Am I taking the right classes next semester?


I've completed 4 semesters of community college, but I didn't take school very seriously, and didn't do well. I had my son and have been a stay-at-home mom for the past year (the last time I took classes was Spring 2010). I'm going to be going to John Tyler Community College, but might be moving to Indiana and doing Ivy Tech Community College's nursing program. I looked at this link: and I'm planning on doing BIO 231, ENG 111, PSY 230, and SDV 100. I'm going to take the algebra in the summer. I have already taken ENG 111, but I got a B in it, and I want to aim for an A, to increase my chances of getting into a nursing program, since admission is mainly based off of the curricular GPA. I just want be sure that I'm taking the right courses. TIA :)

Most colleges won't let you repeat a class you got a C or better in for improvement, so check with that first. Otherwise, I think those classes sound good. Good luck!

Retaking English should be fine, but just be careful with retaking sciences. Some schools (particularly the two schools I applied to this year), look unfavorably on science retakes and prefer A's on your first attempt.

Other than that, your schedule sounds great.

Make sure that bio you're taking doesnt require a lower bio as a prerequisite, as well as the psych. & you might not be able to take that english again! a B is way better than a C though, so if you cant re-take it I would not stress that at all.

Yeah, I just looked at that website. Make sure all the pre-reqs you need, first. I know I can't take Anatomy&Phys until I take Human Bio first.

Has anyone applied to the JTCC nursing program for Fall 2012?
