    I had to call the tech support number. You need the number from the box the books came in or the number off the invoice in order to activate the ebooks.

    Hi, there. I'm applying for spring 2014. (Is there anyone here???applying for spring 2014?) I have a question about my prerequisite classes. All of my prerequisites courses (that are done in HCC) are 7 years old. When I talked to an adviser, he said it should be fine but I'm so nervous. Is there certain year limit for the classes? Please help...thanks!

    I think two to three semesters is more realistic. You cannot register for A&P II before you complete A&P I. Plus, you want to make sure you keep your prereq GPA very high. It's competitive!

    Thank you very much for reply Rachanee. I'm getting close to my mid thirties so time is of essence... how demanding are those courses? how many hours would i have to spend studying in addition to in-class tuition? i have some background in health sciences but will have to do all pre-requisites.

    It depends on where you are in your education. You cannot take science based courses until you are at college level math. So, if you require remedial math courses you'll need to finish those before beginning your sciences. You can take Psychology and Sociology while in remedial math. If you do not require any remedial courses then I would take general education mixed with a core science course each semester. If you don't mind a heavier load then you can take Micro with an A&P as well. To keep it lighter you can do something like College Algebra (or English), A&P, and Sociology (or Psychology). It really depends on how much you want to take on at once. Retaining that A&P information will really help in the program later on though.

    Thank you for the detailed explanation. A lighter load maybe better for me. Rachanee, When did you send all transcripts to HCC? May I submit transcripts with the application form after finishing prerequisite courses? Advisors in HCC told me I can not register prerequisite courses in Fall semester until they get my transcripts.

    If you intend on taking prerequisite courses at HCC prior to being accepted into the nursing program then you have to submit them before you can register. If you are not going take any other classes, then you can submit them with your application for the program.
