Are all your classes pre-reqs to each other or can you take them concurrently? I have 6 classes left - chem, 3 bio scis, eng and nutrition yet it will take 4 semesters because I cannot take any of the following at the same time....
Organic Chem pre-req to Microbiology which is a pre-req to Anatomy which is a pre-req to Physiology.
I find this just a little frustrating and don't know when this system started or why. I took Anatomy (withdrew) about 6 years ago and did not need to take the other 2 classes to get in so I know a change was made somewhere along the lines of my leaving the school years ago.
Any other schools
do this or am I the only unlucky one here? I feel like I'm never going to get these classes done. It's going to take years to finish my classes....
On top of that you have to have ALL general ed classes done AND final grades submitted before applying for the nursing programs
. So at this point I have this..
Summer 08 - classes
Fall 08 - classes
Spring 09 - classes
Summer 09 (planned to take Chem but couldn't so...)
Fall 09 - Chem, English
Spring 10 - Microbiology, Nutrition
Fall 10 - Anatomy
Spring 11 Physiology
THEN the cut off for applying to nursing school
is in April (classes finish in May) so I cannot apply to nursing schools until April of 2012 because grades won't be in!!! (We cannot get a letter with the assumed grade and current grade - has to be FINAL grade)
Then I have the problem of all 3 local schools each having 500+ applicants for 30 spots a year. I'm just thinking of changing my major.... I could have a Masters degree by the time I get my RN at this rate.
Am I missing something!?!? It can't be this difficult.... I must be missing some knowledge about nursing school/pre-nursing.
