  9. Can we talk about breastfeeding and breastmilk please?

  14. Worth it to retake A&P 1 and 2?
    Personally, I would move on to Microbiology. Score an A in that class and move forward. I honestly would apply to several programs first. You may get accepted. They do take into account your entrance...

  19. Anyone using ATI?
    We use ATI as well and you have to get a level 2 to forego remediation. I think less than a level 1 you fail the course.
