Spring and Summer Semesters

  1. I've talked with my nursing advisor and she told me that I won't be able to complete a lot of my BSN non-nursing subjects while in school. Not that I was planning on doing that because I've learned that nursing school is very intensive on the nursing school part.

    But I have two semesters before I would be going to nursing school, as in I apply for a fall start next semester, and so I would have the spring and summer semesters to fit in as much of the non-nursing courses as possible.

    For the spring semester I've signed up for A&P II, English II, a math class, a psych class and a philosophy class. Two are needed for the ADN portion of school and the others for transfer.

    Over the summer I was considering taking a bunch of science classes Bio 101, Chem 101 and microbiology. Would that be too much you think?

    I'm passing my A&P I class with a 96% and I enjoy science. It would also get all of my science related courses out of the way and I could focus on nursing and my "toss away" classes (art and history) during nursing school until next summer.

    Out of curiosity, why are you taking intro. classes after you've already taken both A&P classes? Unless you need them to maintain full-time status or to give you additional elective credits? If you've done we'll in sconce, you can definitely handle the two 101s over the summer, but micro in 6 weeks can be tough. I'm sure you can do it, but you might consider just micro if you don't need the other classes.
