Hello,

I'm trying to figure out the courses I should register for next term (Spring 2011) along with the pre-requirements for my next Nursing Course.

Anatomy and Physiology 2 (4 Credits) and Chemistry 2 (4 Credits) are the Pre-Reqs for [Nur 230 Clinical].

I have the following classes to choose from, which will be added on top of the two courses above.

1. Microbiology

2. Pathophysiology

I guess I basically want to know, which course is the less difficult one? Micro or Patho?

Would it be too difficult to take both A&P2 and either Patho or Micro at the same time?

If I were you, I'd take micro next term. Here's why: A&P tell you how the normal body works. Pathophysiology builds on physiology by explaining how the "abnormal" body works. You might be overwhelmed in patho if you take A&P at the same time, especially if the body systems are not covered in both classes in the same order. In addition, micro helps you understand bacteria and viruses which are a part of patho. So, if you take A&P and micro before patho, you'll have a good basis to do well in patho.

Thanks for the advice! And yes, after a little research, I came to the same conclusion also :) But it's comforting to have some reinforcement for the decision!

Thanks a lot!
