Hi everyone! First I just want to say what an awesome resource this is!
My name is Jessica, and I am a first year student doing my pre nursing studies. I am on schedule to get in to the nursing program at my school for Fall 2014 (if everything goes smoothly!) As of right now I pretty much just have Bio, Micro Bio, A&P 1 and 2. At the school I go to getting the CNA license is mandatory, and I plan on going to work after I complete the class and clinical.
Here is my dilemma:
I plan on taking Biology 211, Nurs100, and Stats.
I would have Biology, Tuesdays and Thursdays, Nurs100, Wednesdays, and Stats EITHER Online OR In class Monday and Wednesday.
I know this is a really big class load for the summer and I was hoping for some suggestions for people that have also taken big summer course loads. I am going to be living back at my parents house for those 2 months so that I am closer to my school and that I have very little distractions for my studies.
Also, should I take online Stats or in class Stats? In all math classes I have taken this far I haven't dropped below a 93%. My GPA as of right now is a 4.0.
Thanks for the time and help! It's great that we have so many experienced people to ask questions to!

I am not strong in math at all, and I took Stats online and earned an A. The on campus class uses the same software for homework and quizzes, so they really aren't much different in my opinion. There are still tons of resources available to you in an online Math class. As long as you are disciplined and do the work required, you will do well. I have found that most people who warn against taking it online saying it'll ruin your GPA simply did not do the work they should have. Don't let online math scare you, it's not any different than taking it in class other than the driving time you will save. As long as you take advantage of your teacher and outside resources when you get stuck, you will do great!
I haven't taken statistics. I wanted to take it online this summer but "most" of the reviews I read were against taking it online so I had to register for the hybrid class, which begins on the 20th.
I mentioned it in my comment that it was based on the reviews I read.
Thanks for re-assuring Jessica.
Just giving an input on what I thought was a nice idea, but it appears we most likely would like to hear what we want to hear in a situation like this.
