i'm 43 and still have a lot to go. we can do it!!! i noticed that some of you have a class that meets only once a week. what's up with that? i think i would fall behind if i had pharm. only monday's. is that how it is in most nursing schools?
i think you would have to consider the length in time is spent in that one particular class, which includes a lecture and lab component. in my case, pharmacology is only 1 credit hour and it last for three hours each tuesday, so only once weekly is required and since this is the case, one should keep up because you will have time to study ahead and be abreast for the next week or so one would think.

Jul 26, '02Occupation: teacher switching to nursing Joined: Jun '02; Posts: 118This will be my first year of a 2 yr. ADN/diploma program. Luckily I have completed some of the required courses already. While the school recommends that a prospective student get some courses out of the way, and that it certainly helps your case when applying, it is not necessary to complete all of them. So, my schedule is this:
Monday-A & P lecture 9-9:50 and Lab from 12:30-3:20
Tuesday-7-3 Nursing 120 Foundations
Wednesday-A& P lecture 9-9:50
Thursday-7-3 Nursing 120 Foundations
Friday-A& P lecture 9-9:50
The first semester nursing begins with community health fairs and LTC facilities.
Jul 26, '02Occupation: Patient Safety Specialist Specialty: 13 year(s) of experience in Neuroscience ICU, CNRN, SCRN ; From: FL, US ; Joined: Feb '02; Posts: 183; Likes: 8I'm trying to get as many of my prereqs done by year end so I can apply for the nursing program that begins May 2003...I'm taking College Algebra (3 cr hrs), Gen'l Psych (3 cr hrs), which is an 8 wk "fast-track" Saturday class (from 7 Sept thru 26 Oct), and then A & P II (lecture & lab) for the 2nd 8 wks on Tues/Thur (4 cr hrs). The Algebra and A & P II classes are evening classes, because I'm still working full-time until I'm accepted to the program. I plan on taking Microbiology and Sociology in the spring, so the only non-nursing class I have left to take in order to graduate is a Humanties class, which I'll probably take on-line.
I know its alot to handle, especially while still working full time, but I have a 4.0 GPA so far, and I do love school, so I know I can do this...I am very focused on my goal!

Jul 27, '02Occupation: Student Joined: Jul '02; Posts: 726Hi there everyone!!!
I will be starting my second semester in the fall. I decided to get all of my prereqs and basic classes out of the way first before I apply for the nursing program. I work full time( for bills and the Walmart Addiction) :-) so I am taking all night classes. Luckily I have an amazing boss who give me the hours I want so I can go to school. She actually told me she was proud the other day sniff sniff......... made me cry. I am taking -
Algebra M 6:30-9:30
Speech T 6:30-9:30
A&P 1 Lab W 4:00-5:20
A& P Lecture W 6:30-9:25
I am a little scared , but it feels really good to keep hearing people say how proud they are . I have to say I'm pretty proud myself. HEHE Hidi74 Future RN YEA!!!!!!!!!

Jul 30, '02Joined: Jul '02; Posts: 93Hi all. This is my first post and I am "another" non-traditional student. I started college last year at age 38. Of course I had to take pre-algebra classes, but did manage to take my English Comp. class. I made A's in all three classes and this really encouraged me. It hit me this summer how much I enjoyed school in the fall and spring and also I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I "grew" up - a nurse!! I have 2 teenagers who are very encouraging and a husband who isn't so encouraging (can we say "selfish") ANYWAY - I start back at the community college August 19 and my schedule looks like this - Tues/Thurs 8:00AM Principles of Psychology, Tues 5:45 - 10:00PM Chemistry I and Lab, Thurs 5:45 - 7:00PM Chemistry I, Saturday 8:00 - Accounting (to satisfy my boss) and 11:50 - College Algebra. I do work full time, but boss is retired and only comes in to the office for a couple of hours 2-3 times a week - so I have plenty of time to study. I haven't told him about me going into Nursing yet and won't until I'm officially accepted after Pre-Reqs are done.
Good luck to all!
