    I am also minoring in psychology which involves 20 more credits!

    I will be finishing this program in 3 instead of 4 years because I can go in the summer for the non-nursing courses. In our school you have to take the nursing courses in specific order, if you fail you have to wait until fall of the next year to continue, so it is pretty intense!!

    Good luck to all the student nurses out there in cybernurse land!!

    I hope this information is helpful. Our first semester we have 2 hours of lab and 4 hours a week of clinicals. The other semesters we are in clinicals and lab 12 hours a week. I am very curious about clinicals! I think it is wild that after a couple of weeks of simulated clinicals at school we will actually be at the hospital! That is kind'a scary for me!

    Good luck to ya!

    I am entering an ADN program in Texas in August 2001. Our prereqs include:
    • A&P I
      A&P II
      Microbiology
      Gen. Psychology
      Human Growth & Development
      Composition and Rhetoric (English I)
      Humanities or Visual and Performing Arts Course
      Microcomputer Applications


    I have completed all of the prereqs.

    The ADN program is as follows:
    • Nursing Skills I
      Intro to Professional Nursing
      Nursing Skills II
      Clinical I
      Care of the Client with Common Health Care Needs
      Clinical II
      Care of the Client with Complex Health Care Needs
      Clinical IIIA
      Clinical IIIB
      Integrated Client Care Management

      Transition to Associate Degree Nursing


    Total number of hours 71. We are not required to take the Speech or Electives, nor Math. However, we do have a Continuing Ed. class that it is highly RECOMMENDED that we take this summer called "Dosage Calculations". This is a non-credit class, but is being taught by the Health Science Dean and, as I said before, is highly RECOMMENDED that we take it.

    Hope this helps in your comparison. Good luck to you!!

    Blonde mommy. I bet you are enrolled in Belleville area college. I noticed the southern illinois and the hro150 nutrition class. Have you had this class yet? If you could email me and let me know. I am taking this class this summer starting June 4. I am currently enrolled in Lewis & Clark. Look forward to hearing from you.
