Change of plans!!

Okay! I just changed my schedule!! I didn't want to go to school late, but I heard this other patho professor is way better, so I am taking him. At least with my new schedule I won't have classes on Tuesday and I can prepare for clinical, etc.
Do you guys think this sounds better?

Fundamentals 12:00 pm - 2:50 pm
Pathophysiology 4:30 pm - 6:20 pm


Clinical 6:30-2:20

Physical Exam & Assessment 12:30 pm - 2:20 pm
Pathophysiology 4:30 pm - 6:20 pm

Clinical lab on campus 12:30 pm - 2:50 pm

Still undecided about pharm, which would be Mondays 8:30-11:30 or so.

Need Advice!!

I need advice everyone!
Should I take Pharm. the first semester along with patho, fundamentals, clinical, physical exam, and the lab for clinical? It would put me at 17 credits, but it only meets Monday mornings.
Would this be too much for the first semester? Will I be missing out if I wait to take it second semester? Also, second semester we have Med Surg and Psych, so do you think Pharm would be too much with that?

Nursing School Orientation

Well, I had my orientation yesterday. Boy was I tired!! Overall, it went good.
I got there way too early because someone told me traffic is bad at that time, but I guess I was lucky. First, the Dean came in and congratulated us all. Apparently, over 600 people applied and only 72 were accepted! I was one of them! yay!!
Basically, the whole orienation (7+ hours) consisted of mainly the clinical hospitals trying to convince us to choose them for our rotations. We got to choose between 4 hospitals. One is the biggest one in the area, the other is on campus, the third is a mix of 3 on campus, and the 4th is a big one as well, but it's almost an hour (maybe 45 minutes) away.
At my school, you pick one hospital and then you're there for all 5 semesters. There is no switching once you're matched up, NO MATTER WHAT!
I picked my top 4 in that order and of course, I got my 4th freakin' choice. Now I have to drive soooooo far for 2 years.

Here is my schedule for first semester:
Fundamentals 12:00 pm - 2:50 pm

Pathophysiology 8:30 am - 10:20 am

Clinical 6:30-2:20 (chya, so I need to leave before the sun is up!)

Pathophysiology 8:30 am - 10:20 am
Physical exam and assessment 12:30 pm - 2:20 pm

Lab for clinical 12:30 pm - 2:50 pm

Mother Theresa

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough;
Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it's all between you and god;
It was never between you and them anyway.
