I realize that we're all in nursing school, and in order to be successful, we need to really know our stuff; but I am feeling really overwhelmed. The classes in the nursing department are set up so each class is one semester long, this helps get the students through the program faster. I don't know about everyone else, but I really wish that some of the classes i've taken were a full year long. I could have benefitted more from a whole year of Patho, rather than a years-worth of information crammed into a semester! I would gladly have sacrificed being in the program an extra year or two to be able to have some classes that were two semesters.
