    Most programs consider science repeats derogatory, so taking them again may end up doing more harm than good.

    Regarding this I had to take over pre-reqs for some schools while others did not require it. I was told by admissions to mention this in either my essay or my interview so that the admission board did not think I was taking them over because I had forgotten everything or was trying to inflate my gpa. I think it shows that you are serious about pursuing nursing because you aren't letting obstacles such as recency to get in your way.

    I have a BA in English, and my school wanted me to take the English 101 class--I hadn't taken it in University because I tested out and took a higher one. I eventually got them to reconsider and received my credit. What a waste of my time, energy, and money that would have been.

    I repeated all of my sciences because mine were older than yours. I don't think I really needed to repeat Chem or Biology, but I think a recent Anatomy and Physiology is a must.
