I am currently taking microbiology and physiology and received a a low C on my first physiology exam. Since the information is increasing in difficulty, I am really doubting that I will be able to receive a decent grade in the course. I am in the process of applying to ABSN programs and wondering how poorly it would reflect if I received a W and then retook it in the winter. I have already submitted applications for some schools and I am not sure how they would react if I notified them that I would be dropping physiology and retaking it in the winter. I currently have A's in all my other prereqs, and these are my last 2. Most programs I am applying to require at least a B in all science prereqs. My question is: should I strive for a B now or receive a W and strive for an A during winter? Physiology would be my only course during the winter session, so I would be able to dedicate all my time to it. Since the course is only 5 weeks, I probably will not be working either. I feel like I am losing too much sleep with working 30-40 hours per week and having to study. I know other students have kids and family to take care of etc, so big kudos for you guys who are able to keep it up!
