmaceutical industry! But they gave it to my class as a summer course. Four weeks to cover all of pharm! It was awful and I basically had to teach it to myself every night. Ruined my GPA too by being my only C+.

    I actually don't start until August but I predict the grading scale is going to be the hardest part for me. It's going to kill me when I miss a couple of questions and it computes to a B instead of an A. That's a lot of pressure!

    ECG's!! My teacher made it harder than it happened to be, and confused the whole class. Most of us are just now recovering from the damage she caused and are starting to get it.

    For me was adjusting to the different teaching styles. We get different instructors for different areas in nursing like psych, GI, Cardio, etc so one day we could be covering psych with one instructor then the next day cover diabetes with another instructor o_O

    Mind you that's was just one of the hardest things for me...we could be here all night if I list the rest...lol so not funny though!

    Getting used to the testing style. my pharm class was ridiculous, didn't learn anything (so it was so easy to get an A) but now it's biting me, I dont know ANYthing about drugs! I just finished Peds, it was tough too. The material is so different from adults, AND I just don't mesh well with kids, so clinicals were awkward for me too. Still got a B tho. Which brings me to my last point... the grading scale! Ughhh!!!! I've gotten a few B's, but they WOULD be A's if a 90% was an A!
