Congratulations! I just got accepted into a nursing program
which begins in the fall, and I can tell you that all the classes you will go through now will definitely be worth it in the long run. First, I will start out by telling you the required courses for my nursing program, and then I will go over the basic courses you need to take. At my school, you have to have: Biology 111, Biology 112, Anatomy and Physiology I, Anatomy and Physiology II, Microbiology, Chemistry 111, Chemistry 112, Chemistry 113 Introduction to Psychology, Developmental Psychology, College Algebra, English 111, English 113, Introduction to Sociology, and one humanities elective (like art, history, music, dance, etc). For any nursing program, you are definitely going to need both Anatomy and Physiology one and two, Microbiology, all the Chemistry classes, Intro to Psychology, Developmental Psychology, a math, at least one humanities elective, and some English courses. To look competitive when it comes time to apply for nursing school, you probably need to take the following classes: Anatomy and Physiology I, Anatomy and Physiology II, English (probably four, but at least two), Chemistry (I would take an introduction to chemistry and then one more advanced chemistry), Introduction to Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Math (I would take one basic math class, and then statistics), Introduction to Sociology, and two humanities (I would take a history, and then a music, dance, or art class). You want to make sure that you check with your university and see what the prerequisites for the nursing program are as they differ from school to school. When you find out what your school's specific requirements are, you can tailor each semester around the prerequisites you know you have to have.
