I think that it will go nicely with my biology class (introduction to ecology, evolution and biodiversity) and my science major chem class I can't wait....I can't wait for THIS quarter to be over either....Microbiology is killing me

I took a bunch of women's studies classes while working on my BA. NONE were taught by men. In fact, I think that there were only two guys who took one of the classes, and none in the others. The guys who took the class were these frat boy types (not that I'm judging, my brothers in a frat) and we all suspected that they were there to somehow gain insight into the mysterious world of women, and be better able to pick up on girls :LOL

mommy2julia- I'm sure you'll be able to work out a pumping schedule and everything will be fine with your supply. Your DD will probably want to drink a lot in the evening when you're home though. Do you co-sleep?

I think I'll finally be able to finish my BA degree this year. I'm going to an online school that a friend got me interested in, getting a degree in history. Since the baby's coming during the winter term, I'm taking that one off just to make sure I don't overdo it, but I'll start back up again for spring. I should be able to finish, but I'm still waiting on my transcripts to be evaluated. 3 schools over the past 7 years with time taken off between, and 3 different majors! I think it's time to finally finish. :LOL

After I finish my BA though, I really want to get my master's degree but I have no idea where. I think my current plan is to finish the BA, and take some time as a SAHM 'til the little one is in school, and then I can start thinking about taking some classes again. Plus, we might be moving in a couple of years, and I think I'd really like to stay at the same school the entire time if possible.

Anyone else doing classes exclusively online? Is it rough taking care of a child and trying to get your homework done?

Freakyspice-
Yep we cosleep, so I guess that is where a ton of nursing will be going on. I just picked up nursing mother, working mother and in the book she says that prolactin levels are at its highest at 1-5am. Thank God my baby doesnt sleep thru the night and i"msure that will keep my supply up.. I will figure out how much she is eating too.. B/C right now.. I have no idea what I should bring into daycare ..

How many of you mamas had an 8 month old in daycare while drinking Expressed Breastmilk with some solids?? How much will she be drinking..? 12ozs, 16ozs?????? What did you do if you ran out of milk? I guess I"ll post this in working mothers too..

Lots of school offer classes online...I my online classes throughwaol I enroll through my college but there are people from all over....maybe you have something like that too. I know that there is no problem with accredidation as it is through a regular college.

Maya -

I'm going through Thomas Edison State College, which is a totally online school but fully accredited, I've read. ( http://www.tesc.edu/aboutus/accreditation.php )

A friend of mine told me about it, and I think she's either already taking classes or going to be soon. I personally don't start until late August, but I'm looking forward to it. They have some really interesting history classes, which I'm excited about.

Mackenzie's right, lots of regular physical colleges have online classes... I've taken some before, the only problem for me ever was being able to register for a class before it fills up, but that can be an issue anywhere of course!

Two schools I looked at for distance learning:

Eastern Oregon University

University of Oklahoma

More later, have to run.

thanks lairnelin and mum2a&a.
i knowbaout the classes being filled up. at my school i have been trying to take an aromatherapy class for ages. i am starting to think that you have to email the professor and suck up before the computer lets you register.

thanks again for the links.

I just wanted to share with all of you that i just signed up for my last class. I will, God willing, have my BSN by this Sept 12th. In a few weeks i will have my Bachelors degree. I simply cannot believe i am this close, that it is almost here.

I am taking a Ethics class...its listed as PHL 323, i believe its Business Ethics, or Ethics in Management. I just ordered my book. I will be taking this directed study (which i am liking very much!). It seems i was 6 humanities credits short to graduate, so i am taking this class to meet the requirement.

I am thinking of having a party here, i hope you will join me!

I am so happy for all of you guys who are doing so well in your studies, and almost there!

I am only starting my 4-year program :Puke ! It's going to be an intense program, but will pass by so quickly. I have 1.5 years University classes and then 2.5 years travelling Ontario for 6 12-week placements! I will be so exhausted when it's done but soooo happy!

Good luck Mamas, I hope this thread lasts 4 years :LOL !

i take it from your sig, your courses are for midwifery?
what school are you attending?
tell me all about it.

Maia,

I'm just beginning my second year and am only a sophomore because I tested out of five classes so I have a long path to journey as well.

I either want to be a PA or a DO but I have also considered midwifery and if I lived in either Ontario or Vancouver I would attempt to be accepted into the Canadian BMW programm(e). If you're in that programme I congratulate you because, from what I understand, it only accepts 10 people.

Fighting envy.......

i know how you feel with the fighting envy thing...
several friends made it right away into the nursing program becasue they went to traditional highschools and took chemistry and biology.
well i didnt. i went to free schools and open school's where i didnt take any science.
now i have to take a ton of math, chem and biology... i would anyway becasue i am more than 5 years out of highschool but still...

I know about classes being full too. I have been trying to take a nutrition class for a few quarters now. I have set up my course schedule so that I will have taken all of my pre-requisites for Seattle Midwifery School. I had planned on applying for this fall but that would have left me a few classes short on my AA and so I decided to go for one more year so that I could have my AA and be set up to transfer if that does not work out. I have all of the pre-requisites done now except for that darn nutrition class. I could take another science discipline (as I have plenty of chem and bio) but I need nutrition to be able to go to SMS.

Have a great day on purpose!
post #99 of 523
Ok, the excitement is mounting! I have 13 more days until registration!! I have chose my classes:

General Chemistry
Gen Chem Lab
Western Civilization
Art Appreciation
American Literature I
Conceptual Physics

I can't waitt o take the Chem class, and I am looking forward to seeing the professor's face when I walk into the Western Civ class I took him for classes last spring and it was not a pretty picture. We often debated, and I was the uber liberal of the class

Really interested in the Conceptual Physics class. I've never taken physics and this is supposed to be a real world type approach

Taking to professors before the class started pretty much got me in even if it was full. Also people always drop classes so that frees up space. One of the professors (that I know of) always starts off with 60 or so and by mid semester is down to 30 students. Generally by the end of week one students start dropping. I say talk to the professor and then wait around for drops if he/she won't admit you.

Conceptual Physics. Cool. We have something called, "Structure of the Universe" I think its all about string theory. I must take plain-Jane boring lots of math Physics.

UG.
