    No I did not retake any classes. I think you are confusing your psych degree classes with the nursing degree. Not all your psych degree classes are going to have anything to do with the nursing degree. There are only 10 non nursing courses that are required to get your assiciate RN degree. A couple of the classes will differ depending on what school you go to.. example some programs require College algebra some require statistics. LM will allow 6 of the 10 non nursing to be taking elsewhere and transfered in although they will allow a 7th. which means 7 of the classes can be taken at a different school and then the remainder 3 will be taken at LM. Now one of those 10 classes is actually NU 404 which is taken anytme after taking Nursing 101 so I guess there are really only 9 classes that are not nursing related.

    I already had Eng comp I and intro to psychology from 1995 but into to psych is not part of the nuring curriculum at LM so that is not considered one of the classes to be transferred over for the associates , for the bachelors possibly but for the associates it is not relevent.

    Algebra and Chem are separate from the 7 classes because they are not part of the degree but are needed before you can even be accepted to the program.
    I had taken before applying to the program

    algebra, chem class , biology pre-reqs for anatomy & nursing program

    part of the actual nursing program

    Eng COMP I
    Human Growth
    Sociology
    A&P I
    A&P II
    Micro
    I applied to LM with the above classes and at the time I was taking
    Ethics
    LM is taken my Ethics class as a transfer so in all that is 7 classes that I am transfering in to LM that apply to the actual nursing degree program.
    I only have left
    statistics which I am currently taken at Regis
    Eng Comp II which I will take next summer also at Regis.

    If I took all my classes before applying to LM then I would have to pick at least 2 of the classes to retake at LM. If that was the case then I would choose 2 of my 3 credit classes. class time is shorter and on average they are not as difficult as the 4 credit science course. I would have probably chose a Eng and a sociology to repeat if given the choice. Where do you live because all non nursing classes that are for Lawrence Memorial are to be taken at Regis in Weston Ma. Now for me that is an hour ride home at the end of the night. I sure wouldn't want to have a 5 hour science class after working all day and then drive home for another hour. So you will have to plan accordingly for what will work best for you.

    No, that just helped a lot!! Thankyou!

    I live near Weston, well a lot closer then Lawrence! I just don't know if my GPA will even be acceptable at this point, and I need to take Chemistry regardless now.

    i'm actually thinking about applying to the Blue Hills LPN program and then doing LPN to RN, and I'd like to goto LM. It's not my first choice to do that, but it seems like getting into nursing school is more possible this way. hopefully some of my college courses will transfer then, if thats even acceptable with a bridge program!
