Did you already take the pre-reqs for the nursing program? Are going for ADN or BSN? After I completed my required courses I took medical terminology and would have taken intro to pharmacology if I have had the time.

Most science classes are taken in a specific sequence b/c one might be a pre-req of the other. I tried to pair two sciences and to easier classes per semester, which worked out well. I am currently approaching my second semester of nursing and I can tell you that they except you to know A&P, micro, nutrition, ect...

Good luck :)

Speaking strictly about your humanties; take a diversity course, something about a different culture. As a nurse, especially in a big city or diverse area, it is important to have a basic level of understanding of different cultures.

Interpersonal communication, cultural anthropology, race and ethnic relations are all good courses that help you to work with people from all backgrounds. Or a foreign language! I'm taking Spanish!

I would visit advisement at your chosen school if you haven't already done so. They are generally a wealth of information and will guide you toward what you need. Questions specific to your nursing program can always be asked of your nursing program advisor. My study partners and I visited our nursing program advisor last month because our program applications are about to go in, and she gave us great tips regarding grades and classes.

I think ethics is a great class for humanities too. It really makes you question things and as a nurse you have to be ethical.
