How can a ASN program be 2 years if you have to take prereqs and nursing classes? - Page 3Register Today!
- Jul 17, '12 by RunnerRN2b2014Quote from mee9mee9At my school, you can take all of those classes at the same time as your nursing classes, but you don't have to. I had everything done except A&P, I and II, micro, and med term when I started but I have several friends who are taking everything with their nursing classes. They are always stressed!the asn program im applying to requires a&p I & II, microbio., 1 math, english, 1 humanities, gen psych, speech. which takes 2 semesters to complete. then you apply in the beginning of the spring and get accepted for the fall of that year. What im trying to figure out is how long the nursing portion is. I see clinicals and classes are taken in the same semester. I didnt know nursing courses and clinicals could be taken during the summer or that it can be completed withing a year.

A lot of people were asking me why I didn't just do the ASN program program because it was ”only 2 yrs?” My goal has always been to get a BSN so even if I did go the ASN route, I would've did the RN-BSN transition which is about another yr here. Which is About the same amount of time it would take to get my BSN. Luckily, I was accepted to the BSN program. Guess it all depends on how long it takes a person to finish their pre reqs and if they get accepted into the program their first try.You're EXACTLY right. It takes the same amount of time. That's why I'm going to get my BSN instead of the ASN because it takes the sam amount of time. The ADN programs requires pre reqs. At my school, it's a year of pre reqs then it's the actual nursing school which in reality is 2-3 years. Even if the BSN is longer, it's only by one year.
