  10. Pathophysiology
    Pathophysiology was a pre-req for my program. I found that if you paid attention and did well in A&P, then you just build upon that knowledge a little bit and should do well. However, like others...

  15. " Self directed" nursing program..???
    I agree with That Guy. I like the structure of a classroom setting and having deadlines. It'd be too easy for me to put off doing my work. If you are motivated and self-driven it might could work...
