Human Development and A&P II in a semester is this EXTREME???

Hi everyone I'm considering taking theses two courses A&P II & Human Development at once in a semester but I would like your input on the course load for those who has already taken the classes and know what is expected. Thank you for giving me some clarity.

Thanks Sali22, any info on what to expect in each class besides what's already understood study time and determination.

You'll be fine. I don't think human development is "easy" but I didn't find it to be so difficult I was stressed. You have a good balance as long as you stay on top of things.

If you've had a general psychology course before, you will be fine. For A&P2 make tables for the hormones and different organs (where they are located, target, effect, action, functions, structures).

I worked 50 hours week and took Human Development and Microbiology together. Human Development was really easy and Micro wasn't too challenging. I imagine it wouldn't be much different.

I appreciate every response. @ EMT 89 I will definitely use the diagram for the endocrine system. Thanks!

I am currently taking Human Growth and Development for summer along with a prep-math, and Humanities class. It has been super easy and I have online courses which means more work than a normal classroom. Good luck and you will be fine!

I think you'd have to stretch it really far to make 6-7 hours of anything at the undergrad level 'Extreme.' Maybe if you worked two jobs and was a single parent?

I'm with Miki on this this. Unless you have some other commitments not otherwise stated, you'd be left with over 100 hours a week that could be used for studying. I think any two classes could be mastered with that kind of time.

Thanks for responding , Miiki are you speaking from experience as a prenursing student or just having idea of undergraduate studies?

Thanks Stephalump, any input on the actual class?

Mmmm, A&P is obviously time-consuming, but I don't remember being at all challenged by Human Development. Just simple read and regurgitate kind of thing. Very, very basic lower level psych. Totally doable.

Thanks Izonme, I appreciate your words of encouragement. Being this is my first experience with those classes I wanted to make sure I was pairing them correctly for successful completion!

Stephalump thanks again!

I took Human Growth and Development last summer and it was not all that challenging. I am currently in A&P II and it is taking a lot of study time. But, if it is a regular semester, I do not think that it would be too much. The last few chapters will actually overlap a bit.

I found APII easier than API and Human Dev was cake... But in the end it depends most on your school and teachers. I found creating and redrawing flow charts of which hormone goes where and causes what (which then goes somewhere else and does something else that then feeds back....) to be the best way to learn. And google image searches are great for histology.

I say go for it!:)

I definitely think you should go for it. Nursing school is going to be extremely challenging so there is no reason why you shouldn't start pushing yourself now. That way you hopefully won't be too shocked once you get there. Good luck. =)
