RN Programs in New York City (Associates) - Advice/Prerequisites?

  1. 0 Hi! Does anyone know what the prerequisites are for acceptance into the RN program at LaGuardia, BMCC, or any other community college in NYC? For example, do you have to be a certified CNA before you can get in? About how many semesters of general studies (basic bio, chem, etc.) do you have to have before you can do an RN program? Are there any other entrance exams you have to take?

    Thanks! -NR

    I'd recommend doing a little research.

    First, look at their websites. I've found all the nursing schools I've looked at listed their pre-reqs on their website. If it isn't there, they will have contact info. I recommend emailing them for info.
