I spent 7 years at a private school that emphasized classical/liberal arts education. I don't like taking certain classes, like philosophy and other humanities simply because I spent too many of my high school days trying to read The Republic
and other boring books.
I know what you mean about wanting to start nursing school. Definitely cannot wait to be done with my Drawing I class. Yes, drawing is lovely and artsy-fartsy; fun to do when I have free time, not so fun when the teacher insists that everything is drawn in black, and gray and nearly every day we're drawing the same ugly still-life! She puts a cooking pot, a cowboy boot, and a couple of vases on the table and we have to draw it for 3 hours. I've been in class since AUGUST. LOL
I do think having a rounded education is important, though. There is a world beyond science pre-requisites, and it's very important (even if you don't think the course has any practical value) to learn about a variety of topics. You never know when it comes in handy. When I was working as a CNA, I sometimes provided care for veterans of war. My fixation with history came in handy, as I was able to break the ice with these residents. They seemed impressed when I actually knew the places they said they fought at, and what those battles were for.
