lpn prerequisites

  1. 0
    Are LPN prerequisites the same as they would be for an RN.I was hoping to take all my prerequisites while doing the lpn program, so that I can do a bridge program for rn without extra classes.

    Depending on your school, you do not need any prereqs for an LPN program however, some requires you to have anatomy and physiology, college math, and or college english and if that was the case then yes they would be the same and if I were you, I wouldnt really take prereqs while in nursing school, you could burn yourself out and nursing school is hectic enough.

    Agreed! I wouldn't add anymore stress than necessary while in nursing school. I'm in the LPN/LVN program & I cannot even phantom the thought of extra classes. Especially in your 2nd semester. Most colleges require very minimum pre-reques & for RN they require a little more.

    I go to a county college in jersey and the prereqs are not the same. Ive taken public speaking, english comp, math, psyc, and soc so far. For RN i was told that you need several other classes. This semester they threw in english comp 102 because it is required for the RN program. Its always good to take the extra classes if you can. You never know where life will take you so if you do decide to go for RN anytime in the future, you will not need to worry about prereqs and can jump right into the nursing portion.
    Good luck
