General Education Classes...

  1. Well all....I signed up today to take my 4 general education courses this fall... I have to take

    Advanced Anatomy and Physiology
    Public Speaking

    in order to finish them up for the ASN program at school.
    They go by a point system. You have to have a certain amount of points in order to even get in! ANd they don't use points from grades in your LPN courses either...
    My grades weren't that hot (mostly B's and C's), so I decided to go ahead and take all 4 classes this fall in order to try and get my points up for a better chance of getting in ASN. I'm afraid now because I thought if you didn't make it the first time, you were put on a waiting list for the next year.
    Come to find out today, if you don't make it the first time around, you have to wait another year, and do the whole blasted thing over again!
    So I really need to bust my buns and get this done...

    Thanks for listening everyone...I just needed to vent a little and cry my tears of frustration
    Even though I know I'm moving ahead, I feel sometimes like it's just bumping my head against a wall!
    But you know what? After I'm done, I'm gonna be a and a darn good one!
    Let me get off my soapbox now...

    Boy! I would have been tempted to take a semester off! You must really have drive. I noticed that you are also working. How do you do it? They won't give us a schedule for Fall yet, but they did say to expect about 27 hrs a week of med- surg plus class time. We are also expected to study 2 hours a day for every hour of class. They told us to clean our house real good before Fall semester because we wouldn't have time to clean it again until next summer. How many hours a week are you in school? I hope I can handle it as well as you seem to

    Are you in a PN or RN program? I didn't have a hard time at all in PN school (yes, I passed boards first time up ). I guess I may just be good at tests or something. I enjoy reading on my own and that was what helped me. I did use my class time wisely and took good notes. Other than that, I didn't have to study for 10 hours a day. Please don't stress out from this. You can do it...find a managable schedule and don't forget to stop and smell the roses. GOOD LUCK!

    Happy Nursing~Angie

    julie, you can do it!

    once you graduate from lpn school and get your license, the stress will be a little less because you will have finished one milestone you are aiming for.

    the classes you will be taking this fall for rn school, i am sure you will handle them well. we are here for you to vent at any time.

    as always, keep the faith!
