Why are there no nursing schools with built-in prerequisites? - page 4

It seems like a natural combination, lab sciences and nursing school, and yet everywhere I look the learning sequence is artificially split. So many of the stories I read are "take your... Read More

    As others have said, they DO exist, though they may be harder to find. My program had them built in, so I was able to go from start-finish in 5 semesters. (The 5th one was for a couple of more common pre-reqs and just to get back in the swing of the college thing before applying.) The whole curriculum was built around what we would be learning in the co-reqs, which really helped. We'd be learning the same thing in A&P that we'd be covering in nursing, so it really filled out the picture in a way that made it easier to understand and absorb.

    ok i'm unsure how to delete my last post but i'm going to retype because it is pretty unreadable. the hospital diploma school i plan to attend doesn't have any pre-reqs. you can go straight out of high school or with a ged no college credit needed.
    here is the course plan.

    I looked at some of the private schools, Kaiser, Everest etc. Their 2 year program includes all general courses. I am now at a private college, some of my previous gen eds transferred (psychology, english, biology etc) but were not a requirement. Since I have those credits already, its less work i have in the coming 2 years.

    Hi ktliz,
    Where is this nursing school that is in your area that no prereqs are required?

    Anyone who knows where there is a nursing school that has little or no requirements for an RN program, please let me know. I have always wanted to nurse. I live in Hawaii, but I am willing to go anywhere. The competition is pretty tough here on the island. I just want to nurse. I donʻt want a program that will take so long to get into. My husband is retired military and I now have a better opportunity to go to school.

    looking for a lpn-and program anywhere that starts in august or nov 2016 and the pre-requisites are built inside the program. I do not have my sciences and would prefer in price range 20k and possibly offer housing.

    Might want to keep dreaming then, there are universities that offer conditional acceptance to the nursing program for freshman students if you had greT grasses in high school, however, you have to keep a high enough GPA to be accepted into the actual program after your pre reqs. Just be like everyone else and take rhe pre-reqs and then apply to nursing programs, there aren't any easy ways out to the process

    The 2 year program local to me allows you to enter the program competing with your ACT score, and you would then take the prereqs at the same time as the nursing classes. Honestly, it seems nuts to me. I took a&p with no background in bio or chem and it floored me. I would have failed out of the program in a heartbeat if I took the nursing classes on top of a&p and whatever other prereq they could fit me in. You really need the foundation first. As for why BSN programs might not admit a person to go straight through, well, if if turns out you suck at school, I guess they don't want you to take the spot of someone who is good at it.
