my plan is to get my BSN from gsu, work a year or two for my direct patient care eperience, then start a PA program and ultimately be a Physician Assistant.
I wanna get all my pre-reqs for PA school out of the way by the time i get my BSN too.
These are the science PA pre-reqs for Mercer:
General Biology with labs (2 courses)- 8 semester hours
Microbiology with lab-4 semester hours
Anatomy with lab (or A&P 1with lab)-4 semester hours
Physiology with lab (or A&P 2 with lab)-4 semester hours
General Chemistry with labs (2 courses)-8 semester hours
Organic Chemistry with lab-4 semester hours
General Biochemistry (lab not required)-3-4 semester hours
at the bottom of this list it adds: Note: "survey of" or "principles of" courses may not meet this requirement. May need approval of the Director of Admissions.
for getting into georgia states nursing program
some of the requirements are:
Biol 1110K-1120K (Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II w/labs)
Biol 2300 (Microbiology and Public Health)
Biol 2310 (Microbiology and Public Health Lab)
Chem 1151K-1152K (Survey of Chemistry I and II w/labs) strongly recommended OR
Biol 1103K-1104K (Introductory Biology I and II w/labs)
my question in, will either the chem 1151k (survey of) or biol 1103k (introductory) be counted towards that requirement? or will i have to take something else altogether! if so, wat do u recommend since after the first year, where ill be taking the pre--reqs to get into the program, pretty much all the rest of my classes will be nursing specific?
