Any CCs that offer online sciences?
- 0Jul 19, '10 by blondielocksHi all -
Just wondering if anyone knows of any CCs in WA that offer online sciences (the ones that are nursing pre-reqs) so CHM121, CHM131, BIO 141, BIO 142?
Any help greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone knows which colleges offer an actual AA in pre-nursing?

In my opinion, A&P requires so much memorization, that you're better off taking it in person because even some schools are weary about accepting hybrid classes (part online/in-class).
Good luck! I think Everett CC offers an AA in pre-nursing called "nursing transfer" and Tacoma CC does as well. Good luck!

Most was online/blackboard and then lab was a long day like every other week or something. South Seattle offered a lot of these classes, which is great for those who can't attend class regularly. I think you are okay as long as there is a lab class attached to the online portion (therefore usually called a "hybrid").
I believe Pierce College does the AA or AS in Pre-nursing as well. Which I have to ask, what is the reasoning behind getting this degree? I got an Associates once I finished my RN program. Just curious, had some classmates who got it but never asked them. Good luck!

I am one class away from my AA in pre-nursing which is basically just the prereqs for most BSN programs but it doesn't make since if you are trying to become an RN by getting a ADN.
