Second Degree Nursing Programs-pre reqs

  1. I have a degree in biology already however I want to pursue nursing. I live in Tuscaloosa area and will be speaking with an advisor about my admittance at the University. I'm not sure if the pre-reqs I have will transfer from my previous undergrad school but I have my fingers crossed. My question is which school has the best program for my situation. University of Alabama Capstone College of Nursing or Shelton CC? If I don't have all the classes will I have to take them else where before I began the nursing courses or will I be able to take them and then carry on to the BSN progra. I'm just anxious to find out my next move. Oh and will I be able to work while in school bc Im a mother of 2 and working part time. It's going to be a challenge but I'm ready for anything!

    To enter a BSN program you must have pre-reqs complete, not so for an ADN. My understanding is lab science classes are only good for 5 years. I am not sure if that is true or not, just what I have heard.

    Capstone prefers their students to be blonde girls in their early 20's.

    The advisor will be able to best guide you. I would talk to an advisor at both schools.

    Oh well I'm only 25 and I hope they don't judge like that....I have all of my science pre-reqs already and Ive only been out of school for almost two years that won't be a problem but hopefully when I do speak with an advisor i will know something thanks
