    LOL, I hope I am fortunate enough to get accepted into a program around here. I am married, my husband has a wonderful career and we own a home - so we aren't looking to move. I would commute if need be, but there are plenty of nursing schools within the metroplex that I would apply to first.

    And for what it's worth, I personally only stick to one Science class at a time. I work a full time 40hr/week job and typically take 2 night classes a semester. Anything more than that and I tend to get a little overwhelmed. But when it comes to the Sciences, especially since they weigh more on the NS application, I like to take them by themselves so I can devote myself strictly to that class. Granted, if I didn't have to work and I could be a full time student, that might be a different story. But there is only so much time in a day.

    I did A&PII and Micro in the same semester..it worked out great. I made "As" in both classes. I am so glad I did it that way. I also did Speech fast track that same semester.

    I learned the hard way myself to start researching my teachers before I register for the class. I had a horrible teacher for Chemistry, my lab teacher was great; only if I had him for lecture also. I learned to have the same lecture and lab teacher. I was used to going to school online;therefore, I did not understand the importance of selecting the same teacher for lecture and lab. Some of the professors teaching style was miles apart, I had to learn to adapt to both styles of teaching. I go to ratemyprofessor.com to rate each and every professor, before I register for a course.
    I know this is off the topic of the original post, but I just wanted to share what I found with everyone here. There is another website that you can use to get a judge of the kind of teacher and it even has student ratings sometimes. It's www.pickaprof.com you have to register and tell it what school you are going to, but when you pull up the classes and stuff it tells you the average number of people that dropped the class, what grade the people who stayed in class made, and i have found it useful. Just wanted to throw that out there for anyone that might be interested. :spin:

    I just took a&p II and micro this past semester (spring 2009) and I made a B in both classes, you can handle both.

    This is what I'm doing for the Spring 10 semester and I'm kinda nervous about it, hopefully I will make as good a grade as you did.

    I would not recommend for a short summer semester at my school(double labs in each = 4 labs/week) but no problem in a regular semester. There is some overlap with both A&P I and II.
