    Unless you are pretty good with office software already I would suggest an Office course. Pretty easy class and it will save you a lot of time later if you know all the shortcuts and tricks when you are typing up papers and care plans. Another suggestion mentioned earlier is a written and/or verbal communication course. Most nursing schools seem to require those at some point so get one or the other out of the way while you can. Best of luck to you this fall!

    Quote from PDXSammy
    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.
    Will you start a thread about this creepy Abnormal Psych professor? I am very curious. I may sound ignorant but, what is "Abnormal Psychology" involving. I kind of have a guess, but do tell!!

    If your school offers one, I would take a course in Cultural Diversity. I had a course like that and it was a lot of fun. Some of it was on line, some in class time, and some actually doing a community project - I worked a couple of hours a week at the Boys and Girls Club. You learn a lot about the people and cultures in your community and it is helpful information you may be able to use in your practice. Good luck!

    I took welding and scuba one semester to help me unwind from school. I didnt care what I got in either class and they were simply just for fun. And I ultimately got certified for scuba and can now burn some steel together

    I vote you take a pottery class. It was my favorite class! There's almost no reading, no homework and throwing clay is very theraputic - relaxing. I still have the pieces I made.

    My sugeestion would to be take a typing class if you do not type. It is an easy A plus it will give you some skills.
