    My advisor had to clear me for Patho and Pharm once I took Chem, as well.

    They did take my pharm and patho. They will not take the 2 hour courses but did take the 3 hour nursing courses. I'm in the AP as well. It is very busy but very doable. The program has far exceeded my expectations. Don't let yourself get behind and you will do great. I have 2 children and was able to work about 15 hrs a week and keep up with my studies. Not much free time though. Good luck!

    Violach-what I interpreted from my advisor, is basically as long as you meet the minimum that they have listed you can apply and be accepted, but if you have not completed or do not pass the remaining required courses you will not be able to start and they will call someone from the waitlist. Obviously, you would have to reapply for a later start date.

    Olddog40,

    Are you in your first semester? I heard the work load during the first semester is lighter?
    I have a 16 month old at home and I'm debating whether I can do this or not. If I'm accepted, I will be starting in August/September.
    I am a SAHM and my son is very needy and clingy to me! lol! I can see myself spending 4-5 hours a day away from my son and doing school work, but not any more than that. Do you think that's doable? I usually eat, take a shower, and all of that while watching my son; so I don't really need any extra time to take care of my own stuff. Plus, I have my mom helping me with dinner, and keeping up with the house!
    I know weekends are full clinical days so I'm already expecting that, but that's ok because he will be spending good quality time with his dad.
    I read on an older post that between class work and studying, you need to allocate 40+ hours a week, not including weekends. Would you agree with that statement?
    Thanks and congrats for getting in

    Olddog40,

    I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old. I think it may be doable if you have a good support system. I have wondered the same thing. My husband travels for work, so when he is away I will have to ask my parents to help out with the kids or find a nanny/child care. Where there is a will, there is a way.

    I let the house go when I have to study. The dishes can wait! ;-)

    We do 2 10-12 hour clinical days a week. I would say I study at least 20 hours on top of that. It is a very intense program from day one! That being said, I love it. My kids are older- seven and ten. I don't know if I could have done it when they were smaller but there are plenty of people in my cohort with little ones. Also, the program is fast- 18 months and you are a BSN. I am in my second semester. Good luck to both of you.

I am re-taking Micro in the summer to make an A and bring my science GPA to a 3.5 but I know I will not be applying with that to spring UTA since it is due june 1st and then taking path and pharm in the fall
