    After 20 years in Information Technology, I am going to make a complete circle and go into healthcare as a nurse. I worked at a hospital when I was very young as a NA. I started my last 2 pre-reqs on Monday. I took my last HB series on Monday. Now, I have all of my shots and I just need to take CPR/First Aid for Adults, Peds, Infant.

    I will enter a 12 month accelerated program in Sept. in Philly. This means I will move from Ga to Philly and I don't like cold weather but I can manage anything for a year to reach my goals. I am interested in continuing in anesthetist and nursing education.

    I am taking my last 2 pre-reqs in A&P II & Nutrition.

    It does sound crazy I do know that in my school, you CAN'T take A&P2 at the same time as Micro - A&P2 is a pre-req for Micro. You may need to look into that. If the school requires that the pre-req's need to be finished by the end of Spring semester, it's highly unlikely that they'll give you an extension unfortunately, since there are so many people vying for a space in the program. But maybe you'll get lucky! It never hurts to ask


    Nice to meet all of you!
    Good point!! I will look into to see if I can take all three classes together.

    I just graduated highschool after being homeschooled all my life... I plan on going to a CC in the fall, and apply for the nursing program in fall 05. But, as there's a waiting list (don't know how long it is, though) I'm sure I won't get in then. I'm taking my pre-reqs this fall, and probably Chemistry along with Psychology and Sociology in the spring. Chemistry isn't actually required but I've never taken highschool chemistry, so I figured I'd better take that before I take Microbiology. I'm hoping I won't have to wait too long to get in the nursing program, because I really don't know what I could do while waiting for it..

    I plan on getting my ADN and then working for a year or two, and then finishing up my bachelor's. My dad works in a hospital, so I've been able to talk to some nursing friends of his and that's what they suggested. From there, I'm not exactly sure what I want to do. I'd like to go into pediatric nursing or neonatal nursing. I might go into being a NP, or, go into being a Lutheran deaconess... lots of options, and I'm not quite sure now.

    If you finish your pre-req's and general education classes and are still on the wait list, it would be a great opportunity to work as a CNA. That would give you some great experience that will help with nursing school, and put you ahead of the game. I wish I had the opportunity to do that, but as a wife and mom to 3 young kids, it's not possible. Best of luck to you!

    MY TURN!!!

    Hello nurses to be, I am on my final leg of pre-reqs. I am taking A&P 1&2 over because sometimes B's just aren't good enough! I WILL start nursing school Spring 2005 (I'm very optimistic) I am still debating whether I should even bother with applying to a BSN program (It's a private school and $$$$$) but I figure that I will be such a high scholar that scholarships and grants will just be over flowing into my financial aid account...Why not apply!:chuckle
    Plan B (and the more realistic one) is to apply to a CC here and just transition the year after. Either way I'm ready to start nursing school and kiss these pre-reqs GOODBYE!!!:kiss

    I am so glad that there is a message board for pre-nursing students. I am finishing up some pre-reqs, which aren't many because I already have a bachelor's degree in another major. I am taking 2 classes this summer, A&P I and Human Nutrition. The rest of the classes, about 3 each, for fall and spring will follow. I have faith and have already claimed a spot with the nursing class in August 2005 :hatparty: . I won't have any pre-reqs during nursing school, so thankfully all I will have to focus on is nursing courses and clinicals. I am from Louisiana so if anyone is attending OLHHC, please let me know.

    Hi all! I decided to change careers a year and a half ago from computer programming to nursing. I always wanted to go into nursing but started my family life young and fell into the programming thing. When I was laid off in January '03 I took it as my chance to make a career change. I sold my house and my 9 year son and I moved in with my parents.

    I finished all the necessary prereqs for my cc for the ADN program. I had been taking classes for a business degree for the last 6 years and luckily most of them were the required gen-ed classes for the ADN program. If all goes as planned, I'll be starting the program in Fall '05.

    Hey everyone, like most of you I'll be starting my pre-req's in the fall at a BSN program in NYC. Trying to do all of this while working full-time in an un-related field. It's nice to know we have our own little community, so once the semester starts we'll have a place to vent:angryfire , shout hooray:hatparty: , and cry . Good Luck to you all.

    Great site! Hello fellow future colleagues, my name is Michelle and I currently have a BS in Microbiology (from Iowa State University - go Cyclones). I have been accepted at the School of Nursing at the University of Maryland in Baltimore for the Fall of 04 (I start in August and I am both excited and nervous). Anyway, I am finishing up A&P II at AACC, three more weeks to go then a nice little break - yeah!!! At the moment, I plan on continuing onto graduate school for my MS and possibly PhD, however, this is all subject to change as I originally wanted to be a Microbiologist... Good luck to us all.
