Applying to Nursing School Question..

  1. I have a question....
    Right now I am taking nursing pre-reqs(Just started). To get into the nursing school I want to get into You need English, Psychology, A&P, and math.
    I will have all four of these classes completed at the end of fall 2009. When I apply to the nursing I will already have passes the deadline for spring 2010, so I will have to apply for fall 2010.
    In the mean time, until I get an answer from the nursing school can I contuinue to take other pre-reqs at the school I am in? I would hate not to take classes for 1 year while I wait for an answer.
    If I do take classes and I get accepted will the classes I took in the mean time still be transferred over because they will be other pre-req nursing classes like microbiology.
    Thanks.

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium]Are you sure that you can't apply for the Spring 2010 program if you have pre-reqs in progress? Some schools allow you to have one pre-req in progress while you are applying, so you may want to check that out. If that is the case, they will often offer students a spot in the upcoming class, contingent upon the successful completion of the in progress course.

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium]I would continue to take related courses, definitely Microbio, many schools will require it if you are planning to apply to more than one program. After I finished my core pre-reqs, I've started on Pharmacology and Pathophysiology to get a head start. I know I'll have to retake them when I get accepted into a BSN program, but I wanted a head start!

    don't stop with the pre-reqs, keep taking the gen ed co-req's for your program as well as if time and financial aid permits, classes towards future degrees such as BSN or MSN

    First off, I would definitely check to be sure that you can't apply for Spring of 2010. I was able to no problem even though I had classes in progress. Secondly, I would definitely continue taking pre-req's. I am done with all of mine...the more you have done the better in my opinion!!!
