    You will have to register for 397 every semester until you graduate. The only thing is you need to make sure that you are registering for the correct section. For first semester, it's section 1. Second is section 2, etc.

    hey coriander, do you know if you we have to take NURS 397 class during first semester?:/
    I'm so sorry I didn't see this message before. Yes, it's exactly how SoCloseRN2B said. You don't really use the Skills Lab until about half-way through the semester but it's great to have on your schedule.

    Hi everyone! I have TONS of questions that I would love for you guys to answer!
    I recently, this summer, just went from undeclared to nursing as my premajor. I am now a sophomore at SDSU.

    First of all, congrats to everyone that got accepted!

    So my questions are.....
    1. is the nursing program that you are all talking about the major? or is it something different?
    2. when am I supposed to take my TEAS? or when do you suggest I do so?
    3. when do I start applying to get into my major?
    4. how many people are accepted into the major usually?

    Sorry for all of the amateur questions =/. I will definitely have tons more later...haha.

    Thanks for all the help! (: (: (:
    1. Yes, I believe we're all talking about the traditional BSN program. There is an RN-BSN program but I don't know if anyone on this thread is in that program.
    2. I believe you take the TEAS when you've been accepted into the pre-nursing major and are close to applying for the nursing program. I took it a few months before I applied for the program.
    3. I've heard conflicting reports on this: I was told that they prefer you to have all of your prerequisites finished before you apply, but today I was told by someone that she had a class in progress when she applied. I would suggest that all of the classes are complete before you apply just to avoid any paperwork aggravation.
    4. I have 72 in my class, and there were 95 accepted for this semester. It's probably going to vary a bit depending on financial stability for the program.

    I hope this helps... please let us know if you have any other questions or need clarification!
