    i want an online course too, but there arent really. Im looking for health related courses, but they are all time conflicting with my clincial times. And I reallly dont want an 8AM course if I dont really have too. But im still looking. Thanks for everyone that responded.

    Maybe a comparative religion class to go along with the more culturally sensitive we're needing to be these days?

    Are you at Michigan State? If so, I went there from 80-83 and I took a real interesting class called Science technology and society--a biomedical ethics class that counted that fulfilled the social science requirement and was an easy A

    Sounds like you need a better advisor.

    Our program has nursing advisors who are willing to sit with each student and find nursing electives that will boost them to full time. Of course, you can take whatever you want. I personally would rather take an English course because I love reading and writing. Just find something that will fit in with your schedule. And make it fun! School is tough enough.

    If the program you are in leads to an Associate's degree, take something that will help you when you go to get your Bachelor's degree, like nutrition or psychology or organic chemistry. If you are in a Bachelor's program, take something you are interested in, since you obviousely cannot take anything Nursing, take culture and health, or diversity, or ethics, or spanish, or anything that will apply to your Master's degree. Trust me, you never know when you might go back to school.

    My two cents.

    I had to get 9 Arts & Humanities credits, so I signed up for Ceramics, Photography and Abnormal Psych summer term. Ceramics was WAY fun, and photography was a breeze - it was a list of subjects to shoot (a thin blue line, a yellow circle, a reflection of yourself, etc). The abnormal psych prof creeped me out, but that's a whole new post. I highly recommend ceramics. Do something fun and artistic that won't require a paper or reading.
