Take Microbiology totally online at Mid State Technical College

  1. 0
    wisconsin nursing students:

    i just found out that mid state technical college in wisconsin now offers a microbiology course totally online (4 credits) including the laboratory. they use a labpaq for the online lab so you actually get a microscope and lab kit to use at home so its a "hands on" lab not a virtual lab. my school wants me to have a hands on lab and not a virtual one for transfer prerequisite courses.

    the course is designated microbiology 10-806-197 and the section is listed as 24063. the course is used for their associate degree nursing (rn) program.

    here is their website:

    it begins jan 14, 2010.

    Eastern Oregon University also has a totally online Micro. They are pretty cheap too. $136/ per credit hour for online courses and no out of state fees. I'll be taking it in March (when the next class begins).

    NomadMomma,

    How does Eastern Oregon University handle the lab fees? Do you have to buy a microscope and a LabPaq?

    At Mid State Technical College (MSTC) in Wisconsin Rapids we were directed to buy the LabPaq and Scope from Hands-On Labs in Colorado for their Online Microbiology Course. It ran me a little over $400. It's still a great deal when you consider you don't have to drive to and from a campus 3 days a week.

    From what I can tell you DO NOT have to buy a microscope. You buy agar plates for $25 or so and then photo what "grows" from the various experiments. I'll attach a link to the class syllabus. I'm planning on taking it in March when the next class begins. I don't remember the exact amount for the class but it was substantially less than my local community college (around $500 total). I already bought the book used on-line for $4. The lab manual is downloaded from the course site for free.

    Hope that helps.
