Hello fellow pre-nursing or nursing students!! I am pretty sure that this topic has came up often but I am new to this website.. so please bear with me and help me with my problem to your best extent! I really appreciate it!
I am a student at Cal State, Bakersfield and I will find out whether of not I get into the nursing program there in July or August 2012. This wait is very very nerve wrecking....I have went from a community college and to the university, so yeah I am a transfer. My nursing advisor at the campus tells me that the closes major that they offer to their students that has most of the nursing prerequisites is Associates of Arts Degree in Human Biological Sciences. This is what the flyer that she handed me out says:
The curriculum for the Bachelor of Arts
Degree in Human Biological Sciences
includes a specific set of courses
designed to provide students with a
foundation in Biology in Human/Health
related fields. Students who complete
this degree option may enter into
several different career paths such as:
public/county health, health
care/assisted living, health care office
staff and food industry.
I am not sure if I am interested to pursue this major but I am enrolled in some of the courses for the Fall 2012 quarter in case I do not get into the nursing program by July/August.
I have a license in phlebotomy (CPT-1) so I can actually work for a bit in the laboratory setting but this job is not a good paying job, it is enough to pay the bills because I am from San Francisco, California and the living expense there is rather high... I have also been looking up the Clinical Science program at the campus but the classes are not what I am sure if I am interested, most of them is biology and chemistry but it is the physics courses that I am worried about. I am not very good with mathematics and physics consists of a heavy load of physics... I AM though for sure interested in the Clinical Laboratory Science program because during my externship in acquiring my license for phlebotomy, I got the chance to witness what the CLS does in the back.
All your comments, opinions, suggestions, and advices are much appreciated! Thank you very much!!
