- by vandydani Aug 30Hi all,
I am a recent graduate of college and I was not a nursing major. I realized I wanted to become a nurse and have been applying to programs. Problem is, there are very few ABSN programs that I fit the bill for (I am lacking some prereqs that some colleges require). I have applied to a school twice and have been waitlisted twice. What are the chances I could improve if I applied a third time? Or is it just too much? Should I just apply to my other 3 or 4 choices?
- Aug 30 by vandydaniI have most prerequisites done but some require organic chem which I don't have. I'm currently interning at a hospital and volunteering.

- Sep 1 by stephannei agree to do the organic chemistry as you will most likely need it anyway.
- Sep 1 by illusion9376I also agree to do the organic chemistry. I don't know how your program is, but I know out here having EVERY pre-req, or co-req done will put you in a better position than not having it done.
- Sep 2 by stephanne*^ yep
- Sep 3 by AlisonisayoshiDo the OChem, it's not the monster it's made out to be.
- Sep 4 by akulahawkMy advice is simple: do the prerequisites that you don't have, and apply to every nursing program that you are qualified for in the meantime. As you become qualified for more programs, apply there too.
- Sep 4 by octobersongsThere are tons if absn programs. If you don't want to do the o-Chem, find an absn that doesn't require it. I'm applying to 6 or so school all over the east coast, all fully accredited, & none of them require organic chem.
