    I would also take the Chem first, it is a great foundation for the rest. My school will also not let you take Micro without Chem, so there must be a logical reason behind this.

    I would split some of those sciences up. 3 sciences in the fall semester is going to be A LOT of work as they all require a lab as well as classroom time. I would take one science each semester and exchange that for another class. Do you already have english comp I done? I would also get rid of the films class and american government and replace them with classes that would be helpful towards your nursing goal such as Human Growth and Development. That class is required by many programs anyway, so you would be getting it out of the way. Good luck

    The films and american goverment classes are both pre-reqs that I need to take. I am very tempted to just go ahead and take the micro class but I don't remember taking any chemestry in high school so I don't know. Chem and a previous bio class are pre-reqs to Micro so I am still trying to figure out if I should take it.

    Also time is an issue with me and the Chem class is all booked up this semester. Thats why I loaded up and so many of the eaiser classes cause it was all I could get. Maybe I will take the Micro class. I just want to be sure that I will be able to handle it. I know I can do anything I put my mind to and I can get a tutor if I really need it but the grade in that class has to be very good. I would really like to knock out a science if I could this semester. My counsler said I should go for it even though I don't have the pre-reqs for that particular class.

    You have a very hectic schedule; however, if you feel you can do it, then go for it! Since you said, your father is supportive of you. If it was me, I would not take A&P 2, chem and Micro in the same semester. Can you take Microbiology over the summer by itself?

    Could you switch chemistry and nutrition? I'm thinking if you were able to take chem during the summer (after pre-algebra so you have a better background for the subject) it will help with A&P, micro, and nutrition.

    Have you checked to make sure you can take A&P I, II and Microbiology without having a basic biology (like Bio 103) first??

    Have you made sure that the classes are usually offered during the semester you plan to take them?

    I know I had a plan when I started and didn't realize that Micro was not offered in the Summer semester--so I had to do a little catch up the next semester to stay in my time frame.:smackingf

    I know that you are very excited and rightfully so as starting college has a way of doing that---however---I would really like to caution you that --heavy loads can really be stressful without other outside interference (kids,work,spouse). And I can say from experience the first couple of semesters where wonderful---I was soooo excited --but school/studying 24/7 can get old fast--Just leave yourself some time to just enjoy life!!!

    But,you probally already knew that-- sounds like you are determined. You will do fine---Best wishes on your endevors.
