I don't get it either but if you aren't fresh out of high school with all of your sciences and math done then it will take approximately 4-5 semesters to get all of the prerequisites done for the ADN at most institutions that I've seen. The private programs that do not have them separated do not take as long but most "state colleges or universities" have the format of doing the classes before you are even accepted into the program.
I am in the same boat.
I am a LPN. I am enrolled pt now at my local college taking my AP2 lab. Next semester I will do microbiology lecture and lab. Then I will finally be done with ALL of the prerequisites.
It's been a long road just to get to those last 3 semesters left of the LPN to RN bridge.
