I'm confused

  1. I hope this hasn't already been asked, I've searched the forum and couldn't find what I was looking for so here goes. After graduating from an LPN/LVN program do you still have to take pre-reqs? The lady I spoke to about getting into their LVN program said you bypass all the pre-reqs by being an LVN. But I see so many of you ladies still taking pre-reqs after already having your LVN license. Is she misleading me? If the pre-reqs of Anat/Physio and Micro are still required even if you have an LVN license I am going to finish those first and then go into an LVN program. I have to know by Tuesday the 2nd, as that's when the program starts and she says if I pass the tests I can start that day!
    Does it depend on which RN program you are looking into? I know I'll probably have to call the school but it's the weekend and this is reall bugging me.

    Okay I think I found my answer. It looks like the science pre-reqs still need to be taken . . . grrrr! grumble grumble . . . lol

    Yeah, I still had to do tons of pre-reqs for my RN after I completed my RN. I did English, Math, biology, chemistry, nutrition, anat, phys, micro, & then all the ADN requirements too.

    I am having to take a bunch of the prerequisites again but that is because they are too old. I got my LPN license eleven years ago. Plus, it's a different school and some of the classes don't match up. They said after the prereqs and once i'm in the BSN program I can test out of things. Hope this helps.

    I was required to take all the pre-reqs before getting into my program.
