    I have 3 prereqs to take Hist I because I made a D when I took it my first semester back in 1981. I also have to take Texas gov't and a literature class. I plan just to take professional nursing A in August by itself. REally nervous about getting back into school! We will have to keep in touch!
    I'm just as nervous. Yes, we will keep in in touch and maybe we can help each other PRN.

    I just finished history 2, tech writing, and english 2. All I have left is literature, stats and college algebra...not excited about math and will probably need to take these alone. I will have to take my laptop with me on vacation to make sure I don't miss anything. I could also work on my plane ride. Since there are no direct flights to our destination from our city, I will have time. I decided that I don't want to put off school for this vacation...

    We can open up a new thread so we can keep in touch once August 13th rolls around for support and help!! :-)

    Good luck to all of you

    Hi RNBound,
    I would love to keep in touch with as many people as possible once we all start in Aug. I am new to posting here, so I don't know how to start a new thread. Hope you do. Secondly, how was history II? I'm thinking of taking it along with Prof Nurs A. I need to take 2 together so this whole endeavor doesn't take me forever to complete. Can you give me any insight about the class?
    Hope you have a wonderful vacation.

    Hey ScarletFire and RNBound,

    What books are you guys going to buy for Professional nursing A&B. I figured I better get the APA made easy, but not sure if I need the other?!!!! Any ideas

    Thanks rosemrn

    Hey Rosemrn,

    For APA, I use the software PERRLA and it is fantastic and easy to use. I highly recommend it...it was very inexpensive on Amazon.com. I am not buying any books for this class so far...

    Have any of you heard of straightliner college credits?? I was just reading about it and those courses would be awesome if they did for sure transfer to UTA!

    RnBound,
    I cannot seem to send a PM to your request, so here is the info. Prof A is very simple the first few weeks. There is an APA paper due at the end of week 2 (the reason you chose nursing). You should be able to start the class early around Aug 9th or 10th, so you can get a jump on all the assignments that are due and what is involved in each. For the July 2nd start, we were able to get into our class June 29th. I went on vacation during week 3 but did bring a laptop so I could work a little. Good Luck!

    I have put off Stats as long as possible. I am thinking of taking it in Jan because my class schedule is full till December. If you take it keep us posted! This fall I have N3335, 3325, & 3425. That's about all I can handle after taking 3 classes this summer.
    Good Luck!

    Thanks RNBound,

    I have PERRLA on my computer but haven't used it yet. Thanks for the information!

    I paid for professional nursing today! Scary, but want to get going in this RN to BSN thing!

    Hi Rosemrn,
    I already have the APA book, but I, too have heard about PERRLA, the software program and I intend on getting that. Regarding any other books for this class.....I didn't think there were any. I have the list in front of me and it only mentions the APA book.
