    Hey girl I am starting Basics in about 2 weeks so I will tell you my story and you can take from it what you like...
    I am an Army wife that left college after my 1st semester 7 years ago to follow my hubby around the nation. 2 children and 3 deployments later I am finally settling down in my hometown to finish what I started so long ago. I have done correspondence through Delgado and also sit down classes any time he has been deployed. As of right now I have 4 semesters of nursing school and NO NON NURSING COURSES to do for my Associate's or Bachelor's. What I did a long time ago was check out Charity's curriculum and Southeastern's Bachelor curriculum to make sure that I spent the years that we have moved so much getting the unnecessary "fluff" classes as I call them ouot of the way. I know in 2012 he will finally be out of the military and we will settle in Baton Rouge. So Southeastern's bridge program seemed to fit my needs perfectly. You need to pick a school near where you are or will be after your Associate's graduation and check out their curriculum. I strongly suggest that to anyone because I have a lot of people going through nursing school with me right now that have to add the stress of classes like AP2 and Micro to their already stressful nursing curriculum and I get to focus solely on nursing. Right off the top of my head I know that you need 2 chems and a social science for SLU which is not required at CSN. You are a very smart girl to get started on this! Good luck to you my friend!!
    I'm finishing up some prerequs at SLU right now and applying for their BSN accelerate program in January. I'm not familiar with Charity's requirements, but at SLU you need 2 Chem's and 2 lab's, 2 A&P and labs, GBio, Development Psych, Sociology, Micro. This is in addition to the other stuff like English, Math, Comm...
    Don't know if that was any help, but it's something.
    Oh, and they offer a LOT online. I personally have taken Communications, 2 English classes and Sociology online. They also offer GBIO, A&P and Micro online for sure. I'm not sure of anything else.
    Good luck!

    Congrats on getting in. I’m also starting in spring 2011 , although I am still taking two classes this fall. You should take an intro to pharmacology or a nutrition class if you already haven't these were some of the classes they recommended you take. These are the ones I went ahead in scheduled because I would go crazy waiting until Jan.
