What is the hardest class you've taken so far?? - page 2

Me, I've only taken 2 classes so far so I can't say much. I want to know what all of you think the worst class is. I've heard alot of nursing students say anatomy and physiology and others say the... Read More

    Actually, I found the Nursing Classes themselves to be the hardest. The pre-requisites and support classes were a piece of cake compared to Nursing classes. The testing is so different compared to support classes and I was told that when I was in High School (oh so long ago), they didn't teach critical thinking skills then, and that's the nature of Nursing. I am passing, with two semester left in the program. Hopefully, my GPA from the support classes will keep my GPA in the 3.2 range. Sure deflated me when I started watching my 4.0 go down the tubes, haha. All in all, it's not the grade that will make you a good nurse, it's what you learn and get out of the program that will be the true "grade." Good luck to you all.

    OMG, just seeing that word Nomerclature sent chills down my spine. A&P was hard but I loved them so I didn't find them to be that difficult, because I really enjoyed the learning process. For me it was Chemistry. I hated the class, and found it to be so difficult. I had class twice a week, lab once a week, and was tutored twice a week, not to mention all the hairpulling time I spent on that stuff at home, and I still only managed to get a B+. My professor was also very difficult and hated nursing students, so he geared his class more toward the chemical engineer majors. Good luck to you.

    Honors Precalc, but I take A&P and Micro soon so I'm sure those will be killer too.

    My toughest class was raising 3 boys and a girl through puberty.

    I don't have to take chemistry or philosophy so I guess I lucked out. They are not required for our ADN program. I have to take all the nursing classes, Introductory psych (already did, loved it, got an A), developmental psych, sociology, intercultural communications, general human biology, english, a&p I and II, microbiology, and I think that's it. I also had to take a basic math course over the summer with my psych and it was the easiest class I've ever taken in my life I swear. I would have felt extrememly dumb if I would have gotten lower than an A. I think nursing school will be fun, I can't wait to start clinicals. I learn best through hands on training. Thanks for all the replies!!

    Ha ha! Re: Louie18's post...My toughest class isn't as bad but a close second. My youngest is nearly 2 years old. I'm getting him a T-shirt that says, "WARNING! I'm two!" It's hard to deal with temper tantrums when I want to join in on them.

    Seriously, I'm trying to define "tough". Tough as in 'lots of studying' or tough as in 'hard to understand'? I'm going to vote for Pharmacology -- definitely lots of time studying and lots of concentration to understand the methods of action on the meds.

    Algebra..I am not a math kind of girl.. thank goodness for D/H !! As far as nursing is concerned, I would guess the hardest so far has been the Adult/Child classes. Haven't gotten to Advanced Pharm yet...

    I agree with many of the others who said chemistry...... O-chem sucked big time!!

    I guess the hardest class is the one that we don't have any aptitude for, or we have very little. Some people are good in sciences, some others in languages or history,etc.
    Because I always enjoyed science, CHE, MAT or BIO seemed easy to me. I havent' taken any nursing courses yet. ENG was harder. Or probably not harder, just required more dedication.
