  1. What are my options?!
    None of the schools near you have an accelerated BSN for people who already have a degree in another field? That is what I'm doing right now. It's only 4 semesters (including summer--so 16 months)...

  2. Should I mention a class I am repeating, and the reasons?
    Honestly, I think they want to read about educational challenges that you have overcome and succeeded in, in the end. Not saying you should or shouldn't mention the organic chem class, but if you do,...

  4. Will I like nursing?
    I think you'd like it. Maybe you can shadow a nurse or something. That would definitely help you decide whether it is something you'd like or not.

  5. Which professor should I ask for a letter of recommendation?
    I would go with the one that knows you the best and can speak most knowledgeably of your attributes. Doing well in A&P/science is important, but it isn't the only thing nursing schools look for. Good...

  6. Advice on Schedule Please!!
    I took psych and sociology together (years ago--2004) and don't know why there would be an issue with it. However, it is really hard to give advice on what classes to take together or how many...

  7. Am i a nerd
    I think it would be nice to just read over the material before you have the stress of having to memorize it all. I think that would probably make it more interesting. And of course it will help once...

  8. Is the first semester really the hardest?
    This is my first semester too...and my clinical instructor is definitely NOT abusive. So far, none of my instructors have been. They have high standards, but they are kind, understanding, and...

  10. What class to take with Chemistry?
    I would take psych with chem. Maybe not the accelerated one since you work 40 hrs a week, but I don't think those 2 classes together will be a problem.

  11. Please help with my decision making, oh wise ones :)
    I would definitely go with the ADN program, try to get a job ASAP, and start paying down that debt. With the debt you already have, I would not even entertain the idea of going to private school,...

  12. Which route to nursing is the smartest option?
    Yes, BSW is Bachelor of Social Work. And times are tough for social workers too. You pretty much need at least an MSW now. Anyway, I would also go with plan B. However, why limit yourself to Loyola's...

  13. What does this mean (credit) - confused??
    It means that you can't take it (unless you audit the class or something) because you already have a stats course. I would definitely get some clarification from the nursing advisor or whoever that...

  14. Accelerated BSN prerequisites
    I don't have experience with those particular colleges, but I got into an ABSN program (near Chicago) with a B in A&P 1 and a fairly good GPA from my first degree. So, maybe it is possible! Good luck!

  15. Pay Grade: Having an AS vs. a BS
    I have also heard there is not much difference in pay. The advantage of having a BSN is that more job opportunities are available and there are more options for advancement.

  17. What do you wish you had studied/learned more?
    Only been in nursing school for a month, but I agree about A&P. Your life will be easier if you know your A&P very well. Knowing microbio has been pretty helpful too, actually...especially for...

  19. Possible to get into nursing school with a C? Has anyone ever?
    I got a C in A&P 2...but I was lucky enough to be accepted into the nursing program a few weeks before I was done with the class. Before that, I had mostly A's and some B's...and that is all the...

  20. A&P2 Micro & Nutrition if taken together will I survive? /
    It depends so much on the school, instructor, and student. There was no chem prereq for me at all, although I took it years ago anyway...and based on that...I would say A&P 2, microbio, and chem...

  21. Prerequisite count from a previous degree?
    It depends on the school. I would definitely check with the school before wasting time and money on a class you don't need to re-take. At my school, the only classes with an expiration date were lab...
