I became an LPN in Sept'11 and am trying to bridge into UNBC. They say that you can get into the program if you graduated within a year or have 1700 hours.
I would like to apply for Sept'12 since I will qualify for the "within a year" stipulation. However, my prerequisites such as Biol, Chem, Engl, and Math are not current within 5 years (I took those courses in 1999!). However, in my former life I had been going to University for a biology degree, and have 4th year level courses under my belt. I stopped going to University in 2006 to have a family.
I'm wondering if I apply, would having my LPN certificate exempt me from having to take those prerequisites again? When applying for the LPN program, since I was in university 3 years prior, they did not ask me to retake those courses. I know that each school is individual, and that each applicant is looked at seperately. If it matters, I did graduate with a 4.25 GPA and earned an A+ in anatomy and physiology.
Any help would be appreciated!
