Anatomy and Physiology Requirement and Planning Help
0Nov 29, '11 by iheartDoes anatomy and physiology have to be taken at the same school? I am trying to transfer from Cal Poly SLO, which does not have a nursing program to San Jose State as a pre-nursing major. Does anyone have any recommended order of classes I should take for the next 2 quarters I have at Cal Poly as I wait to transfer to a school with nursing.
General Chemistry 2
General Chemistry 3
Philosophy GE (critical thinking)
Anatomy at a city college
Then, I will have physiology, and microbiology for the next year. Is there a way I could knock those out as soon as possible or am I rushing it if I try to take them all at once.
I have ap credit in english and psychology. Do you recommend retaking psychology or is it fine because I have a score of 3 in english and 4 in psychology?
0Nov 29, '11 by tyvinOf course you can transfer. No, it doesn't...you need to see what the two schools are in agreement with as far as credits.
I would change Nutrition to spring and change it up and take Philosophy or Anthro in the winter if you can. Philosophy is a course that you should take when you have heavy other ones. Nutrition is a very intense course (leastwise when I took it) that with psych and chem would seem heavy unless you had to do it that way. Anthro was also an easy one for me as well but I really enjoyed it and had a great professor.
What about English Comp...?
0Nov 29, '11 by tyvinCheck with the nursing program yourself and have all the info related to what you've done so far with the English comp. In my BSN program it was higher but that was a long time ago and so many things have changed. To make sure you have all the credits required check with the school. You could probably go online and check out what's required for the program as well.
0Nov 29, '11 by leenakYou might want to ask your potential future program about taking AP1 and AP2 at different schools. I had a friend that was applying to a nursing program but they told her that because schools address AP1&2 differently and you may miss something by taking it at different schools that they required AP1&2 be taken at the same school. How about taking Microbiology in the summer?
