    lapoRtaN,

    Hypothetically Speaking, If by chance i do get accepted, what do you think about taking NUR I and Micro together?

    I was told by a counselor not to take them at the same time, but this counselor also told me not to take Bio 121 and Chm 101 at the same time, but i ended up getting an A in both.

    I'm just not sure about the challenges of Nursing classes.

    I did micro separately. But you know yourself better than anyone. Nursing 108 and 233 are really challenging and they are both about 9 credits so that gives you an idea of how much time you need to spend on it. Good luck and CONGRATS!

    Congrats. I just decided to go for the nursing program at ECC. I haven't taken the pre classes yet...I'm still in high school. I hope to take English 101 next semester and the other classes Fall of 12' and then apply for the Fall 13' day program.

    Any advice, tips, or books recommendations? I really want to get it.

    Be sure to know your sciences...again. Be sure to know your sciences, read lots of books and enhance your vocabulary.
    ISBN-13: 978-0763762711 is a must have; it is the NLN Pre-entrance exam study guide. Know, know know your math...amongst other section. "English from the Roots Up Flashcards" might also breaking down words.
    If you know the study guide, you should do very well. Study extensively and thoroughly and take all the tests that are inside of the book. Learn from your mistakes.

    I talked to someone in the red area today and she said there is a waiting list. And I have to do all my prerequisites (Eng 101, Chem 101, Mth 100, Soc 101, Psy 101, and Bio 121) before even thinking about applying to the nursing program. I thought there was only three prerequisites. And MTH 92 was one of them not 100? She told me to wait a year then apply.

    Next semester I'm taking Chem 101, Eng 101, and BIO 121. I thought I'd be able to apply in June or July in hope of getting into the evening program January 2013.

    Go to the Blue Area or the allied health/nursing building. You will get better information from there.

    KhiaMarie,

    You absolutely can take your pre-reqs in January, and then test in September for the evening. It is exactly what i did. Pre reqs are Bio 121, Eng 101 amd Chem 101 or 103. I am actually taking Soc 101 right now. I have alreay taken Psy 101 and Math 100 is not a pre req (although i have taken it). If you plan on getting into the program be sure to do exceptionally in you pre reqs as well as on the exam.

    As LapoRtan said, you will get better info from the Nursing Dept or Blue area.

    When is the test if you want to enter the evening program? When is the test if you want to enter the day program? I just finished my pre-requisites and handed in my application.
