- Mar 4 by yedwards42It's required for the program I applied (Sammuel Merritt University - ABSN program). For some programs, it's not a prerequisite as it's likely a class during the program.
- Mar 4 by KAR813It was required for Metro State in Denver and we were able to take it online. As crazy as it sounds, it wasn't as daunting as I was expecting.
- Mar 4 by Compassion_xIt's not a ore-req in my program. Once you get accepted there are 2 med surg classes in the second semester which are pretty much pathophys classes.
- Mar 4 by zoe92I applied to Salisbury university in Maryland and they require it.
- Mar 4 by wordsofmymouthFor me it is a required prerequisite.
- Mar 4 by adoRNo2b2015In my BSN program patho is one if the first 3 nursing core classes along with pharmacology and fundamentals. We will see in the fall! Eekk!!!
- Mar 5 by cass1320My ABSN program required it as a pre-req even though pathophys is covered in both chronic care and acute care. It's been REALLY helpful so far and the class itself wasn't as bad as I though it would be.
- Mar 5 by SopranoKrisFor the ASN, it is not required. However, the BSN program requires it, so I'm going to take it in between semesters if I get accepted to the ASN program.
- Mar 7 by mmh2Patho is a pre req at my school. It's somewhat of a "weeder" class. Requires the use of critical thinking skills. Tough class, the exam questions were insane. The mechanism of the disease process was emphasized heavily as was "creating" drugs to treat diseases. I bombed the first exam but rallied and passed with a B. Whew!
