    I took my pre-reqs at BRCC, and we lost at least half of my A&PII class. Most of the students had too many other commitments with family and work to devote the amount of time needed to do well in the class. BRCC doesn't require you to take A&PII until you're accepted into the nursing program, so I hear many students find it nearly impossible to study for A&PII and for their nursing courses. When I took A&PII, we started with 30-40ppl, and by the final, there were about 12 left. One A, about 4 Bs, a few more Cs, and the rest were praying to pass. I suspect that anatomy class is one of the major reasons we see nursing students having to retake classes.

    I'm taking a&pI this semester and i plan to apply to brcc, olol and su in the spring since i took the other prereqs. My friend at su said one of the teachers at brcc was fired from su and olol becuse to many students failed her classes.

    although the A&PII class was difficult, it wasn't any more difficult than the other Biol/Kin classes I took at LSU. I thought the tests were fair.

    I am a student at BRCC also...curious if you could send me a private message of the teachers name. Many new teachers have been added this semester. A heads up for studying is greatly appreciated

    Is it true BRCC lost their nursing dean and the program can not get accredited? What will happen if I get accepted in the spring, can I work as a RN?

    eyespy i would like to know where you heard that because, dosen't that mean that the students who are graduating are not going to be able to work at certain places do to it not being accredited, i heard that some places don't hire you unless you have graduated from a accredited instituition. some one who is in the nursing school please clear this up for us.

    I have not heard that info hmmmm.....

    Please let me know where this info came from; I need to investigate. I graduate in 7 months!!!

    Also who was the teacher that your friend told you was fired from OLOL & SU? I haven't heard that one either

    I heard that from my mothers friend who teaches at OLOL. She said I should apply at OLOL because BRCC doesnt have a dean. But OLOL cost to much.

    She told me about the teacher who had problems at OLOL and SUBR because students complained that she talk down to them, and to many people failed her test.

    from what I am aware...the dean we had stepped down and has been replaced. I don't want to post names on here. (just out of respect for the person)

    Curious to know about the teacher that was fired...can you pm me their name. Would like to know what class I need to be careful with my studing habits in. If the teacher is super hard...I'd like to know.

    thanks
