I will be starting the program with you in 09. I too, have started taking my core classes. doing a couple each quarter to get them out of the way. way to much busy work to be dealing with that during the program. thanks for the advice regarding advanced physiology. I will keep that in mind when i sign up for that class. what classes are you taking now. feel free to PM me if you wish.

I've heard from an extremely reliable source (past Drexel CRNA student) that the instructor (Dr Kennedy) for NURS520 (Advanced Physiology) is brutal -- not only does he just stand in the front of the class and read from the book, but he does not entertain any questions and intentially tries to undermine students on his tests (that by the way, the majority of the class fail)!!!! I'm taking this class this spring, but have been studying (I bough the book and have a syllabus) since last October.
I am at Drexel now (class of 09). The instructor is an acquired taste, I admit. But now there is a new professor who is the exact opposite. He is very nice and helpful and actually teaches! What a concept. I am not sure who'll be teaching the first of the four pathophys courses. I am taking my last pathophys course this quarter. I am so happy that it'll be over.
What courses are you taking right now? Knock off as many courses as you can, it'll help laterLast edit by sirI on Jan 30, '08 : Reason: please do not post names of instructors, profs, etc.
