i am a little confused ;-)
I read here all the time that you guys take anatomy, microbio and all that as "prereq's".... do you really have to do all of those generals before starting nursing school? Here, admission requirements are:
High school diploma/GED
accepted college student
CNA- current registry
- take class or pass test
pass assessment test for english reading/writing and math opr take respective classes
attend a nursing info session
thats it- then they take applications for the following year sometime in january (08 is filled already)
all the other generals you can take anytime- maybe thats because once youre admitted, you still have two to three semesters before starting nursing school....? but from all i read here, my school seems to be unusual- no essays, no letter of intend, no required GPA...? and what is NLN?
i would almost feel better if it came down to performance- at least that way i knew all i had to do is my best. but with this first come first serve business, i already have nightmares of 500 wannabe nursing students pushing thru the door of the college at 7 am on january 30th 2008 (thats when they take applications for 2009)
sooooo..... is my school really that unusual? either way, i am starting to feel like i am in way over my head..... when i decided to go into nursing i somehow thought all i had to do was go to the college and sign up for class...
