Anyone know, in general, if there's a cut-off for age of prereq classes? I'm considering a 2nd degree BSN program. My BA was completed in '99. Some of my science classes were taken as far back as '94.
Hi Mikeyk - First of all
to AllNurses.com! You'll find a wealth of great information and very helpful people here. As for your question, I've found that most 2nd degree BSN programs that I've come into contact with require that science pre-reqs such as A&P I, A&P II, & Micro be no more than 5 yrs. old upon matriculation into their programs. I think you'll find that this is pretty common.
I will begin an accelerated 2nd degree BSN program in September at Drexel Univ. Drexel did not apply age limits to the Chemistry pre-req or other pre-reqs such as statistics, ethics, sociology, developmental psych., english comp, etc. This is just my personal experience, but you should have access to this information either through each programs website, or by contacting an admissions assistant or advisor for each program.
Good luck in your quest & future career. Welcome to AllNurses.com!
