  1. Micro biology vs A&P difficulty?
    I'm taking Micro and A&P this semester, and to me there's no comparison: Micro has been MUCH easier. It's been a complete walk in the park for me, and has been tons more interesting. Nothing beats...

  2. Schedule question A&P1 and Chemistry????
    I wouldn't suggest taking both together considering you work and have two children to care for. I think both are very doable together for someone who doesn't have that level of responsibility outside...

  6. A2 test
    Yes, there are multiple choice questions on the exam. I suggest studying from the HESI admission exam book from Evolve. The main sections such as the math, vocabulary, reading and English sections...

  7. Is my planned Pre-nursing Fall 2013 schedule crazy/impossible?
    I think it looks fine. My schedule was heavier than that this semester and has been fine. Most of my classmates are taking a schedule similar in load to yours with no problems. 16 credits is a pretty...

  9. BRCC point system
    That's the only 3 criteria. GPA of the 5 required pre-reqs, HESI score, and then how many classes taken at BRCC. In that order. We were told that last admitted class had a cut-off GPA of 3.6 and the...

  10. Did you take all pre-reqs before applying?
    Because it beats waiting an extra year or longer to apply simply because you have a couple more classes to take. I'll be done with co-reqs this year, except for A&P II which I'm taking in the summer,...

  11. Did you take all pre-reqs before applying?
    Not every school cares if you finish your co-reqs/pre-reqs before applying. My school only requires a handful of specific pre-reqs from the pre-req list and the GPA from those in deciding acceptance....

  12. grades for nursing program
    Not completely accurate. Many colleges actually base their admission into nursing programs on your cumulative GPA... the GPA of all previous college coursework.

  13. Can't add A&P II yet?
    No one can answer this except the advisor at your specific school, since each school's rules will vary when it comes to over-riding a class schedule. I suggest speaking with an advisor at your school...

  14. Math 99
    If it's a required math pre-req, then unfortunately you'll have to take it. The only way you'd possibly be grandfathered in is if maybe you were already in the nursing program when that became a...

  15. D in statistics
    I'm not sure why you're taking a class such a statistics if it isn't a pre-req for your program, but in any case you took it and now have a D in it. My advice is to re-take it and aim for a better...

  16. Math 99
    At many schools, classes below the 100 (or 1,000, depending on how their catalog is arranged) level are developmental courses. Each school is different though. What is Math 99 at your school? Is it...

    I'm taking A&P II this summer and it'll be 12 hours per week. A&P I during the summer is 12 hours per week as well. It's an 8 week summer semester.

  19. What areas of physio and anatomy would you go over before starting Nursing school?
    I'd suggest starting to memorize the muscles and the bones. Those are two very heavy sections in A&P that will benefit you greatly by getting a head start.

    I'd never do it. For most people it's academic suicide, as nursing classes are hard enough by themselves. I'm finishing up the last of my co-reqs this semester, and will only have one class left,...

  23. i need to make up matetnal and infant in the summer anybody knows in California
    I don't think you can "make up" nursing classes like that. You'd most likely have to take it at the school in which you are enrolled in the nursing program.

  24. Did you take general biology or human biology?
    One or the other should be a pre-req requirement for your program anyways. So check with the program you are applying to and take the one that's actually required for your program.
