Jul 30, '09Joined: Jun '08; Posts: 77; Likes: 6I passing my lab with an A so far but I am so very bad in the lecture so I am going to take the lecture part over since I am not satisfied with my grade. Can anyone from MA refer a more microbiology class lecture to me or even a online school?

I feel a little sad, though, because what could have been and should have been an interesting class turned into a nightmare. I started out thinking our little drill sargeant teacher was just trying to give us a taste of nursing school boot camp and ended up thinking she had some major personal issues and needs some kind of help. I don't mind a teacher presenting challenging material and setting high standards for a class, I do want to get my money's worth for my classes, just hope the N program instructors aren't all somewhat unbalanced.

The labs are excellent. We are actually doing things and looking at stuff under the microscope. I am definitely a handwasher but I have not been to concerned about getting anything as we work in an aseptic atmospher. Three weeks left then A&P II and then I am done with my pre-reqs!
I plan to take microbiolgy this upcoming summer at MC. Who was your professor?
