Thanks for the reply...
The program I am applying to won't allow online classes
I live in Northern California, and it's so hard to get into any RN programs. I am pretty much applying EVERYWHERE possible. And it's ridiculous, because some require "interpersonal communication" and some require "public speaking", and some don't allow online classes. Some require chemistry and some don't. Some require organic chemistry too. It's so annoying, I am almost tempted to move somewhere else in the country.
This speech requirement is a little annoying to me in the first place. I used to be on a Speech and Debate team, and won 2nd and 3rd place semi-finalist in the U.S. nationals tournament. So, I have no problems with public speaking, and in fact my current job requires me to speak in front of large groups anyway. And there's no way to test out of this prerequisite I guess. Seems silly to me. Anyway, just a little rant.
I just need to take a "public speaking" class sometime this summer in July. I have to be out of country for family reasons during June, so that eliminates a lot of the colleges in my area. I would have taken it this Spring but my schedule was already full. /Sigh.
Please let me know if you've got any ideas for me. I appreciate it.
