Hi everyone, I'm new here & this is my first post
I'm currently in the CNA course which is a prerequisite requirement for the nursing program at my community college. I will be finishing the course on Dec 7, & starting spring semester in January.
I have a lot of pre-reqs so there will be 2 pre-admission semesters AT LEAST. I'm going to try to be accepted into the nursing program in Spring of 2013. (Fall of 2012 if I can since I will be taking the summer semester as my 2nd pre-req sem) This semester coming up I plan to be working as a CNA & I'm also a single mom which is a full-time job in itself. I was going to take Human Bio (4cr + lab), Freshman Rht & Comp (3cr), Algebra&Geo1(5cr), & Intro to Psych (3cr). They are all offered online so that is what I was going to do. I only will have to go one day a month to the Bio labs, & then make it to campus for the midterms & finals which I think is pretty do-able. The problem is, is 15 credit hours online too much??
? If I take 15 hours now, then I will only have 8 to take next semester, where I will take another math class to still be considered a full-time student for financial aid. What credit hours did you/are you taking your pre-admission semesters? any single moms out there with a little support system that can help??
thanks so much!!!!
