Hey everyone. I am 25, have a 2 year old daughter and due to a loss of job yet again I am trying to get into nursing school
for Fall 2014. That leaves me the summer, Fall & spring semesters to complete my pre-reqs.
I will not be working while going to school and I think Ill be able to get my daughter in day care for a full 45 hrs.
Am I crazy to try and take AP 1 &2 during the summer sessions? I soak up info pretty easily. I always had A's in school without really trying or studying. (not that I wont have to with A&P but Im pretty smart) And as a bonus school is only about 5 blocks from my house (community college).
Since I would start in June is there any recommended reading I should get a head start with?? I think Ill have to take another class along with it to qualify for financial aid so I think im taking English or something like that. That would leave me with Chem, eng, math & pysch & microbiology for the spring & fall classes. I kinda just wanna get a&p out of the way.

Yea I've seen the recorder advice, definitely something I will do!
Its unrelated but Im also looking to do a CNA program from March-April/May (unemployment will probably pay for it). Im getting excited. Nursing was something I never seriously considered but if I ever though about medicine I always imagined myself in L&D. Then when I was pregnant I got obsessed with pregnancy & L&D, so much so that my OBGYN never had to break down technical terms for me, lol.
edited to add the becoming a CNM is my long-term goal
I will probably get the textbook about a month or 6 weeks before class actually starts
