Hi. I am wanting to apply to the RN nursing program in the fall and I am so confused on several things. IF anyone has any insight that would be greatly appreciated!
I already have a associates degree from NW and I understand that I have to retake my science classes, because it has been 5 years since I have graduated. Should I take this while IN nursing school or before I even apply? Once you are in nursing school and have already taken all the pre-reqs, are all the classes you take, just nursing related? Are the classes, like normal college classes M-W-F or T-Th or is it M-F? HOw many hours is it each semester? When you are accepted to nursing school, do you then get to register for night classes or is that something you have to tell them upfront?
When am I suppose to take the nursing test?
Thank you for any advice!

I am in my last semester of the RN program. I graduated from the LPN program in 2004. Some of my classes were older than 5 yrs and I had to take them over. I have taken all my classes with my nursing classes. I took A&P I in class, but the next semester I took it online. I wish I would have known how easy it was online the first semester. I got an A out of both classes but I had to work for it the first semester. You have to maintain at least 12 hrs each semester. First and second semesters the classes are MWF, and third and last semesters are MW. Clinicals will be on either T or TH. It is a difficult program, but it can be done. When you register you can sign up for your evening classes then. I am not for sure when the next time they are giving the NET exam. Just call the nursing department and ask when is the next test date. Good luck and if you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
