Hi. I'm a southern california student and I recently decided to do pre-nursing after completing 1 year of biology track courses at a Texas school. I moved to california because my family relocated here. I was originally enrolled at UCR but when I realized I wanted to do nursing had to withdraw because they don't have pre-nursing courses..or well their courses aren't geared towards that. I'm enrolled at MSJC and will be taking a late start sociology class. I am hoping that I can finish the pre-reqs in time to apply to a Spring 2008 nursing class. If there are any california nursing students that could possibly tell me what kind of qualifications they had to get into a BSN school, I would greatly appreciate it. I know all the schools
are pretty much "impacted" and have looked into their sites. They have point systems and I also talked to a counselor at msjc but I'd still really like to get your experiences. For example, most of these schools seem to include in their criteria or point system students that are bilingual (likely to be spanish). I don't know how I could possibly fit 2 semesters of spanish prior to applying but if necessary i will try. Also I noticed that some include health-care experience. My mom wanted me to look up EKG classes so I can do some kind of EKG tech/help and get experience. I'm looking into CSU LB, CSU SB, CSU SM, and SDS. Anyway any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
