Former and current nursing students,
Please refer to my thread in Student Nursing about medicaly-minded nursing students.
I need anyone in the Maryland or D.C. university systems to relate what kind of curicculum they have. I'm leaving my current program because it's not grounded in much science, and if you've read my thread in the student forum about being medicaly-minded in a nursing program, you'll know that I'm looking for a stronger demand in a program for the core sciences like organic chem, biology, patho, and physiology.
I know that the "touchy-feely" courses that deal with transcultural, social, developmental and other humanities-type issues will be inevitable, but the comments there made me think I might be overlooking a nursing program I might enjoy.
I want to look at other nursing programs
because of what information I've gathered on that thread. I sold my books back, and started to look into biology degree programs for the science, but apparently my former nursing program is not typical of the level of scientific demand and there may be a program around that my at least meet me halfway. It would be very nice to confer with some people that have actualy been in them or through them so I can get a realistic picture.
