So Barry University is giving their newly admitted students the option to take two of the first semester classes this fall 2008 instead of taking them in January. So that would split the credits into two semesters...but my question is: how many of their new students are actually doing this and how many of their current and alumni recommend this. If not, why not? Below I will cut and paste the classes they are offering.

ANE 525A – Professional Aspects of Anesthesiology is a one (1) credit hour course that is scheduled on Wednesdays from 11am-12noon. One requirement of this course is to attend one day of a nurse anesthetist state meeting. You may choose to attend in your home state, or attend one day of the meeting of the Florida Association of Nurse Anesthetists during the weekend of October 24-26, 2008. Tuition for ANE 525A is $815 ($815 x 1 cr.) and includes the cost of registration for your attendance at the state meeting of your choice (hotel and transportation costs are not covered). If you are admitted into the Program already, there are no pre-requisites to take this course.
ANE 560 – Chemistry and Physics of Anesthesia is a three (3) credit hour course that is scheduled every Wednesday from 12noon to 3pm. Tuition for ANE 560 is $2445 ($815 x 3 cr.).You must have successfully completed the chemistry requirement for admission into the Program to be eligible to enroll in this course.
