  1. 0 Has anyone taken thinking critically and creatively? Is it hard, or is it a piece of cake?...what does the class involve?

    I have never heard of such a class. No offense, but it sounds like one of those 1-day Saturday classes that are worth 1 credit hour. We have classes like that my college and they are called like "Test Taking Skills", "Coping with Stress", etc. I took a 2-credit hour class called "Success in Nursing Education" which basically exposed us to how case studies are done, how nursing school tests differ from traditional styles of testing, how to best manage our time, how to be organized, different learning styles, etc. It was helpful in that I'm not going into nursing school completely blind about testing/case studies.

    Well, sorry to say, but none of us know who your professor is, what kind of teacher they are, etc. If it's any consolation though, my Success in Nursing class was super easy. It almost always depends on the professor. My A&P1 class was way harder than my Microbiology class, and I am 99% sure it's because of the professors and their teaching styles.

    Anatomy and Physiology. Some schools have A&P1 as a combined course, then A&P2 as another. They build off of each other. I believe that other schools offer the courses separately, but go into more depth with each one so that the same material is covered, just at different points.

    I'm taking Intro to Critical Thinking now, my last semester. It's really not difficult, but there's a lot of essays, online discussion posts (online class) and it can get to be time consuming. I'd rather spend this time on preparing for NCLEX, and this class is kinda boring, but it's not terribly difficult. But it all depends on the instructor

    A lot of schools. It's not a test success class as some might originally think. At my school, it falls under Philisophy and is "Intro to Logic & Critical Thinking".

    It's not hard, but it is a bit of a time suck - lots of essays and such.
