    If I went to college from 1997-1999 and have an associates in science, will all my prereqs be done for the RN to BSN program? Even my science classes? What about the 5 year cutoff?

    Short answer: NO
    There is a cutoff for A&P as well as Micro. In addition, articulation agreements change.

    each state has different rules for nursing school requirements - it is not the schools that decide this. For example, i have a Bachelor's in biology and did masters work in Immuno/Micro - i still had to retake Microbiology 101 as even thos i had done the class in grade school, TA'ed the 101, and work in molecular Micro iit did not count towards it being done in the past 10 years for Maryland. If i had applied to UofPenn all of the pre-reqs would have to be done in the past 5 years - including biology 101 which i have taught/TA'ed and it is a subject that I have a degree in. unfair? - kind of - but if they keep the rules the same for everyone and don't make acceptations than it is a level playing field. Thus I decided not to apply to UofPenn.

    THIS is an informative thread. I am personally having a problem finding a graduate level forensic nursing program, I've started looking outside my area (SoCal) because the budget has adversely affected programs offered by the State Uni's. The only programs I've been able to find are offered by Kaplan (the subject of the PE news article linked earlier in the thread), Case Western (I cannot find it listed as an accredited school when I search on the site linked earlier in the thread), Xavier (its accredited, has a good rep but no online offering and its in Ohio), and an online post baccalaureate cert from Johns Hopkins. The DON at the hospital I work at graduated from Case Western it has not adversely affected her.
    Fitchburg State University, in Massachusetts, has an online masters in Forensic Nursing.
