This class was tough.
You will never work harder, but it is all worth it. Zimmerman is by far the best microbiology teacher. If you have any interest in learning about microbiology, which if you are a nursing student you should, than take this class from Zimmerman. I fall back on what I have learned in this course about gram positive and gram negative bacteria and so much more all the time in the clinical setting.
Lab was my favorite part of the course. The reading is dry, but Dr. Zimmerman and the lab instructors do an excellent job relating the information to real world clinical scenarios.

Advice for students:
Do not fall behind. Start studying for exams immediately. Make flash cards and think of great test questions as you are working through the chapters and lectures.
