Thank you everyone for your input.
I am also taking NONA's pre-reqs but I am expecting to apply in Fall 2014.
I am registered at Broward College for CHEM1032, Nutrition, and Statistics for the upcoming semester. Where are you taking your pre-reqs and which CHEM class are you going to take?
Thanks everyone. It seems like general chemistry is the best course to take for future possibilities.
What about CHEM1032 which is a survey course (I think) covering selective topics in general, organic, and biochemistry and it was designed specifically for health care students. I am leaning for this course bc it suppose to cover all topics relative to nursing career but I am not sure it will be a pass for a pre-req in a master level degree.
I just got a volunteer position with Good Samaritan Medical Center in W Palm Beach, FL. I have a year left to finish my pre-reqs and was hoping to gain hospital experience and learn more about the nursing field by volunteering but they assigned me to Out Patient Registration and I am not too happy about it. I never worked at a hospital but from what I was told I will not have much contact with nurses in this position.
I want to make the most out of my time there and work in a position where I will have a chance to observe nurses and see sick patients being treated. I selected emergency room area as my preferred department to work in but I did not get it. In fact none of the volunteers that started with me got what they wanted so that made me shy to ask to be changed into another position...I don't want to sound like I am there more for my own benefit than to give my time to the hospital.
Please advise me on what you think I should do.
Thank you for your comment. I just got done with my physical exam and have orientation tomorrow.
I am very excited about this opportunity.
I have a year left to complete my pre-reqs and decided to volunteer at a local hospital to gain some hospital work experience and boost my application quality.
Do you think this volunteer experience will give me an advantage in my application?
What can i expect from this volunteer interview?
What questions should I ask?
Any advice is welcome. Thanks!
Thanks everyone. I will sign up for the general chem.
This is so discouraging to hear for a pre-nursing student like myself but thanks for sharing.
keep applying and I am sure something great will come your way!
I am working on Nova Southeastern University pre-requisites at Indian River State College. My dilemma is this...Nova said that I can take any Chemistry course and does not require a Lab. My community college offers an introductory chemistry course that is designed for real chemistry beginners (like me) but the course specify that its not designed for those majoring in health science. Should I just take the beginners course because I know it will be easier to get an "A" grade or should I take the next level Chemistry course (General Chemistry) with its lab to be better prepared for nursing school and the rest of my pre-requisite courses like A&P, Microbiology?
What do you think?
Saysfaa, thank you for your reply and advice. You have helped me make up my mind about taking the chem lab. I will do a personal review for bio. thank you again.
Thank you both for your reply.
I just joined this community and this is my first post.
I am planning to apply to Nova Southeastern University entry-level nursing program in January 2014. I am currently enrolled at Indian River State College to take my pre-requisites which are, Anatomy and Physiology I and II with Labs, Chemistry with no lab required, Microbiology with no lab required, Nutrition, and Statistics.
My question is should I take a chemistry lab and a biology class anyway to make sure that I have a stronger foundation in science? I have not taken bio or chem since 2002 in high school and I did not do very well in theses classes. I have a BA in business and avoided taking any science classes because I was intimidated by the subject. I wanted to hear from more experienced students or nurses if you think that I should invest the time (another semester) taking these not required classes to help me learn better and catch up to my peers. My husband is encouraging me to take the fastest track and do my best.
Thank you for your comments.
