Need advice regarding pre-requisites - page 3

I graduated with my BA in 2002 (non science field) I have pre-requisites I need to finish before applying to nursing school. I am currently planning to finish my pre requisites at CCD. I've heard mixed reviews about this... Read More

    It seemed to me, but that is not based on any measurable stats, that Regis was more selective than Metro. From what I understand, CU might be the most selective school of all, but then they probably also get the highest number of applications since they are a State school (cheaper) and have a great reputation.
    The sense I got is that Metro gets the fewest applicants of the three, probably because it's still a pretty new program. CU definitely gets the most applicants by far. The people I've talked to in the medical community were all very positive about all three programs.

    I agree with you, and that is the same feedback I got from Healthcare professionals about all three programs.

    It's good to hear that all 3 programs are well respected in the field! I'm hoping I get accepted *somewhere* I'm super nervous about it!

    Thank you so much for everyone's replies. I will probably continue with what I have for this spring at CCD and apply to FRCC and Arapahoe for next year so I have more options for classes. I prefer the hybrid classes as I'm not sure how well I'd do on the labs myself, that's always the hardest part for me.

    I was looking at the pre-requisites for Regis again as I've been reading and it seems like their ABSN may be a good option for me due to start date and length of program. However, they require quite a few more courses than the other colleges do. Does anyone know what my time limit is on those? I've already taken pretty much all of the non-science pre-reqs (I was a psych major when I started college and have taken lots of psych and sociology courses) I have also taken a religion course as part of my honors classes in college. I *may* not have taken a philosophy course, but I'm pretty sure I have. Will I have to retake all of these classes again?

    Also, it says the Healthcare Ethics class has to be an upper division, I'm assuming the CC Healthcare Ehics course isn't going to be sufficient, correct?

    ETA: I see they allow for unofficial transcript evaluation, so I'm going to do that this semester while I finish up a few things I know I need to take!

    JamieA0321 do you mind sharing a bit of info on the Metro A&P hybrid class? Do you still take tests online, or do you take tests during the lab section? How is the class going so far? What is your course load like? TIA!!
