    If you hold an associates degree you shouldn't have to do ANY pre-req's. I would pass over any school that required pre-req's from an experienced RN with an accociated degree.
    Every single school in our area requires prereqs. We aren't required to even complete college level math to enter our program, so things like that have to be completed and then courses like statistics, chemistry, etc. I believe we only have 30 gen Ed requirements in the ADN, while there are 60 to receive a bachelor's degree.

    *** Ya same for my state. That's why I rejected them in favor of a programs that didn't require any. It's rediculous to require lower division work from a holder of an associated degree. If everybody would reject those schools who do they would have to mend their ways.
    Take a look at Nova Southeastern's RN to BSN program for one example.

    Texas has a thing called "core completion." the government mandates what lower level courses everyone has to have and once you complete the set out hours, you're core compete and it follows you to any school in Texas you transfer to. Good because you don't have to take extra lower level junk after you get an associates degree. But the nursing schools get around it somehow and I'm not sure why. I guess because they include it in their degree plan instead of calling it gen Ed.

    I don't know, but I totally agree with you! Once you have your associated degree, you should only have upper level work to do.
