Just need a short vent. . . I am attending college with accelerated courses (1 class a month) working on my Associates Degree in Vet Tech. (1 more year) It is quite expensive and I only get 12 class days a month to learn all the material. We are currently learning about atoms, protons, electrons, specific heat, etc. Everyone is struggling. (I should preface that I have been a nurse for over 18 years and I feel that I am fairly intelligent) I asked the instructor yesterday how all this relates to being a vet tech and she said "It doesn't" So now, I don't know if I am just overwhelmed or downright p**s that I am spending over $1200 a month to learn something that I will never have to use. In the vet tech program, you have to pass this class to move on to your core programs. I just don't think it is fair that a class that is not even related to the field of study can be the deciding factor whether you can move on to the core classes. There are 3 people in my class that this is the second time they are taking it. And if you don't pass this class, you have to wait until January to get back into the rotation for the core classes (all other pre requisites done and out of the way)
Whewwwww! Thanks for listening! I'm gonna try to put myself together and remain calm as I go to class this afternoon. Wish me luck!!!
