    Congratulations! I think you should start looking over your books now. Websites like Quizlet and Youtube helped me a lot.

    First of all, congratulations! Best wishes as you begin your program.

    It would help if you gave the names of the courses instead of the numbers..i.e. fundamentals, pharmacology etc. in order to be able to give you better answers. The numbers aren't uniform across schools.

    Enjoy your last few weeks of freedom

    Have you bought your books yet? Some instructors will post assignments a week or two before school begins so I would check into that. Also, you might consider posting in the Alabama state nursing programs forum as there might be someone there in the same program as you http://allnurses.com/alabama-state-nursing/

    As far what is most challenging, I think you might get all sorts of answers because we are all so different and have different strengths and weaknesses. One of my friends found cardiac meds in pharmacology the most difficult but for me it was the neurological meds. For fundamentals, the hardest thing for me was learning to use critical thinking especially in exams.

    Once you start the program, you will have more specific questions and you will get answers/guidance from the many fabulous posters who post here.

    Good luck.
