You are reading page 2 of HARDEST classes?
for me, it would be a anatomy & physiology ... i also have labs, so adds to be school workload ...
pre-nursing classes: Anatomy
nursing classes: Basic Nursing skills lab... thank god i am done with this class already!! =)
I feel the exact same way as you guys. During core I thought I wouldn't make it !! Now that I'm in my first out of 4 semesters in the nursing program...I would rather take A&P I-II over again, three times maybe. NOTHING compares to the work load in any nursing program. But it's so worth it. Hang in there guys......two years from now I hope to be saying that the Nursing program was too easy !!!!!!!!
I do great on plain old straightforward knowledge material. I am breezing through a&p1 but our nursing tests are getting a lot more difficult. It's one thing to know the material but quite another to use that knowledge to answer critical thinking questions. My whole class is a bit gobsmacked right now but we are muddling through. I still have my solid B so I am not worried. Don't think I will make up to an A though as we use an 8pt grading scale.
I have to say A&P. I am currently a A Pre-Nursing major and I find A&P to be very interesting but hard. I absolutely bombed on my first lab test =(. I studied to, still trying to figure out what I did wrong.
I think it depends on how you look at it... my pathophysiology had fairly challenging content and the teacher was challenging but fair. My pharmacology wasn't incredibly hard content-wise (alot of memorization) but the teacher was challenging and her style was not the kind that I do the best in so it was hard in that way. My fundamentals class hasn't been that hard but since I'm part time & I've had alot of other stuff already that my fellow classmates haven't (assessment, pharm, etc..)... that probably makes it alot easier for me.

Gosh, maybe I'm weird, but I'm finding A&P MUCH harder than Fundamentals of Nursing.
klone, I don't think you're weird, the only reason I wrote that is b/c in our fundamentals class sometimes the instructors bring up things that I know the new students haven't had. If I were in there as a new student last year before assessment, pharm, patho, etc... I would have been like 'what the ____ is that"? It's a new class, actually not called 'fundamentals', but that's sort of what it is. Like in post conference at clinicals, the instructor will ask what a certain drug does, and they won't even have pharm until next semester - we don't pass drugs or anything right now.
But that's why this whole question/thread just varies so much, according to the individual's professors & program, KWIM?

I have not has micro yet and I think that will be the hardest for me. I am probally jinxing(SP?) myself but so far the nursing program has been alot eaiser for me than the pre reqs.:chair: But I am only in the first semester and I'm just wating for the bottom to fall out!
I'm taking Micro right now and I feel as if I am drowning. I'm passing but barely. I loved all my pre-req's (even A&P...imagine that!) I think the nursing classes are harder still though. I just haven't put as much into Micro as I have all the rest of my classes. I think I am burnt out!
