I'm taking pre-req classes for nursing currently, but now I have this awesome opportunity to go to a massage therapy school. Since I've wanted to do both, I thought I would take advantage of this opportunity and take the MT program sooner rather than later. It is a 5 month program that starts in March and ends in August. The first two months (March-April) technique is taught in classroom theory. The next two months (May-June) is clinical internship and the last two months (July-August) we'll be studying for the licensing exam in classroom theory. They cover 200 hrs of massage technique - clinical massage and spa therapies, 20 hrs of Health, Hygiene, CPR and First Aid, 125 hrs of Anatomy, Physiology and Kinesiology, 20 hours of Hydrotherapy, 45 hours of Business practices & Professional Ethics and the 120 hr Clinical Internship.
My question is, how likely is it that I would be able to squeeze in a pre-req class this Summer. I thought taking Anatomy at a community college would complement what I was learning in massage school, or should I wait until the Fall and take it right after the massage program? Any advice is appreciated!
