    Hooah, we are strict keto. Generally under 20 total carbs a day. Almost 3 years now, lost 90 lbs. my wife lost 160lbs. Keto for life!

    63K ABSN - Yes or No?

    That makes a huge difference. The added value of free rent and side money definitely changes the calculations, but I still proffer the faster route as economically superior.

    63K ABSN - Yes or No?

    Terrible advice. A 4 year BSN at $20,000 vs a 1 year ABSN at $63,000 is $132,000 in lost wages assuming $65,000 in RN salary. The ABSN wins hands down.

    Straighterline Anatomy & Physiology 1

    No, actually. They were generally broader concept questions that required a grasp on the overall material. The other quizzes and the reading required to properly answer them would provide more than sufficient broad knowledge to answer the questions. Your mileage may vary, as I’m generally a good test taker. Many of the questions were definitely covered in previous quizzes, but were presented in different or simpler terms. Some of he questions I had to rely on systems knowledge to eliminate erroneous answers when I didn’t know the specific name of a muscle in X group, etc. If you have previous experience in healthcare I’m sure you’ll do well. This is all new to me. I had only studied for the biology CLEP before all this, aside from knowledge I obtained from my own health problems and chronic illness of family members, etc. previous knowledge of Greek sure has proven handy. At least in my case, none of those "put the following in order" dreaded questions showed up.

    Prerequisites nursing

    Make sure the school you are targeting takes Straighterline. There are three in my region that do, so it was it a good option for me. It’s ace credit, not traditional ra college credit. if the schools you are going to target require regionally accredited classes (ra) the next best options are likely portage learning (if they take it, virtual labs,) followed by edukan which is actually just a group of community colleges in Kansas iirc, and lastly New Mexico junior college. They are likely the cheapest option aside from Straighterline, but lack the flexibility and self paced style of portage.

    Straighterline Anatomy & Physiology 1

    Pay attention to the tests I specified above were the most difficult. there’s no way around reading the material and getting quick at searching the ebook when they ask something obscurely difficult. As a pay per take provider they have a vested interest in people having to repeat the course.

    A&P 1 is finished, 90 overall. Super happy. Now to read for A&P 2 and finish it within the month, then start the labs / psych classes. Done: Chem, Stats, Microbio, A&P 1 Todo: A&P 2, A&P & Microbio lab(s), developmental and abnormal psych. Roughly 9 weeks in. I hope to have all prerequisites done in the next 7 weeks before our newest addition arrives.

    Straighterline Anatomy & Physiology 1

    Alright. I finished the final, I got a 77% on the test and a 90% in the class overall. I found the final significantly easier than the other tests and blasted through it in under 20 minutes without studying. My particular experience was a lot of basic Chemistry questions, with some tricky endocrinology and neurology related questions. There were only a handful of questions related to skin, hairs, muscle, bones, etc.

    How did your test go? I’m taking the final tonight or tomorrow. I got seriously burnt out and had to take a break.

    Does Trump have Covid?

    They had a lovely system of free bread and wine funded by endless conquest.

    Isn’t it despicable you have to fight so hard for a law that should be common sense? The wealthy get preferential private treatment and don’t care about the plebeians.

    Does Trump have Covid?

    If you believe there is a difference between the parties, you are not looking at the situation rationally. I’ll remind you that during the last election cycle we were offered a choice of two billionaires who have partied together in the hamptons and whose children were friends.

    Does Trump have Covid?

    I am a plebeian. Our politicians are oligarchs. My greatest desires to critique or praise their actions will not change the insignificance of my position in societal hierarchy. critiquing their actions seems like an exercise in futility.

    Dismissed, what now?

    Since you were 2 semesters from done I’d look for a school in it for the profit that is flexible with transfer credit. Get in and out of that door with your degree ASAP. Search far and wide. You can relocate to finish that goal.

    I feel so alone

    I can’t say that it’s healthy to approach all societal interactions that way, but it’s a helpful tool for your situation. Learning to get along with people who o don’t interest you is very helpful. Truthfully, I based my advice on how most people with antisocial personality disorders use conversation as a tool for their benefit.

    Dismissed, what now?

    Start looking for a school that will let you transfer in your previous work.
