Marilyn,

I'm taking stats right now, if the same teacher I have is teaching it next semester you should definitely take her class. She makes it so easy and simplifies it so much. Have you enrolled for it yet?

No I havent enrolled for it yet. What is her name and the section number? Thanks Cynthiann! How are you doing anyways? I thought in order to take Statistics you had to have College Algebra or are you taking Psych Statistics? I think they both will transfer?

Actually, I am past the pre-reqs and am into my major classes. I don't look at it as a challenge or overwhelming. I go into the classes knowing that I will pass. I don't feel bad when I don't get an A in a specific course, because I know I did my best. "As much as my tuition is, you best believe I am at every lecture, lab, clinical that is required". Positive affirmation is everything.

I am considering taking 20 credits in the fall (I know I am crazy but 20 credits are charged the same at 12 credits at my school so why not!)

You will do just fine. Just remember to absorb all that you can in lecture. Review points that you don't completely understand when you get home, remembering to study for the lecture prior to lecture, reviewing the material prior to an exam and you will do fine!

Yes, I'm taking psych stats. Any stats class will transfer to OU. The only pre-req to the class is intro psych, have you taken that yet? Her name is Pratt, I know she's not listed in the printed schedule. She usually doesn't know exactly what class she will teach until later on, I know since I had her last semester for intro psych. I'm also taking her for dev. psych. I'm making an A in both classes. As soon as I find out what she's teaching or if she's even teaching stats again (this is her first semester teaching it) I'll definitely let you know.

By the way, did you ever go to that OSU open house?

Cythia thanks so much. I had been wondering about the Psych Stats, I will definalty be taking that then. I looked on the back of my OU Nursing transfer thingy and it shows Pscyh Stats is approved! Yes I have taken Psychology. Developmental Pschology you will like, I am taking that right now with Kind online and it is SO EASY! Plus its a lot of stuff you already know (especially if you have been preg and have kids like we have).

No I didn't go to the OSU open house but a few of my friends did and they plan to apply there for this next semester. You have to take some test to get in but I heard it was not that hard. I guess the lady told them they dont have to deny many student...they accept 67 per semester!

Good luck with your classes and keep in touch!

You really need to attend orientation full time, but after that -- you should be able to find part-time work. I completed some BSN pre-reqs while I was going for my ADN. Worked for one year to really get "settled in" then grouped my part-time hours together, used vacation time, and finished up my BSN in one year or so -- took alot of spring/summer/intersession nursing classes. Worked great for me.

I just graduated from 4yrs business course here in the philippines and I'll be enrolling in a BSN in one of a medical university here. But I'm laso too scared of the subject that I'll be taking. I already have the subjects and that includes: ZOOLOGY, GEN. INORGANIC CHEM, NUTRITION AND DIETETICCS STRATEGIES OF HEALTHCARE. Gosh I'm afraid I'm really not good in memmorization!

:rolleyes: Is there anyone of you here who eperience the same thing? I hope I can make it into nursing!
