I have been on this forum for almost 14 mos. It has been great! I am no longer pursing nursing as I received a final grade in Micro of C-. This means I have to retake it and at the age of 47 I just don't have it in me. I gave it my best shot. It required at least 15-25 hours a week and with a father fighting cancer, hand surgery, new part time job because we need the money and taking care of a DH, Active son and our dog it just didn't work.
I advise anyone taking Micro (or A&P) to not fall behind and learn to say NO! Also don't take it at Delta College. I don't know what it's like at other schools in the state but they teach it there like they want you all to become P.H.D's in Microbiology and traveling the world looking for the next epidemiology catastrophe.
I wish everyone of you the best - it just wasn't meant to be for me

I'm sorry that you didn't get the grade you needed. I took micro at Macomb CC and it wasn't really bad at all. Of course the professor told us he didn't expect us to learn what graduate students do, so he was selective in which chapters of the text we covered. I have a newfound appreciation for that! Were you pursuing a nursing degree at Delta, or just knocking off some pre-reqs?
