    Oops...I stand corrected. I asked mom and it was 8 weeks instead of four. Let's just say it was STILL intense. She studied everynight all night long once she got home from work.

    Ah, the wonderful world of patho. I took it a couple of years ago in my BSN program. It actually wasn't too bad because many of the disease processes we covered correlated to what we were studying in our Med-Surg class. This was really helpful. Patho can be difficult because you study all the processes down to the cellular level. With plenty of studying you'll do fine. Let us know how it goes.
