hi, i'm a 45 year old mother, with children now grown and very interested in public health nursing...i want to do my rn associates, work with a partnering social agency, and keep myself abreast of all changes, down to the end of the road....old age and continuous schooling.
but i really want hands on, which is why i want nursing. i am in the massachusetts area, and looking for community college programs, etc.
question: some schools require pre-admission exams, some do not; is this a state licensing decision? for instance, the nh comm colleges require it - ma does not. what are benefits, disadvantages of taking the exam? can it be retaken, or is it an elimination factor?
question: can you use CLEP exams for prereq's before formal submission to programs?
question: what is the best route for refreshing in biology, chem, anatomy, physiology?
sorry, lot of questions, but will give back any info i find
but looking forward to it
