    I'm planning to return to school F/T in the Fall (after a 6yr layoff). I will be entering in as a 'sophmore' since I have transferred credits...

    For prereq's, I plan on taking A&P 1&11 in the summer sessions, then start my first 2 nursing classes this fall, as well as Chem 1 and Micro...

    I don't know if that's impossible, but it's very close to what the 'prescribed' 4-year plan is for the BSN at this school. I hope I can do it.

    Already accepted for Fall 2002, so I'm done all the pre-req's for getting in the program (BscN).

    Have a question though: - been reading the pre-req's of nursing programs in the states from the bb, and they sound more like undergrad courses... are they?

    Does one have to have a few university courses under their belt before applying to a U.S. nursing program? Not to mention a test for nursing like the MCAT? sounds hard!

    In Toronto, great H.S. marks are sufficient enough In addition, some university courses taken prior to enrollment in nursing are good to get you exempt from taking them again!

    At the school I am awaiting acceptance for( my first acceptance at a different school, I had to withdrawl due to personal reasons) this Fall 2002 RN program, there are 2 different RN programs you may enter.

    One is the Generic Program and it is for those who does not have any nursing background mostly but LPN, etc, do go this route which is the one I would like to go through because of my personal re-viewing of Fundamental, I feel I need because of being out of school a few years.

    For this program the pre-reqs required are:
    Principles of Biology I w/lab
    English I
    Intermediate Algebra or Finite Math

    The second Program is the Mobility Program for those who are LPNs and the prerequisites are:
    Principles of Biology I w/lab
    Anatomy and Physiology I w/lab
    English I
    Intermediate or Finite Math

    For the Generic (5 semesters), the NET has to be taken to be considerd and for the Mobility (4 semesters), Fundamental of Nursing has to be taken to be considerd and both exam must be passed with at least a C.

    The other general courses are:
    Anatomy and Physiology II w/lab
    Microbiology w/lab
    General Psychology
    Fundamentals of Public Speaking
    3 different activity courses
    Orientation
    Critical reading for college
    English II

    All science and math courses must have been taken within the last five years of the year you will be applying for.

    Prayfully, I will start this Fall (2002) and will only have the clincal portion as I have completed all of the required and general courses for the ASN and have taken 4 required and general course for a BSN with only 4 more to go and it is possible I will take them while during clinicals, we will see. Lots Of Love

    I am so excited and can't wait. During the summer I am taking eng com II, human growth and development, and a&p II. Originally, I wasn't supposed to take all these other than a&pII but the community college I was attending, is closing thier nursing program if they can not get passing scores for the board exam to at least 75%. THis puts me approx.6 months behind. Oh, well....... will graduate in May 2004!! CAN'T WAIT
    What school were you attending? I am at LSCC.

    I'm starting a BSN program in the fall. I have all my pre-reqs from my BSc, but I haven't looked at any of this stuff in six years, so I'm going to be spending the summer reviewing all the physiology, anatomy and statistics that I've forgotten. I hope it all comes back quickly!
