My Anatomy lab has gone from 25 students (completely full) to 14. People dropped like flies the first two or three weeks and then there was a lull...now people are disappearing and never returning again. I wonder what those people who have dropped recently plan to do. We are way past the "drop without a W" point. Both of the nursing programs in my area look at how many W's you have in core sciences as well as how many times you repeat a core science. It's part of the selection criteria. What am I doing?!? I don't have time to wonder and worry about people I don't really know...how sad is that?
Anatomy is kicking my butt! This class is the hardest class I have ever taken. I don't understand why it has to be this hard...I really don't. I don't understand why I have to be able to look at a slice of a brain (prosection) and be able to identify the corpus collasum, intermediate mass, the basal nuclei as well as dozens of other structures! Seriously...how exactly will I be using that as a nurse? I am so ready for this semester to be done.
