Should that hold true, I can't seem to grasp why so much emphasis is placed on 1 test while prerequisite gpa is based on numerous classes consisting of many tests, time, effort, sweat, and sometimes blood(I cut myself dissecting a cat). Doing good on 1 test just requires enough time to prepare and anyone can pass with good scores. IMO prerequisite classes should carry more weight. But I guess my opinion doesnt really matter as everyone has one.
Sorry to hear you got cut dissecting a cat :/
I wondered the same thing as you about the whole english and reading thing so I asked them why they just don't put emphasis on the actual science courses since it is more related to nursing. According to them, they emphasize the english and reading because they want to make sure we nurses don't read anything wrong on the job like patient's files or any important documents as it might cause us to give the wrong medications or make errors. The prereqs measure the science knowledge so they needed the english part also.
