Quote from Gabriela06
The school only has admission once a year for the fall. So technically I'd have to wait a whole year if I don't get in. And I'm taking a&p 1 this semester (fall 2017)and I will be taking a&p 2 next semester (spring 2017)
In the spring I'm taking a&p2 (lab and lecture), microbiology (lab and lecture) and possibly the human growth class which would make it 5 classes in total.
Like others have said, lab and lecture constitute 1 class, ergo it only equates to 3 classes. If you cannot handle 3 lectures and 2 labs, how are you going to handle nursing school? In our first semester, there are four lectures each 4 hours long, a 4.5 hour lab, and an 8 hour clinical (also considered a lab.
Most Bachelor's students (in other programs) take 3 science lectures, 3 labs, and 2 additional lecture classes in one semester. It's actually the typical load for a science undergrad. I think Junior year I had 1 non science a semester, and Senior year I had none.
Only you know what's right for you, but just some perspective. I am highly concerned that you think lecture and lab are 2 separate courses.
PS (Last fall I did A&P II, A&P II Lab, Micro, Micro Lab, Lifespan Development, Intro to Soc, and Intro to Nursing) sooooo.... it's doable.
