Starting my journey summer 2013!

  1. After years of tossing around the idea of pursuing a nursing degree I have finally decided that I want to be a nurse 100%!

    I have just paid all of my old college debts and will enroll into A&P 1 and 2 this summer!

    I plan on ordering the book asap and also some more studying materials and possibly a coloring book

    I am so excited!

    Hopefully I will be able to complete all of my pre-reqs and apply for the Fall 2014 nursing program by Feb 1st!

    Good luck everyone!!

    Good luck! You will do great, just make sure that you are serious about studying and never let yourself slack! I took AP 1&2 last year. It wasn't so bad actually, I actually prefer that than what im taking now ( Organic Chem). Hope you do great and get into your program!

    Congratulations on your decision! You won't regret it. I loved A&P and had a fantastic professor. I hope your experiance is equally as good. I am in my first semester of the program and have used had to look back at my A&P notes to refresh my memory on things. Take good notes and really try to cement what you are learning into your brain, you will use it again.

    Best of luck to you!!

    Congrats! I was in your shoes not too long ago. I joined a month before I decided to change my career to nursing. Now I am a nurse.

    That day will come for you too!

    Good luck What worked best for me in A&P labs were taking pictures of the models, then printing out the pictures, then numbering the pictures. Then I made an answer sheet, just to check my self when I was done. Worked so good I had a 98 average in lab. As for lecture I really feel if you have a great professor they will truly help you understand it. We did many projects to help with the physiology part. I just got accepted into the fall 2013 nursing program.

    Thanks everyone! I started another thread, but maybe I should have just posted it here? My schools site won't let me add my second A&P class for the second half of summer. Will an adviser be able to add it for me? It's filling up fast and I need to get in!!

    Go see your advisor ASAP. They don't have priority registration in your school? Your advisor can add you, our school wont do it over the phone. You have to be there. Usually they are always there, in their office.
