Well, at our school, our first quarter involves core and health science classes. The second quarter involves nursing fundamentals and the health science classes we haven't taken yet. There are some prereqs for a couple of the health science courses, so those are the ones taking with nursing fundamentals.

Well, I was in another medical major prior, so I have already taken:

English 101

Math 101

Psychology 101

Introduction to Computers

Medical Terminology

Anatomy and Physiology

I have to retake A&P due to taking it too long ago. I already retook Med Term.

This quarter begins in 2.5 weeks. I will be taking:


Diet and Nutrition Therapy

Medical Calculation

Introduction to Health Care (have to get first aid/cpr certified by midterm)

The next quarter all I will have is Nursing Fundamentals. We will start clinicals then. It is a 10 hour course and I have nothing else available to take with it. I might retake Intro to Computers for a full load and an easy A since we cannot take anything not listed for our major.

I'd have to go get my handbook to tell you exactly what is after that.

October 1, 2008 will be one year in school! I'll graduate the end of February, 2009. I can't believe it's been a year already, it has gone by so fast! Just starting term 3, our last term, we'll start clinicals soon in a hospital instead of LTC, can't wait to experience that! Good luck to everybody!
