I'm planning my summer and fall semester prior to applying to BSN programs in the fall in the San Fransisco Bay area. I have straight A's this semester and need only to complete Microbiology, Anatomy, Physiology (my city college as Anatomy and Physio separate), Intro to Psychology, one half of Intermediate Algebra (I'm doing as a self paced class over two separate semesters) and Statistics.
My plan was this...
2nd 1/2 Intermediate Algebra
I was hoping to fit it all in this year what I had planned for my summer schedule is looking like I will not be able to take my other half of my Algebra course with Microbiology at the same time. The times overlap unfortunately.
I'd like to get this all done over this year as I apply to programs late this year and next spring. Most schools
allow at least 1 non-science course in progress. My question is do you think it's terribly detrimental to have Statistics completed or in progress in the fall as I apply?
If anyone has any insight into prerequisite completion for Bay area programs I'd be grateful for the insight. There are transfer info sessions coming up soon that I'll be attending. Just trying to plan my schedules in the meantime.

I also live in the Bay Area. But I have finished statistics already. So I'm not sure how having it "in progress" works.
Where are you applying to? Have you tried UCB Extension classes? They have "continuous enrollment" classes online. So you could start with Statistics or Psych now and finish in 3 months maybe? I don't know if that could help rearrange your schedule so you can fit algebra in or not . And it would overlap with your Summer a little but maybe it's do able since its online? Just an idea.
Here's the description of how it works:
Continuous enrollment courses are offered year-round, and you can enroll anytime. Most continuous enrollment courses can be completed in a minimum of three months and a maximum of six months from the date of enrollment, unless otherwise stated in the course description. Look for "Online, enroll anytime" to find continuous enrollment courses in the course catalog.
