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

    suburbanmom: "Tactical patience" is the key term here....
    Three things need to be considered.
    1. you have to get competitve grades....nothing lower than a B, A's are of course always better.
    2. Don't sign up for too many classes or you cant get competive grades
    3. No other classes will require you to put in more study time than the science prerequisites.

    It's taken me a little longer than usual, too to get those classes done. The anatomy classes are very time consuming. I have thought the same things and wished things would go faster. But we can't do everything all at once....many of us have other things in our lives occupying and zapping our energy than school.
    Take your time and pace yourself. The important thing is that you reach your goal in the end. Good luck.
    I agree with stpauligirl. Hey, I started bck to school at 50. I'm 51 now and work at UPS. Right now it's peak (puke) season at UPS at things are totally crazy. Tommorrow (Thur), I will take my lecture exam in A&P 1. I will do ok because I prepared. I guess the point I'm trying to make is, not to look at this thing in the big picture but to break it down into steps and take one step at a time. I'm registured for A&P II and CNA for the Spring semester. I wish the best for you. Cheers

    I'm taking Anatomy at my local community college and Spanish 101 on line through another community college. The BSN/RN program I want to get into requires that you either pass a 2nd language proficiency test or have taken up to Intermediate Spanish in the past five years. So I'm starting with 101. I just finished Medical Terminology on line (the first class towards a certificate in Medical Billing/Coding/Reimbursement). I'm hoping to finish the Certificate Program so I can do that at home when I go to Nursing School full time. It will take time, 4 semesters to finish my Science Pre-reqs. I already have my A.A. in General Education so I don't have to worry about that. Just Anat, Phys, MicroB and Biology 2. I'm glad to be on this list and have support. I know I'll need it. School, full time job and 3 year old daughter. phew!!!! Good luck to everyone!!! I'll be checking in often

    I'm in. Class starts Jan 16th for me. I was surprised to receive a letter in the mail this weekend. My school is offering a three hour course on how to prepare for A&P. Yikes. Must be tough. I just finished up with Bio last semester and I'm waiting on my TEAS scores this week. I'm a returning student, at 35 I think I've finally figured out what I'm meant to be:-) Glad to be here.

    Just study, you'll do fine in A&P. So, how was the TEAS test? I have to take it by Jan 20th. Does anyone else have any advice on the TEAS?

    Hello to all of you.

    suburbanmom I know the time factor too. I am also enrolled in a 4-year program in a University starting next February. I am from Brazil so I am very curious to know about the nursing program at a University there, to compare the courses that make part of the program, to see if they are the same ones here.
    Thanks and good luck.

    Hello jmmckeith,
    I purchased a study manual on-line from Atitesting.com. It was about 40 dollars. It contained 4 sections: reading, grammar, math, and science. After taking the test I realized that the study manual was not that helpful in preparing for the test. The test was pretty much general knowledge, either you know it or you don't. Good luck :spin:

    I just found out I got an "A" in biology. Wow, did that ever boost my confidence level. I'm a returning student after a 15 year hiatus. My son was injured at birth. If anyone wants to check out a slide show I did regarding his injury, here the site... InjuredNewborn - Brachial Plexus Injury Awareness&Prevention
    Click on the purple box on the right that says "many faces of bpi"
    This is a must see for any expectant moms out there!!!
