4 years in a CC??!
- 0Nov 23, '13 by hereyeeI've been in a CC for 2 years and If i don't want to take 2 science classes on top of other required classes in one semester it's going to take me another 2 years!! Is this normal or are all of you guys out within 2 or 3 years?
- 4Nov 23, '13 by its.jess.duhI was out of my CC in two years, but I did take 1 course each summer so that I would finish in time to turn in nursing school applications. Also, there were at least two semesters that I was doubled up on science classes. I took A&P 1 with Microbiology and then I took A&P 2 with Chemistry. It was tough but definitely doable. And now that I am in nursing school I know that the stress of taking those two science classes at the same time is nothing compared to the stress of my nursing program, so in my opinion, you might as well double up on science courses and get used to it!

It had a bachelors degree when I started my nursing journey but I had 11 pre-reqs to do complete, I'm finishing the last of them right now. It took me 10 months to do those 11 classes.
- 1Nov 23, '13 by Marsha238612It took me 4 semesters to finish off my prereqs, 2 summers included. So it felt like time went by very quickly ( I was done in a year w prereqs) because I took many classes every semester.
if you don't have the choice to take on a heavier load then it'll take longer.
Look into the nursing program of your choice because at some programs, science classes expire, and you would have to retake them
Definitely see an adviser @(*_*)@

One BSN was one additional semester for transfer students because their nursing portion was 5 semesters but still only 4 years for students who started there.That's normal..... An ADN is really a four year degree and a BSN is a 5 or 6 year degree.
- 3Nov 23, '13 by its.jess.duhQuote from lorirn2bI am in a BSN program and it took 2 years for pre-reqs and 2 years for the nursing portion. If you go full time for each semester, a BSN should only take 4 years. That's not to say that everyone does it that way, but you can't really say a BSN is a 5-6 year degree. Not where I am from anyway.That's normal..... An ADN is really a four year degree and a BSN is a 5 or 6 year degree.
I looked in to ADNs also when I was staring my pre-reqs and they usually take 1-2 semesters for pre-reqs depending on the requirements, and then 2 years to complete the ADN program. Again, that's in Texas. Maybe it's different in other areas.
