I am a student currently taking my pre-reqs for a number of Master's Entry Nursing programs
throughout SoCal (probably the most impacted part of the country for this program). Since I started this process 3 years ago, I've had an exceedingly difficult time getting into sciences courses. I've already earned my Bachelors, so my registration date is always late, and with the huge demand for these classes, it's been nearly impossible to even get on a waitlist.
I've been lucky enough to get into Anatomy and Physiology. The biggest challenge, however, has been getting into Microbiology. It's the last class I need, and after waiting 2 semesters, only to be rejected from a total of 6 different sections at 3 different schools, my last option appears to be at a private university that offers an accelerated Micro class over the span of 4 weekends. Yes, that's right. 8 days to do what most can barely grasp in 16 weeks.
I wonder if there's anyone out there who has taken such a class, and who might be willing to share their experience? I'm also open to any advice you might have as far as getting into Micro. Maybe there are other schools that offer the course (not accelerated) at a private school? At this point, I'm willing to pay almost anything.
Thanks in advance. Sorry it's such a long post.
