I just got accepted to Hunter College pre nursing program. I already have a Degree in something else, BUT HAVE NOT TAKEN ANY OF THE SCIENCE PRE -REQUISITE. Basicly, I have to take all the Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Psychology, Anatomy, Physiology etc, in the fall and spring before applying to the nursing program. I have not been in college since 2000 and it's kind of scary to go back and take all these strong classes all together. So my question is, SHOULD I START STUDYING NOW ON MY OWN AND BE AHEAD OF THE GAME? HOW DIFFICULT ARE THESE CLASSES? I HAVE A 3.10 GPA AND NEED TO GET A'S IN ALL MY PRE-REQUISITES TO RAISE MY OVERALL GPA. I wil be working during my pre nursing (I have a son). PLEASE HELP!!

I'm taking Chem at Nassau Community College. I work during the week and they had a weekend course. Which classes did they tell you to take in the summer? I'm only taking one because everything else I can take in the fall/spring. I think you only need a special permit (E-Permit) if you will take the summer courses at a CUNY school. I already registered at Nassau CC because I didn't need a permit. I will just get a transcript at the end of summer and submit it to Hunter.
Btw, did you get an acceptance email from Hunter? It had a link where you could accept their acceptance and I guess that's the point when they enter your info into the system. They will also start evaluating your transcript then (and only then).
I will call ***** ******** at the nursing department tomorrow, to ask her about my situation. I know I got accepted to Hunter, trough the admissions automated phone system. They did tell me that I should receive a letter of acceptance in about one to two weeks. Let's see what happens. Anyway, I was also thinking about applying to either NYU (15 months program or Columbia nursing (BS/MS program). Columbia sounds better for me since they offer the CRNA program (I really want to become a nurse anesthetist) It's more money but a faster way to earn my nursing degree.
