Curious to know

  1. Hello, I am new to this !! I am from NC, and I am interested in going to nursing school. Starting this summer I am taking the prereq's ( chem, anat, micro, etc.). I am curious to know if anyone can tell what I can expect?? Is it really as hard as they say?? I am also trying to figure out which courses to take together. Should I take Anat w/micro, or chem?? Is that a bad combo?? I am hoping to get into nursing school in January. Thanks!

    What you can expect is to work very hard. You might have to put your life on hold sometimes.You learn to focus on what you are doing in order to make the most of your time. I took A&P with Algebra, but not another science course. I hope you take another science course before A&P to get the basics down. Chemistry and micro both require labs. Can you take two at the same time? I would not load myself down in the beginning because your GPA will matter when you apply to nursing school. Good luck!

    Thanks Purplemania!! I am not sure if I can take two at the same time. I am taking chemistry first for sure. I also need to take an algebra class and maybe that is what I should take with the chemistry. But after those courses I will need the A&P I so I would have to take it with micro, or with my second chemistry, otherwise I don't think I will get into Nursing school at the time I am hoping

    have you spoken to a counselor about what classes you can take together? i couold only take micro after taking ap1. if this isn't so for you, take caution with micro as it is a difficult subject. also prepare to make nursing school your priority and be totally committed. good luck!!!

    Actually I spoke with my counselor today. i don't plan on taking micoro until after A&P I & II. It looks like my first courses will be anatomy I and chemistry together. I will pray that it all works out!
