    Well the Denton class filled up, so I will taking Patho at the Dallas campus. That's much more convenient for me, but I would have preferred the Denton class. Now I need to find out what book I need for the class. Any tips on how to do that? Each university seems to have their own system.

    You'll need Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children, 6e. By Kathryn L. McCance. It's a black book with purple and lime green on the front!

    At least you have one first attempt A, and from what I've been reading, you have an excellent GPA. Since you have taken the science classes twice, you should be extra prepared for the TEAS V! I'm sure you will rock the TEAS V and it will even everything out in the decision making process. We all have strengths and weaknesses. Think positive! Good luck!
    Thanks for the words of encouragement! *crosses fingers*

    I agree - it looks scary! I've heard that we read it cover to cover! Ms. Spinozzi called it "A&P on steroids." But I only have one other class with it, and it's sociology online. I also hope to not be working FT anymore by fall, so I should have more time.

    And I'm sure we'll be fine. I've heard so many things about how they weigh what, but I got my back up schools planned out just in case I don't get in, so I'm starting to feel a little better. And I feel you! I'm taking so many summer classes to do last minute GPA bumps to get to a 4.0 - and I studied so hard for my TEAS! I scored an 86. I was shooting for an A, but I suppose I'm okay with my score. I really did do my best!

    Have you taken your TEAS yet?

    At least you're only taking one more class with your pathophysiology! I'll be taking four other classes with it...but I'm not working so I should be fine. I heard it called "A&P on steroids" also, haha. This should be fun...

    I actually haven't bought my book yet. I'll be buying it used off of amazon closer to when classes start, so whatever is the best used price is what I'll be paying for it Gotta save money for upcoming nursing supplies!

    HI, I just signed up. I have taken my other perreq for TWU. am left with Statistics and nutrition which am taking now (summer 1). I plan to take the TEAS at the end of summer 1 . I already applied to TWU for fall, I would like to know if I can go ahead and register for the pathophysiology for fall, because I wouldnt be taking any classes in fall, thank God for this forum, cause I didnt know you could take the class before you are accepted.

    OK, y'all, help me with this. I might be confusing myself! LOL! I was just reading TWU's policy regarding patho (BIOL 4344), and it looks like it basically says that I can take the class before the nursing program begins, but it is not required that I do so. However, if I do choose to take patho, and I bomb it (make a D or lower), it will affect my entry into the upper division nursing program because patho is part of the nursing curriculum. My big fear is that I will be taking patho on the Dallas campus, and I have not heard very good things about the class. Are there different instructors teaching the spring classes? I wonder if the online option for patho is available once we start the nursing program? I would consider the Denton class, but it is full. I'm starting to get nervous!
