    A & P nightmare

    Wow! Sorry you are having such a hard time. A&P is challenging, but give it a chance, once you get the hang of it, it can be fascinating stuff. I would suggest doing a search using the search engine Metacrawler. Just go to "www.metacrawler.com". I found great tutor pages for chemistry that way. If the lab is giving you trouble, go to your lab partners, and use them as a source for help. I always like to team up with people who are serious about the class. You should use them, and of course, your professor to find out what the most important things are to focus on while studying. Flash cards and lots of repetition are good for this type of class. There is so much information to learn, it's like a whole new language. A study strategy that seems to work is to get an overall view of the area of the body you are studying, and get that down. Chapter summaries are great for that. Secondly, break it into smaller parts. Hope this helps, hang in there and best of luck! ------------------ "Obstacles are those frightening things you see when you take your eyes off the goal."-Hannah Moore

    A & P

    I am finishing A&P II this semester, it was a lot of work. I think a good idea is to make good note cards, get a hole punch and put a hole through the corner of them, and clip them with a silver ring (keyholder). You can take them with you and read them at anytime, read them over and over until you are ready to burn those cards! The other people are right, it is a lot of memory work. Good Luck, Monika

    Nurses from other occupations

    I just wanted to chime in and say that I too have decided on a career change. I have always been in a "helping" profession, but I decided that my skills and interests would be most helpful as a nurse practitioner. My background is in psychology and anthropology. ------------------ "Obstacles are those frightening things you see when you take your eyes off the goal."-Hannah Moore

    LVN programs in Dallas, Texas?

    Hi, I'm not from Dallas ,so unfortunately, I don't know of any schools in that area. I'm from Houston and I know of a website called "Texas Two Year Colleges" that may be of help to you. You can look up the colleges that are in Dallas and go from there. Here's the address: http://www.tccta.org/colleges.html Good Luck!

    Go for a nursing degree?

    Ok, Well I am a postgrad student taking my last few prereqs before nursing school. I have taken both Chem I & II, both courses were for science majors. I would agree that you should have algebra under your belt before taking chemistry. Chemistry is very quantitative in nature and a LOT of the work we did was solving problems, problems, and more problems. Here is the thing though, in TX, the nursing programs usually allow you take chemistry courses geared towards non-science majors or for people who are going into allied health careers. I guess you could say that compared to chemistry courses for science majors or for those going into medical school, it is supposed to be easier. You REALLY need to go speak, in person, to your future chem professors and get their opinion on it. If they really stress algebra as important, then you want to be comfortable in it before class starts. You do not want to have to learn chem and math at the same time! Good luck and study hard, don't let a fear of numbers erase your dreams.
