Hi everyone, I'm currently at a CC finishing up most of my prereqs before transferring out to university to a BSN program. I originally planned on taking lifespan development to fulfill an elective requirement, but I found out it wouldn't transfer over the way I wanted it to, so I'm going to take child psych.
Anyone else take this? Have you found it useful during clinicals?
It is a subject that interests me so I have no qualms about taking it, but if I ever land in peds someday, it would be a plus if this class would happen to come in handy.

I found the growth and development aspect of child psychology extremely useful in pediatrics. Besides that I didn't really like the class but then again I never really cared for any of the social sciences.
