    Look at your professor's ranking on ratemyprofessors.com before you register for his clas. This helps a lot. A&P is a had class.

    Have any of you (who have always wanted to be a nurse) decided that you now DON"T want to become a nurse? If so, why? I am really having second thoughts after the first few weeks of A&P as a pre-nursing class. I honestly don't know if I can remember all of this. I am 54, don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. Our first "big" test is tomorrow, and while I have retained some, I don't feel like it is enough. I keep reading all the negative nurse posts about the occupation, though I have read the good posts as well. I am just really struggling - am expecting my letter of acceptance or denial letter in April for the Fall 2007 LPN program. HELP
    I know how you feel but you just have to keep on perservering. It will all be worth it in the end. I know how you feel A & p is hard for me also, but I look at my kids and think that I am doing it for them. Plus It doesn't matter how old you are.!!Age is just a number.

    ratemyprofessor is a good source, but I have said many times to many folks, the BEST way to find good instructors is to ask others on campus. I notice that the website has too few ratings and some who aren't listed at all. I found it cumbersome and difficult to even add a rating.

    I found my best professors by asking many others for their input. Just because you're interested in a science course doesn't mean that the folks in your English, music, math and other classes haven't already been there. Some of my best instructors were found that way. Word of mouth truly is the best indicator....and the counselors can sometimes be of assistance, but I think their point of view is sometimes skewed, particularly if they may be friends or acquaintances of an instructor. They are, after all, EMPLOYED by the college too.

    Good luck all!!

    I say one should try all sources. Sometimes colleges rate their professors too. Selecting the right professor is very important!!!

    LOL!!!! Shhhhhhhhhhh.... I love these dead threads that are suddenly revived by the powers that be... My understanding is that the old posts come back to life to help us....

    I once read an old thread of mine floating around the student nurses forum a year later. Others started reading it and some RNs even responded... I almost responded to my own question because at the time I had a year of clinical experience under my belt and knew the answer.

    For anyone who wants to know what happened to the OP, here is one of her last posts... I don't know if she is actually around any more...
