  1. Immunizations for NS
    I was unable to get my records for the Hep B shot (I had it done probably 10 years ago). I got the titer done and the results within two days.

  2. How do you accept the fact you might not get in?
    I remember thinking the same thing. I prepared myself if I didn't make it, but I didn't even know how I would explain it to other people if I didn't get in. Everyone in my chem class knew I applied...

  3. What Chemistry class did you guys take for prenursing? I took biochem?
    I had to take two separate courses for my BSN program: inorganic and organic. The biochem class only counted toward the ADN in my area.

  4. Prerequisite advice please!
    I would take one science course at a time. Since you're just starting out you can safely take one science course and pair it with pre-req courses like English, psychology, math,etc. I've always...

  5. Biology degree then Nursing or Nursing straight away?
    While biology is cool, there really isn't a need for another degree if nursing is what you want to do. A BSN is going to cost money and will probably force you to take out loans. You'll be taking out...

  6. How do you accept the fact you might not get in?
    I got accepted into a BSN program for the fall. Had I not gotten in, I would have went the ADN route at my community college. I probably would have started one year later. My community college will...

  7. Just started A&P1
    I took A & P 1 over the summer in 10 weeks opposed to the normal 16 weeks my college usually does. It was my first science course I took in several years. I was super stressed the first couple of...

  8. Micro biology vs A&P difficulty?
    I'm currently taking Micro in an accelerated summer session and I don't find it very difficult. It's possible that it's a lot easier for me because I've already had all the other science classes. For...

  10. Stalking the email, the mailbox, the mail truck, the college website
    Books, books, books! Lucky you! I so badly want to get mine. They're probably at the bookstore, but I have to wait for my loan to kick in before I can purchase them. I remember before I got accepted...

  11. Stalking the email, the mailbox, the mail truck, the college website
    Haha, I felt very similar. I remember after I had my interview for nursing school, they told me that the letter would come in three weeks. I felt like that was a precise number, so I was expecting...

  12. What made you decide to go for ASN or BSN?
    I chose BSN for several reasons. Most hospitals in my area have went magnet. While the ADN-BSN bridge program seemed like a good idea on paper, I wondered if I would even be able to get a job with an...

  14. Am I stupid for not doing the ABSN?
    You're absolutely right, but for whatever reason I let that woman that confronted me get inside my head. My mom will sometimes say things that I don't appreciated too like, "It's too bad you didn't...

  15. Cleveland State nursing? or stick with Tri-C?
    I can't really say I know much about all this non-accreditation thing going on at Tri-C. Most of the pre-nursing students that I know from my pre-req classes didn't seem too concerned about it,...

  16. How hard is nursing school for the student who is average or below at math & science?
    I was never a math and science person. Science wasn't too bad because I've always found it pretty interesting, but the math that comes with some sciences scared me. Throughout grade school, high...

  17. Am I stupid for not doing the ABSN?
    Wow, this thread sure got heated! I've been rushing to get my pre-reqs done. I've taken just about all of them at an accelerated pace in half the time they would have normally taken. It's made me...

  18. Am I stupid for not doing the ABSN?
    Thanks for the responses everyone. I thought that the traditional BSN was better for me for a couple of reasons. First off, I'm already in quite of bit debt as is. I would need to get a private...

    About a year ago after I graduated with a previous bachelors degree, I decided to go back to school for nursing. To most people, it would seem obvious that I would have wanted an ABSN program. ...

  20. Inorganic Chem Help!!
    I relied very heavily on youtube for that course, in particular this guy's videos: Tyler DeWitt - YouTube He writes every step of an equation out and explains it very slowly.

  21. Do all A and P classes need a Bio pre requisite?
    My college had a pre-req for the course. I had taken an upper level chem course, so I had the science department waive the pre-req (I think it was a bio-chem class or something like that). Every...

    Thank you for the informative response! It's a little over a week until the application deadline, so my anxiety is through the roof. I know there's nothing I can do to make the days pass faster, but...

  23. Studying too much?
    I don't think that's an unreasonable amount of time to study. I generally studied for 2-4 hours every day for A&P and managed to get an A. Like others have suggested, though, maybe you should rethink...

  24. How long does it take to get called for a nursing school interview?
    I'm sure every school out there is different, but I was curious to hear other people's experiences. Do nursing schools typically wait until after the application deadline to call you? What if you...
