Summer semester

Any one taking summer classes? If so, which ones? How do you plan to ace them? I would love to hear what classes those who are already into their program are taking.

I have to take intro to philosophy & one chemistry class for my BSN program in the fall. Definitely boring classes but I plan on studying/getting work done during the week so I can have weekends free.

Chemistry might seem boring, but look up a bit on acid/base balance in the body and you will find a great link to your future practice :)

Yes, I am taking summer courses. I am taking 13 credit hours total. I'm taking: mental health theory & clinical, statistics, and population health 3. I am a little nervous. I've never taken summer classes before, so we'll see how heavy the workload is with a shortened semester!

@Tait, true. And it's an allied health chemistry so I know it will be helpful.

@Skips, holy cow! You are motivated! I am sure you will pass with flying colors.

I get to start my nursing program in June! I will be taking Concepts in Nursing and Art and Science of Nursing I. Not sure how the workload will be, but I won't be working so should have time to study, study, study!

My program requires a summer semester. It's Adult Health 1. I had all my pre reqs done before I applied, so I could concentrate only on nursing courses. I hear its intense. About four months worth of material and clinicals in 8 weeks.

I'm taking a humanity this summer, but I took micro over the summer and got an A. It's doable and I think it was actually kind of nice because I got into the "mode" and it was over quick, instead of dragging it out across a full semester.

I'm starting my 12 month accelerated program next month :o and taking..

  • NURS 250: Clinical concepts in Nursing Practice (3)
  • NURS 249: Health Promotion Across the Lifespan: (2)
  • NURS 370: Health Assessment (3)
  • NURS 252: Foundation for Nursing Care (3)
  • NURS 360: Pathophysiology (4)
  • NURS 330: Pharmacotherapeutics for Nursing Care (3)

GOOD LUCK! I can't imagine that. But in a little over a year you'll be done!

I just finished fundamental of nursing and health assessment and my BSN program is trimester which means summers included so ill be taking Adult Concept 1 which is Med-Surg 1 and Pharm, that's 3 days of classes and 2 12hr clinical days a week, this summer! My summer is gone but all for my goal so I ain't mad.

I'm taking micro, honors micro, and a health class. I can't wait for the relaxation of only 3 classes after 2 semesters of nursing program.

I'm taking Pathophysiology, Cultural Diversity, and Ethics. They are all considered "pre-term" for my ABSN program. CD and Ethics are online, so I'm hoping they won't be too bad. Patho kind of scares me.

Im probably gonna have to (re) take Medical Math since it didnt transfer in from the CC I did it to the CC Im looking at

I'll be retaking micro biology and a/p 1 both with labs this summer. I made b's in them the first go around and they are the only classes stopping me from having a 4.0 science GPA for grad school admissions

I am taking Med-surg over 10 weeks starting on monday.
