Thanks to jazznjac and ShannonW!!! Shannon, I will e mail you as soon as I figure out how to navigate this site. LOL Any experience with online classes at wcccd? Was hoping to take as many pre reqs as possible that way so I can still work. Also, I can't believe there is only med math and no chem. What about on the teas? That freaks me out!Was there a wait to get into program? I have soo many questions....
No worries! You can just click here
, click "Contact Info" and just look for "MSN."
I've taken a few classes online. Many people love them, but it's just not for me - I'm too apt to procrastinate.
For the Bio classes (except Patho), you'd still need to go to a campus for the labs. It might be kind of pointless to take Microbiology online, since you have lab twice a week in that class. Some classes, though, like psychology (PSY 101), Lifespan Development (PSY 200/HSC 200), English (ENG 119, ENG 120), etc can be pretty easy online. I've heard pathophysiology is easier online as well.
Yep, no chemistry! However, I've heard that taking it can help. I took a few extra classes (ALH 110/Medical Terminology
, SOC 120/Death & Dying, chemistry, etc) while taking my pre- and co-reqs, and after looking through the nursing books
, I can already tell those classes will help me.
I lucked out and got to avoid the TEAS - my entering class is the last one to have gotten to take the NET - but this site
indicates that the TEAS consists of four areas: math, reading, English, and science. The NET had those areas as well, but the science area was minute and, insofar as I know, didn't count against us.
WCCCD doesn't do a wait-list (Henry Ford, of course, does), thankfully! I applied in June 2009, was accepted in September (our "happy letters" were delayed), went to my orientation on November, and start on the 19th of this month. I started classes in summer 2007, but I got all of my co-reqs out of the way as well as my pre-reqs, and didn't take BIO 155 my first semester, so it took me longer to be ready to apply. ^^
