I met with the counselor at our local community college yesterday. She helped me make a list of all prerequisites I would need to transfer to the State University's BSN program. I knew there would be a ton of classes to take, but was not prepared to see how long that list ended up. I am working fulltime and have three kids at home. Because of how competitive nursing programs are, I pretty much have no choice but to get a 4.0 GPA. In order to not get too overwhelmed and keep my grades at their highest, I don't see how I can take on more than two classes at a time! Taking two classes in the fall, two in the spring and one in the summer makes my prerequisites last FOUR YEARS! I wish I could just quit my job and get it all done...but I can't. We need the income.
Anyone have any advice? There has to be something I haven't thought of. How many prereqs did your program have and how long did they take to complete?
