Penn Nursing - Program Workload Specifics?
My understanding is that the workload at Penn Nursing is quite heavy. I'm wondering about any of the following:
-- Would the first year workload likely be much more time-consuming than my current high school schedule: APs in English, Biology, Statistics, and Psychology, plus several courses with very little homework?
-- Is the General and Organic Chemistry course as much of a backbreaker as the Organic Chem course that pre-meds take?
-- Is the out-of-class work for the non-nursing courses very time-consuming?
-- Does the total time commitment increase during the third and fourth years due to clinicals?
I have no problem working hard and I know that I'll enthusiastically do that during my nursing career, but I wonder whether I'd have time during college for any of the great extracurriculars (e.g. a capella, a 7 hour a week commitment, I believe) that Penn has. Thanks!
