[font=Tahoma]I need some words of encouragment. Im 20 years old and dropped the Nursing program at QCC when i was 18 because it was too hard, and too much work. They had a Saturday class from 9 in the morning till 3 in the afternoon ( Anatomy and Physiology). The class itself had like 9 pages of notes a day, that amongst all my other classes I would have to memorize before the following Saturday. Anyway I ended up blowing it.
[font=Tahoma]Took the Medical Office Asst. thing and now I regret it so much. I want to go back to Nursing, but its too damn hard. Is the Excelisior thing you guys were talking about gona make it easy for ppl like me, or should I just go back to school and start from scratch.

If you really want it, you will go back and try that Anat & Phys again. Part of the problem might have been the one day a week scheduling. I couldn't learn it that way. I took it 2 days a week of lecture, 2 days a week of lab, and it goes down a whole lot easier than 1 big bite. It keeps you focused--4 days a week you are getting "reminders" of where you are and where you need to be as far as learning, memorizing, studying, etc. It may not be as easy to find a job to accomodate that schedule, but it's worth trying. Try taking Anat & Phys I with no other sciences, or maybe along with a class you find easier, such as an English class or whatever.
You might be still "growing" as a student--sharpening your test taking skills, studying habits, learning to balance school/work, etc. I think everyone goes through this at some point in their life--with most people it's their first semester or first year of college.
I'm starting nursing school in the fall, and am trying to find the right balance between respect/fear of the classes, and keeping my hopes up that I can make it if I work hard. Good luck to you and keep us posted on your progress...
