Hi folks, new guy on the boards (felt it necessary to specify my sex)
I just graduated with a BA in Philosophy this past May and have decided to pursue a nursing education, and i'm in a bit of a hurry to get the ball rolling for the January semester as I know I will need to spend at least one semester (or possible more than one) on prerequisite courses before entering into any program.
My question pertains to prereq requirements for the various Associate's degree programs: why is that for some I would only need 1 chem OR bio OR phys and anatomy, whereas for others I need 10 (over two semesters worth) of courses? The programs with minimal requirements, such as the one linked below, are attractive to me; I would really like to begin my practical nursing experience in two and a half years rather than in four. But I am interested in learning about the quality of the program, given that the prerequisites are so minimal. The one in particular that i'm looking at is NLNAC accredited:
How does it appear to you?
