    I was wondering if i will have to take all 5 classes as stated. or can i take patho in summer? what would you suggest?

    If patho is taken in the summer, it's usually the summer before you start the nursing program - I don't know anyone who started the program then took patho the following summer. The first semester seems like a lot, but you'll only have clinical one day a week (and you start in Feb, I think) so it *is* doable!

    Get a planner and stay organized! Don't get too behind on reading (you will get behind though because it's impossible to read everything), remember it WILL get better and nursing school doesn't last forever, don't judge nursing as a career by clinicals, do make time for yourself to have fun, always carry a few extra pens (for clinicals and class)...and.. erm... that's all I can think of right now.

    Stay organize, plan ahead, for patho if u have dr. da cunha study the notes only, he breaks down path to an elementary level and i never used the book. He is one of the best teachers. Pharm the same thing the notes, i would definitely read the book for assessment and therapeutic but that is just my opinion. Have fun and try to learn how to manage your time.

    I just graduated in Dec from the Dallas Campus.

    About Patho... up here, some took it in the summer, not very many. My first semester, I had Assessment, Therapeutics, and Pharm on Tuesdays. There were two patho classesne Monday and one Wednesday. I was in the Wednesday class. Assessment has a lab portion, that was either Wed, Thurs, or Friday (morning and afternoon classes). I had the Thursday morning class. I then had Nursing Experience that afternoon, and I believe there was another class on Monday afternoon. I then had Therapeutics lab/clinical on Fridays (there were others on Wed and Thurs). We did not get to pick our schedules, but were allowed to switch with someone if we both agreed and the instructors allowed.

    The Therapeutics lab on campus was from 8-3 or something, but the clinical was only 6 hours or so.

    Patho wasn't too bad. I didn't know taking it early was an option and wouldn't have had time to do so anyway. I doubt that I would have done better at it if I had taken it early anyway.

    I could have gone to UTA but didn't because of the interview. Way back when I started TWU hahaa.. they didn't have a NET requirement, it was given to place us in a special class or not, and if you had to be in the study class, you had to go an extra semester. TWU was strictly GPA then, which is why I only applied there. UTA was closer, but TWU was the place for me.

    Anyway... long story short, I can answer questions as well!
