    I am also hoping to be done by 2016. However my current class (micro) is my last pre-req and everyone is failing the class (tough to swallow since I have been a straight A student throughout my first BS and my MS). My class has complained over and over that our professor does not teach, literally just sits behind a computer for four hours and expects us to teach ourselves everything. I am terrified of getting a low grade on my last pre-req and not being able to get into a program...

    When are you taking the TEAS? I've been reading about everyone having to take this test. It's not part if the application process where I go to school.
    I'm taking it in the fall.

    Then teach yourself! There are plenty of resources online if you don't understand something. Don't let failing or doing badly even be an option. Don't let a bad teacher get in the way of your dream just because everyone else in your class has.

    @qkh I'm a stay at home mom right now and I'm looking for a job to work around that. I also need a more substantial income than an on campus job... I'm looking into Main Line Health, they have excellent externship and new grad programs.

    What does everyone have left to take as far as prereqs?
    Oh ok, that's understandable. I will also be taking the HESI on July 26 if all goes as planned. As far as pre-reqs left, I have a ton. The only sciences I've completed so far is chemistry I & II, & working on biology now. Have to complete CHFD, A&P I/Lab, Econ, & History in the fall. Next spring is about the same amount of classes then I'll be done.

    Oh my goodness! You are super motivated 3 sciences in one summer... I still have a&p to take, but I've decided to take it in the fall.

    I'm doing biology now and starting a&p in the fall. I just finished up statistics and I took it online. It was very hard.... But I managed an A and now I'm finished with my maths. I have to take some electives and an additional English class. There are a couple of courses that I'm considering taking the clep for. What is CHFD?

    The only math my school required was college algebra (thank God), - I'm terrible at math. I'm finishing my last English now also. Child & Family Development.

    It's because I'm currently off of work until October and I want to finish before returning to work. Plus I am so ready to be in nursing school!

    I have a question out of curiosity. I clicked on this thread because I will be graduating June 2016 from my BSN program (It seems so far away!) but from reading the comments I am confused. Is everyone still working on prereqs or on really long waitlists, I am from Oregon and I have learned that our state does things differently than most others, like programs start once a year and the waitlist is only good for that year then they have to reapply, and programs have 500-1500 applicants for 30-80 positions each year so many students have to apply for several years (you get extra points the second year you apply), they also don't use HESI or TEAS exams. This is purely out of curiosity about how other programs work!
