    Hey, nursemelani,

    No worries. I never found lecture to be helpful @ all in anatomy, in fact I rarely went to class during A&P II (and still got an A ) - never missed lab though (you DO NOT want t' get behind in there). Anatomy is mostly rote memorization anyway.

    Is there a discussion portion to your on-line course you can you use for clarification if you need to?
    That is reassuring. I'm good at memorizing.

    I am a divorced mother of a 7 and 12 year old. I am also the DON of an assisted living facility. I really want to start my nursing in the fall and want all of the prereqs out of the way! I did 5 classes last semester but two of them were 8 week courses so I really only had 4 classes going at once. I may have to drop one or two of these but I am really going to try to finish them!

    First, I want to give major KUDOS to those of you who work and/or have children to take care of and somehow manage to get through all these difficult classes!!!


    I'm taking:
    Intro to Micro
    Developmental Psychology
    Professional Transitions (wayyy more in-depth than I thought!)

    and.........
    I am challenging the medication calculations class by taking an exam---I've been working sooo hard on that---math= yuck! -I hope I can pass!

    We also have to take a written exam and demonstrate hands-on skills in the lab to prove our knowledge/skills before we are considered for the RN program.
