How often do people get accepted to the nursing program when you still have a lot of classes left to finish at ur community college?

The thing is the application process is so early..I'll be finished with all my GE's and Core classes b4 nursing school starts but i have to apply way before i can even show that i will be enrolled for the remaining classes.( I have to apply November when nursing school starts Late august i believe).

By November I'll have 7 classes left (2 which are core nursing classes)....Will they even consider me if i have all these classes left (most are GE's)?

Anyone done this b4?? Or will have to wait for the next application process (next semester's)??

Don't quote me...but I know at the CC that I'm going to, you HAVE to finish ALL your pre-reqs even before applying. And then you have twice a yr to apply...Spring and fall... So if you miss the first deadline...then you can try and get a head start on the next I think...

I would double check your school and make sure you dont have to finish all your classes first.

Each school is different you have to get together with your school an advisor or nursing worshop and find out what you need to do.

My school you can't even apply until your pre reqs are not only finished but are on your transcript. I finnished in the spring but have to sit out the fall semester waiting to apply for the spring because you miss the deadline of applying for the fall its during the spring semester so my classes are not on my transcripts yet.

^^^ Bump what Catzy said. I know that the school I want to go to I'll have to apply by August but don't have to have my Pre-reqs completed until end of December. Unless that changes between now and NEXT August, that is my plan. All this and the classes don't even start until the following May!

From what I've seen, a lot of schools won't even look at you until you are finished with all of your pre-reqs.

There are some schools that will consider students who are missing pre-reqs: usually they want to see the science pre-reqs done, and you can get by taking non-science ones while you're a nursing student.

But keep in mind that entrance into nursing school as a whole is very competitive, and the more unfinished pre-reqs you have, the greater your disadvantage against other applicants. Unless you could give them a special reason to take you when you're missing 7 classes, they're likely not going to consider you when they can choose from a stack of applicants who have all their pre-reqs done. You'd be at a severe disadvantage against the rest of the applicant pool.

However, as Catzy says, each school varies, and your school's nursing and/or admission department will give you a far more accurate answer than we can :D.
