I was just wondering, for those of you in your first year of nursing school or those of you who can think back to when you finished your pre-reqs and entered a nursing program...which pre-req do you think was most useful, applicable, etc. in your nursing program? I've heard from a couple students that it was Physio, and that you'd better have that information DOWN before your nursing program starts. Anyone agree, or have other opinions?
Did Statistics (for those of you who needed it as a pre-req) do ANYTHING for you in terms of your nursing program???

A&P I and II
Nutrition always came back to haunt me, since the program I was in had a never-ending emphasis on children, family med, and holistic nursing.
Human development, Maslow's, Freud, Erikson, Piaget, and etc. just would not go away, either. I was eternally being asked to say what development stage patient was at and how does this affect my nursing care plan / strategy. :-D
As a gauge of how I'd feel about my nursing coursework, A&P was the best indicator. I found A&P tedious and often uninteresting to study, and I thought lots of the RN training was just more of the same. I am a science and math personality, and i hate to be sedentary. There's not much science and math in patient care. The nursing student lifestyle was forced sedentary study. I am currently re-evaluating whether I have any further interest in nursing.
