There has to be a third time to get fresh credits, if they are standing by their 5-year rule. People enter and leave schools and the workforce for various reasons. It's soon going to get to the point where all students are "nontraditional," due to lack of funding for fulltime school, and/or career changes and job losses.I would definitely retake the classes if the school has a competitive nursing program. At my school for the BSN program you must have taken your pre reqs within the last 7 years. Also, you can only retake the class once. They will count the most recent grade, but they won't count the grade if you are taking the class for the third or fourth time.
