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

  1. 0
    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)?

    Does the absense of responses mean none? I sure hope not

    How about ABSN programs with fewer req's (i.e. no chem)

    As far as I know, all ABSN program have prereqs. Only one program I applied to did not require Chem. You will need to check each program that you are interested in to see what they require. Unfortunately, there is no consistency across the board regarding prereq course work.

    PennyS,


    Thanks for the info.

    What program was it that you applied to that did not require Chem?

    With all the nursing programs around the country, it's been quite laborious to find those not requiring chem

    Chem is really not too bad... or let me restate that.. if you think Chem is bad.. wait until med surg when need to know the lab value and apply them.

    Hello!

    1) I don't think you need to take the GRE unless if you are going for Masters or Doctorate degree.

    2) Being male should not influence/affect being accepted into a nursing program.

    3) I also have never heard of any nursing program not requiring pre-reqs. As PennyS mentioned above, every program is different (as far as their pre-reqs) so you need to access the school websites to find out what they require and what they don't.

    If you want to research all accredited programs in your area... I recommend accessing the National League of Nurses website for their endorsements. NLNAC Accredited Nursing Programs

    Good luck !!

    My issue isn't with Chem being difficult, rather, I took bio, and stats during my undergrad, and would like to go to nursing school without having to take a ton more pre-reqs (in addition to A&P and Micro).

    I appreciate all of the help!
