  5. How hard is A&P really?
    I would say it does not matter how "hard" it is. It is required to become a nurse. You want to be a nurse you must do it and do well. Train your mind to welcome challenge instead of fearing it. ...

    You are going to hit walls. We all did when applying to nursing school. The ones who become nurses power through it. If you are already frustrated and want to quit then nursing probably isn't for...

  9. 2nd degree BSN worth it?
    I did an ABSN. It is not an advantage because you still have to take the exact same nursing classes as traditional. They feel you can handle 21 hours a semester because people have already proven...

    You told the person to say they had a BSN when they do not have a BSN. Because some person at the college states you "can say" you have a BSN is asking for serious trouble. You list the degree you...

  11. Implementing a new policy without informing students?
    Once you fail a class you have just given the school ammunition. Then the situation is out of your control. Make sure you learn from this experience and take full control of your life. As long as...

  13. Microbiology
    If he said he doesn't give As then what is the question? Sounds like the instructor answered the question. If you actually earn a 93 and don't get an A then complain the head of the science dept.

    Some nursing pre reqs require labs. No option. Most require a Chemistry class and lab (Often two). A&P I and II always require a lab. You will have to check with schools as far as transferring. ...

  17. So I have a few questions about my GPA.
    Take my post with a grain of salt? The OP was asking questions about better grades so I stated study more or change your study methods. Is that not "constructive criticism?" Why does anyone...
