Hi all. I am (or was) a Fall 2014 Nursing hopeful, until I just got some not so good and irritating news. Just a little background. I already have BS in a different field and was on the fence for a while with what I really wanted to do, but I finally decided that I wanted to be a nurse. I figured I would go for my ASN at my local college. So, I registered and noticed the pre-reqs for getting into the program.
I saw (or thought) that I only needed Microbiology and lab, college algebra, psychology, and A&P 1 and Lab. I already took and passed the lecture A&P 1 but I withdrew from the lab, so I figured that I would only need the lab portion of it and I would hopefully be set for Fall 2014 entry (app deadline is May 14, 2014). After all my credits from the University and the college transferred over, my A&P was not counted. I immediately contacted my advisor who told me that because this particular college's A&P courses are integrated and interrelated, they are combined for one comprehensive grade, meaning I HAVE to take them together. Has anyone ever heard of that?? Even though they may be interrelated, it's essentially the same course, right? Why would it make a difference?
A&P was a very difficult class for me and I passed through many blood, sweat and tears. This was a class that had me wanting to crawl up and cry a lot which is why I withdrew from the lab, it was just too much. Any advice on how to handle this? Thanks in advance.
