NVCC pre-reqs-which classes are you taking? - page 2

In others words, are you going the NAS 161/162 route (health science) or the Anatomy/Physiology plus microbiology route? I really want to do the Anatomy/Physiology plus microbiology route so that I... Read More

    I called GMU in August about the Microbio prereqs because they had conflicting information. One page of their website said you needed to take just the Intro to Microbio course, and another page said to take the General Microbio course.

    BUT, when I called GMU to ask about the discrepancy, they told me I need to take General Microbio (BIO205), and not the other one which is more entry level (Intro to Microbio).

    I am now taking General Microbio (BIO205) at NVCC.

    Hi! Definitely do NOT go the NAS route. I am currently taking pre-reqs at NVCC. There is a microbiology (NVCC BIO 150) that is accepted by Mason, Marymount etc that requires no chemistry pre-req. Good luck and hope this helps :-)

    I'm doing the Bio route rather than NAS. It just transfers so much better! Has NVCC changed their requirements on the Micro? When I called in August, they still weren't sure if the nursing program was going to accept the Intro Micro class.

    I thought they did take the Intro because it transfers over as the equivalent to their Micro class Did you talk to an academic adviser at your NVCC campus or MEC? I have been out of high school for much longer so I am sure I will still need at least a semester of chemistry, which would be fine except that chem also requires math pre-reqs which I don't have.

    hello guys!



    i took the nas 161 and 162 route at mec. microbiology is included in 161 but i am not sure in 162. so the route consist of anatomy and phys, and micro.



    i applied to traditional, online hybrid and momentum 2+1 all this year. i have not gotten an acceptance letter on any of them. like what my username is justkeeptryingg i am going to do so.

    i am currently taking nas 161 and bio 141 (fall 2011) and (trying to get an a, i took nas 161 and 162 and got a b: on my rejection letter from traditional it says i should take nas 161, 162, bio 141, and one more course i forgot, to make myself more competitive.)

    i am going to take more co requisites(support classes) for spring and will try to raise up my gpa since i have already exhausted all my teas attempts.

    is anybody else applying to any of the nursing programs for 2012, let's link up and talk about it!!! and please don't give up! try and try until you succeed.

    my favorite quote from thomas edison:
    “i have not failed. i've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”


    for others applying: what is your teas? and gpa?

    Aren't NAS 161 & 162 pre requisites for the traditional and hybrid online program? Why would you need to take those classes to be more competitive if you took them and got a B?

    I spoke with both an adviser from NVCC and an advisor from GMU, and they both told me to take BIO205 (Genernal Microbio) instead of the Intro level Microbio.

    The NVCC advisor I spoke to actually waived the prereqs to take BIO205 because she said the prereqs were there to keep the "18-year-olds in check" lol.. but she said that since I had a Bachelors degree already, she would just enroll me in the course without the prereqs since she thinks we can handle it.

    Does anybody know why Chamberlain is not offering their hybrid 2nd degree BSN program currently and if they are planning to discontinue this program permanently? I had finally finished getting all my ducks in a row and called to inquire about enrolling for this and I was told by a very rude person that they were not offering this now and when I asked if they planned to in the future I was (again rudely) told that they were not giving out information. So frustrating!!
