My goal has always been to become a nurse. Although a little late I'm just getting started and will be applying to community colleges to start working on my prerequisites before applying to the nursing programs
. Realistically, when should I plan on applying to a nursing program? and How long does it usually take to finish your prerequisties? I am hoping to get started on them this January and would like to move quickly into a program. Any advice would be appreciated.

i'm not sure about other colleges. i know to some it matters a lot on whether you get accepted but for me i applied and got in without them even having my act scores. i was advised to take the act back in hs instead since i'm not a math person. somehow we ordered them sent and they never showed up so my records (both community college and university) don't have them on there.
as for studying, if you're a visual learner then flashcards/notecards are good. if you learn better by listening then maybe ask if you can record the lectures and listen to them. there are so many studying tips in the student threads on here that will help.
i have one more question. i have not yet taken my sat test. i actually got into acc through the entrance exam. i do plan on taking it soon but everytime it gets close i chicken out. just how important is your sat score?
