I was told by my academic counselor that there have been some excellent nurses that have made 'C's in all there sciences but were wonderful nurses. He also went on to say that he knows of nurses that were straight 'A' students that were not so great. By the way this A&P1 class I am taking is only 6 weeks long. Just thought I would add that little tid bit. Please keep me in your prayers as I will be entering my last week on Monday. I have a Lecture test and practical on Thursday and final exam on Friday.

I personally love summer courses. Yes they are a lot more work,
but they go by quickly. The key is you MUST work very hard and study EVERYDAY. Study the days lecture as soon as you can after class, rewrite your notes everyday, and read all assigned chapters. I have taken anatomy, cell bio and currently physics in the summer and if you are willing to put in the work it will pay off.
But good advice earlier, drop the class asap and retake in the future. I have learned thatfrom college I have learned how to learn Classes I would never have been able to do as a freshmen I can do easily now

I've got an "A" so far, but our unit test on the skeletal and muscular system is this Tuesday, so I've spent most of my weekend studying. And I've got a nasty summer cold. But I just keep my nose in the books, and keeping pulling out my schedule that shows what I need to have accomplished by December in order to apply to the program, and know I CAN do this! I've waited a long time to get here, and I'm going to do whatever I have to do to fulfill my dream of being a nurse. It also helps that my husband and kids are very supportive of me!
You can do this! Don't loose sight of your dream....

I have a C but am taking other classes too, so I have to put the math on the back burner to get the other classes done.
