A&P I Spring 2007 Semster - Welcome! - page 2

I will be taking A&P I next semester when I come back from Christmas break for the Spring 2007 semester. I didn't know if someone was going to start a group or not, so I thought I would create a... Read More

    Count me in for Spring'07 API. My college has an interim January term so the Spring semester doesn't start until the end of January and after this Fall I'm THRILLED to have this time off before starting API to regroup and strategize. This was a bad, bad semester and I'll probably end up retaking the Psych and Micro I'm just now finishing up. My gut tells me I should withdraw from Sociology that I'm registered for along with the API and focus solely on AP, but the terms of my student loan don't allow going below 6 credits.

    ANYWAY! Glad to be aboard and look forward to comiserating with you all here! lol

    Hi. Is this your 1st semester? Anyways, I know how it feels b/c I was not really being smart when I set up my schedule for taking classes the last two semesters. I took Algebra, English, Ethics, Humanities, Computer, Psychology when I really should have started with an Anatomy class oh well, now I gotta wait even longer before I can apply. So don't feel bad, we're all playing the waiting game LOL
    Hi Lost
    I did the exact same thing. I took Chemistry, then stats, Child development, speech, psychology, and now I can't believe I have to take A&P I, Bio 120, (this spring) then A&P II then Micro. I should have done that 2 semesters ago!!! Glad to see I am not the only one!!! Count me in! I am sure we will need all the support we can get!

    Wow!! Thanks everyone for the support and advice. I knew this would be a long process, but I get frustrated every now and then. I have finished all my pre-reqs except for anatomy (coming right up), physiology, and micro. After that I will probably need 3 months of volunteer time before I have enough points to get into the school I want. I had this great PLAN to finish right before I turned 40. However, things have not quite worked out the way I planned.

    Anyhow, it is great to find such a supportive place!

    Hi everyone. I sure would like to join. I am taking both AP1 and Micro. I already got some of the books and I can hardly pick up the AP book! I get a mild panic attack everytime I look through it. There is so much! I can tell right away that this is a class that I never want to get behind in. I am sure I will have lots of questions.

    I'm glad I found you guys! I will be taking Chem 1 and A&P 1 this semester. I love all things science. Is it crazy to believe I will do okay because I rock at this with Trivial Pursuit? Just kidding, but seriously, I do love all things science. I went to this website that has sample NCLEX questions and didn't rock so much! I know it is a long hard road, but I am ready to buckle down and achieve what has been put aside for over 20 years! It's great to be in the company of others who have lived (!!!) before coming to this wonderful conclusion that we should all be nurses! We all have some great gifts to share! I am 42 and starting this journey after a very fulfilling 21 year military career (in electronics, go figure!). I still have so much more to give! I'm looking forward to this semester, with all its challenges.... How do I join this group?

    I am excited for the spring semester to begin. (We'll see how I feel in a couple months.) My finals for Chemistry are next Tuesday. So far I am getting an A, Thanks for starting this thread.

    To add: I am scared of cadavers. LOL
