About two years ago, I decided to go to nursing school. "No problem," I thought. "I can knock out these pre-requisite courses in a couple of semesters." How naive I was! I am 29 years old and not as academically spry as I was as a first-time college student 11 years ago. Sciences do not come easily to me, so I was nervous about taking such a heavy load of biology. Pre-requisites for nursing school meant that I had to actively re-learn chemistry, I would be overwhelmed by microbiology, and I would be awed by physiology. Two years and six semesters later, I am heading to nursing school at the end of the month. My experience with ACC has been wonderful. My professors have been unbelievable very encouraging, supportive, and understanding. Even though sciences are not my strong suit, the professors I have had have gently pushed me academically to really learn these difficult concepts. I am unspeakably grateful for the high quality education I have received at ACC. It may have taken me slightly longer than I thought it would, but I have learned more about the human body in two years at ACC than I ever thought possible. I am proud that to have been a student at ACC.
