New students...what is your fall schedule like? - page 2
I was just wondering what everyone's fall schedule is like. In order to be accepted into our ADN program you need to have A&P I & II done, math, english and philosophy already done before you even... Read More
Jul 1, '02Occupation: RN Joined: Jan '02; Posts: 1,732; Likes: 1This fall i will be taking A&P 1, Health & Nutrition(online course) and nursing class. I have my schedule but I am not sure how it works. I think I have a nursing class Monday and wed and a nursing lab class on Tues. Then I have clinical thurs and Fridays. The clinical is from 8:00am until 12:00.
Jul 1, '02Joined: May '02; Posts: 232; Likes: 5I'll be taking: Health Science I (which is all the A&P, Chem, Micro and Physics a nurse will need all rolled into one action-packed course); pharmacology; and med terminology. Translates to an hour of class M,W,F; a 3-hour lab on T, a Mon night class and a Sat am class... In the spring, all I'll have to take is Health Science II, then in May I'll start the nursing curriculum. By then, all my nonnursing courses will be complete (or transfered from my previous bachelor's), so I'll just be taking 2-3 nursing classes/semester

All I have left to take is Microbiology and a Clinical Math course, so it shouldn't be too bad. I figure I need to rest up and get ready to study my butt off!
My Micro meets Tues and Thurs and I've decided to take the math class online so I ought to have some free time. That's good since I'll then have two years of no free time. Ugh!

Jul 2, '02Joined: Feb '02; Posts: 677; Likes: 35This fall I have my first Nursing class. My school calls it Holistic Nursing from 8am to 12pm on mondays, Tuesdays I have a skills class from 8a-12:30p and Wednesdays I have my clinical from 7a-1p at a nearby hospital.
I'm also taking Pathophysiology on-line.
Whee! I'm so excited -- this fall I start what I came here for!:hatparty:
Ann- WOW hon, big load! But, if you set yourself to it, you can do it!

Jul 2, '02Occupation: Internet Resource Center in Library Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 98; Likes: 1Fall Semester is Nursing 101--the basic stuff; We are required to take a separate Nutrition class, so I plan to go ahead and take that as well. The Nursing 101 is a nine hour class, meeting on Monday and Wednesday with a lab on Mondays. I'm not sure how they are going to do the clinicals for this, though. The Nutrition class is totally web based.
Of course, the nursing class is four days per week for the first five weeks in preparation for clinical rotation. By the way this is an ADN program.
Thank goodness all of my prereqs are finished.
Good luck to all who are just starting the prereq road, and to those of us who are actually about to start the clinical classes.

I'm incredibly (I mean super)NEW. I meet with the Nursing Couselor tommorrow. I of course have to start with pre-reqs this Fall, like chem, and biology. Anyway, I have a question what's A&P? I feel like I should know this, but I figured it was better to ask than to keep wondering. I guess I have a lot to learn..
Jul 2, '02Occupation: Student Joined: May '02; Posts: 32For the fall, let's see I know it's an obsene amount of hours, something like 18.
Basic nursing skills 4hours
Med-Surg 1 3hours
Med-Surg 1 Lab 1hour
Med-surg 2 3hours
Med-Surg 2 Lab 1hour
Clinical Med Surg 1 2hours
Clinical Med Surg 2 2hours
Pharmacology 2 hours
Class begins at 7:00AM, clinicals start at either 5:30 or 6:30 depending which facility we're at that day. We go M-F. Wish me luck, it's a ton of hours!!

a&p is a biology/science course which consists or may consist of two seperate classes, one for each semester. some schools have just an anatomy class and a physiology class and some have a combined class and both have a lab where you get or should get to have "hands on" experience and some schools require you to take
principles of biology i before taking a&p.
a&p covers the structure and function of the human body.
i hope this helps.

It just dawned on me... Anatomy and Physiology... they are two seperate classes at the school I'm going to attend. And, they each have a lab. I know each of those have their own pre req. So, it's getting clearer (is that a word?) to me.

I thought I had already posted on this thread but I can't find it.
This fall I will be working on pre-reqs also.
A&P I with lab
I still need my histories, abnormal psyc., another government, statistics, chemistry, micro. I would like to take Pharm and Patho before I start nursing school but I'm not sure how to go about it.Last edit by Debbie5 on Jul 23, '02
