So, it isn't that they won't accept UT credits? - it is that the particular classes doen't satisfy the nursing prereq at the new school?
That is what it looks like, chem 1230 goes into much great depth over what it covers but it doesn't cover solutions, acid-base, or energy relationships. The science major track has those covered by chem 1240. But nursing needs those topic coverd, if not is as much depth.
If I were you, I'd consider taking the 1240 (or its equivelnt at your new school) and have more options later. Check that that works at your new school for nursing, but it should.
I ran into something similar. My credits were from a school that used quarters instead of semesters. So if I took three quarters of something (English, for example) or 5 credits where the new school needs 3, then I was okay. Otherwise, it didn't work. It is frustrating.
Hm, I see why nursing schools won't take the biodiversity credit, they want body systems, cellular biology, genetics much more than ecosystems. It would probably work for a gen ed nat sci, but so does A/P so it doesn't really help you any. Bummer.
