    I attend Raritan Valley Community College, and I have to tell you I've been on the wait list for almost 2 years! At RVCC, you must complete Anatomy+Phy I&II and have a certain level of math skills....I believe algebra....but you can test out as well...An applicant must also live in Somerset or Hunterdon County.

    Most NJ schools require completion of A&P I&II before you're cleared for a spot in Nursing clinicals...If you really want to become a Nurse, start applying NOW!
    I know RVCC has met their quota for the Fall 2005 class...

    Have you tried your local community college? I also read somewhere on this forum Essex County College doesn't have a wait list...Good Luck!

    RVCC offers Human Biology, but it's just an intro to human anatomy. Anatomy and Physiology I&II are more in depth when it comes to the structure and functions of the body. A8P I,II is 99.9% the course required for a nursing student.

    I also know there are a few hospital diploma programs. Check them out as well.

    Take care!

    Hi Ladies

    I have a ? for both of you. Did you take the NET recently? How hard was the math section? I really suck at math and I'm really nervous about that section. How many math ?'s were there? Did you take it on a computer? Were calculators allowed?

    Thanks for letting me bust in on your thread!

    Hi, first off good luck. Second.. most colleges want A&P I&II, microbiology, intro chem, a basic math, and a humanity elective. I would call the schools you are looking at and find out EXACTLY what their program requires.... Make SURE the college you choose is accredited by the NLN first!!!! Best of luck it is an amazing journey! You will meet wonderful friends for life too!
