Ok, signing up for next semester and need to choose between MicroBio and A&PI. Some others have said to take A&PI before Micro because it will help with Micro, but I'm just not sure.
I also would like to squeeze in a hybrid Dev. Psch class. This past semester was my first year back in 13yrs!!! Very hard, I really don't even know if I'm going to get into the next science classes with my "barely" C in Bio(studying my booty off for finals!). But anyway, insight and direction is greatly appreciated
. Also am I taking on too much wanting to add a Psch class to Science???

As someone who has been an RN for 30+ years and been in nursing school twice: once for my ADN to get my RN license and then went back for my BSN and was required to re-take all my science classes again, I think I'm pretty confident in telling you that neither one has much to do with the other. Micro is related more to biology than it is to anatomy! Micro-B I O L O G Y. It has to do with the study of bacteria, yeasts and viruses that live in our world, not just our bodies. Don't believe everything you hear, or at least submit these people to some scrutinizing questions of "why", "why" and more "why". If your college catalog doesn't require anatomy as a pre-requisite for this course, then it doesn't make sense that you need to be taking anatomy first.
After I posted I thought I should Edit this and add this bit of wisdom. . .you are wanting to be a nurse. Nurses make rational judgments every day of their working lives. That is what nursing school teaches and prepares you to do whether you are aware of this right now or not. Rational judgments are based upon the use of good information from reliable sources. Listening to some student that you may or may not know very well is not being very rational or responsible. Use your college resources such as counselors and the printed materials such as the college catalog. That's why someone went to the trouble of producing them. Gossip and hearsay will get you into more trouble than you can possibly imagine. Early in your nursing classes you will get a lecture on the importance of objective versus subjective data collection. Listening to the advice of people without verifying their statements is relying on subjective data and this doesn't hold much validity in the scientific world of which you are about to enter as a nurse.
