So I have to take micro over the summer to keep on track with when I want to apply to the adn program. Its an 8 week course. I took two units worth of micro this spring before I had to drop. Anyway with financial aid I have to add two more credit hours. I know micro is busy work. Would nutrition be an OK class to take? Obviously I want A's in both classes. My options are nutrition or US government or Tx government. Oh and I've finished A&P and have taken a basic biology course, so would that make nutrition easier? Thanks in advance!

Nutrition I didnt think was very hard especially if you have already taken biology and other science classes. I took it 6 years ago and did okay but I am taking it over the summer to get a better grade since I didnt try very hard back then. I am taking it this summer with stats, us history and medical terminology. I am finishing micro right now and have an A. For me micro was easier, way easier than A&P so I dont think you would have any problem taking both of them. I took A&P2 along with micro and did not have an issue.

I just took Microbiology and A&P 2 at the same time and got As in both. Nutrition has a lot about the digestive system, so it should be fairly simple if you've taken A&P 1&2 already

This probably isn't going to be much help but I took nutrition online in the summer and it was the easiest thing I've ever taken. My professor was super lax and had us keep a journal of what we ate. We also had tests weekly but they were only 10 questions each. Try rate my professor and see if you can get a good professor.

Nutrition was probably one of the easiest GE classes I ever took, but I did enjoy the class and it was a huge eye opener. Anyway, that's another story haha. You should be fine with both Nutrition and Microbiology. You might even be able to handle a 3rd class. I didn't think Microbio was hard either on it's own either, just as long as you're not gonna be taking another other lab classes in addition to those 2.
