    start nursing in fall along with with some courses that are pre-reqs for most of you. Going to Sandhills CC for ADN. In this program you can take the "pre-reqs" as you call them along with the program. I graduate from hs on may 28 and then start nursing school in fall 2004. SO excited can't wait.

    Doesn't look like I'm going to be class of 2006 after all - I got into the nursing program, got the scholarship, but I don't think I'm going to pass this darn online chemistry course. How depressing is that?

    Hang in there Manna. Are there tutors at your school that could help you? What stuff are you having trouble with? Chem's takes a lot of work, at least it did for me.

    Thanks.... There's not really anywhere I can go for help. I'm taking the class online (I'm not an on-campus student at my college, and this instructor is with a different school entirely), so it's sort of a "do or die" learning system. So far I've been doing terribly, but I'm really hoping and praying very hard that I can pull my grade up to at least a C by the end of the semester (April 21st).

    You might ask around the local college or high school & try to see if a student or instructor might be willing to tutor you. It'll cost you a few $$ (cheaper if it's a student, usually), but it may help. And don't forget about the good folks here...we can try to help you out too.

    You can do it!

    I got an A in chemistry last semester. Pm me if you'd like, maybe I can help??
    Sometimes having things explained outside of the book can make things click. I have faith in you, you can do it!!

    I'm still here fighting tooth and nail to get pass Chem. I'm feeling fairly confident, if I do well on the final, that I'll at least pass. But it's a big wooly comprehensive bugger, so I'm nervous about that. Nevermind what a C will do to my GPA, I just want to pass. Waah!

    How is everyone else out there doing? I have my last final on April 21, and I'm looking forward to a little break before nursing classes (hopefully) start in July!

    manna, you got in to the nursing program, you can ease up on your GPA for a bit! Study hard for your final, take the C and RUN! and if you need help studying, don't ask me! I haven't taken chem since high school! :chuckle

    I guess since I'm am now "officially" accepted, I'll come out of lurkdom and introduce myself. I'm Susan, 35 yo wife and mom of a 6yo dd and a 10yo ds. I'll be starting the BSN program at TWU-Dallas in the fall if all goes well in these last two prereqs. Manna, I feel your pain with chemistry. I never thought my ambition would be to get a C in perspective has changed!
