Lab Tech to RN

  1. I see a lot of posts about people asking about microbiology and chemistry. It's comforting to know that since I am a lab tech and I have been for 4 years that it will be easier for me. Although since I took all of the chemistrys and microbiologies for my AS I don't think I would have to take them again right? I think the only thing I haven't taken that is talked about frequently on here is A&P. I have to take that for RN AND for my IBCLC so. Ready to rock that too

    It depends on the school and how old the credits are. Some schools say "within the past 5 years" and some accept older credits than that.

    The general policy standard for science credits (especially lab) is five years, especially since this s constantly changing/updating fluid subject. What was standard 7 years ago had often been significantly changed by current research and experience.
