Midlands Tech Nursing Curriculum

  1. 0
    I'm currenty enrolled to start classes in the pre-nursing certificate program at tech in the fall. I previously took some classes before in this program but had to stop going. I'm going back and will only have 3 classes to take until im done with the certificate. I was looking at the actual nursing curriculum and saw that there are other classes, besides the nursing classes of course, that I was wondering if I could take while im in the 2 year waiting period such as the microbiology, prob & stat math class, and the approved elective? Even though there aren't too many classes , I would love to get those out of the way so that while in the actual nursing program, i could solely focus on the clinicals and nothing else. Any info is helpful. Thanks so much.

    I could be mistaken, but those "other classes" are technically pre-nursing classes, as they're required by the program. I suggest that you finish as many classes as you can prior to starting 101. Students, teachers, and your advisor will most likely tell you the same. The less you have to worry about outside of your clinical class the better.

    Thanks so much. I've been looking over the pre-nursing certificate curriculum and the nursing curriculum to see if I'm missing something and the certificate doesn't have those classes listed on them to say that I need them before I actually start the nursing program. Regardless, I'm definitely going to get them out of the way because I want to solely focus on the clinical classes so that I'm not anymore overwhelmed than I need to be at the time..haha..especially with 2 little ones. They will be 21 months and 10 months when I start school in the fall. Call me crazy lol, but I'm doing this for them and will do whatever it takes to get it done. I'm definitely going to sto; talk to my advisor though about these classes when advisement starts in May. Thanks for your response :-)

    You will be able to take the non-clinical nursing classes before you start clinical and it is a good idea to do so. That being said, I would wait until you are almost ready to start so that everything is fresh in your mind. The program at tech is very challenging. Be sure to really learn your stuff in pharmacology, nutrition and A&P. Don't just memorize it for a test, and try to really get into it. Once you start the clinical portion of your education it will make your life easier (or at least somewhat). Everything that you learn in pre-nursing and the nursing program builds on itself. Everything you have been exposed to is fair game on tests and you will see it all again...guaranteed. Keep this in mind and try to continuously grow your knowledge base, not just pass classes. The pre-nursing classes will be by far the easiest of all the courses. It is a long, challenging process but it can be done. Best of luck.

    Thanks. I knew it was going to be a tough process, but reading your post just scared me a little lol..only because i have 2 small kids who will need a lot of my time too. If it weren't for that, I don't think I would be as scared of the whole process of tough classes and such. But I'll get thru it, I'm not giving myself a choice :-)
