The nursing school application opened this morning for the Spring 2013 semester. I won’t be applying anytime soon (probably not until right before or right after I take the TEAS-V) but it’s nice to know that it’s there and just waiting for me. Eek!
I took my microbiology lab final yesterday, and I must say I walked out of there feeling pretty dang confident that I did well. YAY!! I was pretty stressed leading up to it, considering that it was comprehensive and a 110 question, fill-in-the-blank only test. But I was calm throughout the test and I felt like the answers were coming very well…so, we’ll see. I have a feeling I made an A – and even if I made a B, I would still get an overall A in the class. I’m now done with microbiology lab! And so excited because I only have a week and a half of school until summer!
I registered for my last non-nursing semester this past week, and achieved a pretty satisfying schedule. I’m not so sure that I’m going to enjoy all the classes; I feel like I’m just doing them because they’re needed for my degree and I have to get them done and out of the way before nursing school.
My schedule is as follows:
Composition II: M&W at 8am-9:20am
Intro to Philosophy: M&W at 11am-12:20pm
Computer Science: M&W at 1pm-2:20pm
Pathophysiology: T&TH at 9:30am-11:20am
Gender and Social Change (Women’s Studies): Internet Instruction
The only class I’m excited about is pathophysiology, because it’s an actual nursing class that we’re allowed to take early. It’s the only one that we’re allowed to take before acceptance and we’re strongly advised to do so to make our first nursing school semester less stressful. I’m taking it now because I’m almost positive that I’ll be accepted, but If I were less sure then I’d probably wait, because this class doesn’t transfer to other schools. So if I were to apply to the other nursing schools in the area, such as TCU, UTA, Baylor Dallas, then I would’ve taken a class that I couldn’t transfer over, and I’d have to take patho all over again. So here’s to hoping I’m accepted for TWU’s nursing program in the spring!
