Where to take pre-requisites? CA, SF and East Bay area? HELP

  1. Dear board members,
    I am new here, and I have been thinking about RN profession for a sometime already. Today I have decided to start. I did lots of reading online and here I have a question.
    I live in the East Bay, San Francisco Bay area, therefore I am looking at the schools around me.
    Where is the best place to start taking pre-requisites, starting like from now, this fall? I know most of the schools offer them, but I heard that some schools teach them faster or something.
    Please, I really need your advise, I know you all are busy people, but please help.
    Thanks a lot in advance!
    PS: any recommendations on schools?

    Hi,

    Congrats on choosing nursing. My best of luck to you...

    I decided a few years ago to study nursing and needed all of my pre-reqs because my first degree wasn't at all science oriented. Anyway, I was able to complete them all in a year but I had to travel around a bit and use the lesser congested j.c.'s. I went to college of alameda and napa valley college. I did these both from the east bay as well and it wsn't that big of a hassle. I avoided the bigger schools(DVC, Los Medanos, etc) because all their classes filled up quick with already enrolled students. This was three years ago(Fall 2002) so hopefully it's still fairly simple.
    Good luck,
    Mab BSN 2005!
