Just some advice from an old lady. . .if you can make the seat change now, start sitting right up front and center. That way you'll hear the instructor and you won't have to be distracted by the high school airheads. Most of the serious students and "A" students sit up front. Be friendly with other students, but don't let their indecision and ignorance about the nursing program drag you down. If they're too stupid to figure out what they need to do to get into the nursing program, the better for you. Less competition for you when you make your formal application to the program. One of the things college students are supposed to learn is how to find answers to their questions. Sounds like you're already there. Not everyone is cut out to get into nursing programs
. Students who are not assertive and cannot find their way through the system without someone taking them by the hand and showing them are not going to be picked for nursing school. Nurses have to be creative problem solvers who are able to seek answers to their questions rather than have it provided for them. I know it would be nice for you to have someone to go through all your pre-req classes with you, but the reality is that it may not happen. The last thing you need is to be saddled down with a fellow student who is tagging along with you and sucking up all your
hard work to get them through a class. As you get into Anatomy and your chemistry classes you will meet more serious minded nursing students.
By the way, make sure you pay attention to the sections on finding "x" the unknown variable, working with the metric system, and on ratios in your pre-Algebra because they will come in handy when you have to do chemistry and drug calculations for nursing. I re-took all that stuff for review before taking Calculus recently and was surprised at how much I missed the first time around 30 years ago.
