    I am just finishing Prof A and will start B on 8/13. Very interesting course and not hard at all, so far. They give you all 10 week assignments up front so you can work ahead and see what is due next, if you desire. I did not turn assignments in early because I like to get my last assignment grade first. That way you can make corrections (if needed) before submitting the next one.
    Good Luck to all!!

    Hello to everyone, too. RNBound0510, thanks for starting this thread for us. I'm also working full time and am a bit concerned about taking on this endeavor. But, I am determined to make it though and it will be great for us all to meet here with support and questions as you said.

    Hi Amy,
    This info you posted is very very helpful. I was wondering if they would provide assignments up-front and have never read anything here from anyone else who gave us that info. Hope I can help you at some point down the road.

    Excited about this thread! Been a while since I have been in school and NEVER written in APA style! I can do it! I hope.

    I will be starting A&B on Aug 13th also. I have already taken a couple of pre-reqs at UTA (I still have a couple more that I have to take also). I am excited to get started on an actual nursing class.

    Hey Quest4sure,

    Have you taken History I by chance. I made a D in history 1 my first time around in college 20 years ago so have to repeat it. Is it difficult? Keep in touch with A&B in a few weeks!

    Thanks Rosemrn

    Hello,

    Does anyone out there know if this program can be completed using a Mac? I am starting to panic now because someone said only a PC will work and classes start in a few days. I have been all over the website looking at the technical specifications and NOWHERE does it state that a Mac won't work. I've been able to navigate all around the Epic site and have viewed a few lectures and even submitted something and it worked just fine. If I can't use my Mac, I'll have to drop my classes.

    ScarletFire,
    I have a Mac (desktop & laptop). Works like a dream on Epic and Blackboard. You just need Microsoft Office if you don't have it already.

    amyrnfa,

    Thank you so much for your post! I have a brand new MacBook Pro which I purchased specifically for this purpose, plus an iMac desktop which I've had since 2008. (I travel occasionally to see family, so I bought the laptop so I could keep up with the classes). Of course, I have MS Office on both as well. I'm so glad to know I don't have to buy a new computer now. Do you think I will have any difficulty sending papers? It doesn't sound like you did. I'm asking because the instructions for submitting course work looks like it is designed for a PC. I'm starting Prof Nursing A on Monday.

    Scarletfire,
    My MacBook Pro works great and yes, all instructions for each class are in PC format. Just save your work and make sure you do not submit blank assignments. Most of the assignments are "write on" and not student created. Remember, PC owners seem to have a lot of extra steps in saving and formatting documents

    amyrnfa,

    Since I haven't done any assignments yet, I don't really understand what you are saying, so I apologize now if I'm asking stupid questions. What is "write on" and can I write my papers on MS Word and then attach it somehow in order to send? I have PERRLA downloaded already which I really hope I can use so that APA formatting will be somewhat easy. I just can't picture how all this is going to work and I don't want to make a stupid mistake, such as sending a blank document. Can you be more specific? I'm not too computer savvy. Nice to know you are a fellow Mac user. I absolutely love my MacBook, BTW.
