I am a high school senior interested in nursing. I have been looking at many different colleges to apply to, but am confused. All schools of nursing have prerequisites that must be fulfilled before applying for nursing school. Does that mean that I can't apply for school of nursing right after high school? Do I have to apply for the college first, fulfill the prerequisites, and then apply for school of nursing?
What happens if I get into the college, apply for nursing, but they don't accept me?
I don't want to waste two years only to find out I can't get into nursing.
I was looking at University of Washington if anyone knows anything about their school. I'm also looking to earn a BSN.
Are there certain colleges perhaps where you apply only to the school of nursing and the prerequisites are included in the courses?
