  14. The narc drawer...I'm so upset.

  15. Are older nurses being forced out of the profession?

  19. I need advice on withdrawing from a bio class
    I would certainly get a poorer grade if I had to listen to the class on tape. I'd drop that class in a heartbeat or ask for a textbook with the same material in it. You can suffer a couple W's on...

  20. Accelerated BIO 201-202, CHM 151-152?
    There's no 8 week BIO 201/202 or CHM 151/152 option at Rio Salado, I already checked. They used to offer it, but no longer. :( I'll have a look at CAC, thanks!
