Any programs without pre-reqs? (other than Yale) - page 2

0Feb 2, '13 by CareQueenQuote from Digthis1Wow. I remember looking at Yale's entry-level Masters program and I thought there were pre-reqs...guess not. Well in any case, I'm not sure about programs that have no pre-reqs. But believe me, I understand your feelings. For a while, I let the whole "pre-req" thing discourage me from deciding to go into Nursing as well. At the time my thought process sounded a bit like this:"For goodness sakes, I already have a Bachelors degree. You mean to tell me I have to go back to school before I go BACK to school!" Lol. But of course I knew that these classes were foundational and very necessary to form the basis of my nursing education, so I got over it.I graduated from college a couple of years ago and am looking to enter either a BSN program or Yale's program (so I will be taking the GRE)
My question is, are there any other accredited programs that don't have pre-req's?
Also, and completely unrelated, how does being a male impact admissions (if at all)?
As for the Chem prereq, I'm going to Johns Hopkins for their ABSN program and they don't require Chem. In fact, Hopkins (surprisingly) doesn't even require you to take A&P 1&2 or Microbio with the lab portion. (although they do recommend the lab portion.) Part of my reason for applying there,was that their prerequisite requirements were pretty light compared to other schools, which would of course allow me to finish them in a resonable amount of time and start the program when I desired. They have 6 pre-reqs total. A&P 1 &2, Microbio, Dev Psych, Nutrition, and Stats.
As for male status affecting an admissions decision, I highly doubt it does.Last edit by CareQueen on Feb 2, '13

We thread microbiology into the first course in pathophysiology that one takes in the first term. This is followed by a second course in patho in the second term; there are 8 credits in pathophysiology in total in the program.
