For those of you who have taken Edukan's online A&P course or CCC online or Rio Salado's, have you ever tried transferring your credits to Santa Ana College in California?
I am not sure if they are okay with an online lab component. I do know that A&P has to be 4 units with lab component, but not sure if online lab is okay.
Somebody in this forum has mentioned that those schools don't indicate online courses on their transcripts as online.
However, I might get asked how I could have possibly taken classes out of state if I lived in California. That would only mean those classes were online.
I guess I should just forget about taking online courses, huh? Any thoughts?
The problem is Santa Ana College assigns me a late registration appointment according to number of units completed at their school. And every time my time comes up to register, it's already too late, all A&P sections are already full. I actually would have to keep taking blow-off classes just to rack up enough units to get an earlier priority registration appointment. I have a BS already, and so have all the Gen ed courses done. All I really need are A&P, and Micro.
I just can't believe how hard it is to become a nurse. Geez! I mean, I'm just talking about prerequisites here, and already having a hard time.
Any thoughts? Thanks!

Go straight to the proverbial horse: Santa Ana College Admissions/Registration/Records depts.
Also, yes we all realize how hard it is to get into the pre-reqs, I've had to take mine at four different CC's in the Orange County area based on evening availability. Sometimes you do need to take additional courses to get some credits under your belt and bump up your registration appt. Many nursing programs require other non-sciences such as nutrition, oral communication (or interpersonal communication), etc. There are other classes out there that will have some application to the nursing field, so please consider that these courses are not all a waste of time. If they at least help you to get to where you would like to go, that's something.
