Hi All,

I’m transitioning into nursing and will be applying to Cal State Dominguez’s MEPN program for fall 2010 entry. I will attend the November workshop to get the portfolio process started. My question to all of you that have applied to this program or who are currently in it, how many of the prereqs can you have outstanding at the time you submit your application? I have completed many of the prereqs during undergrad; however, I still have the sciences to complete. I’m currently taking (fall ’09) anatomy and speech. I plan to take microbiology and pathophysiology in spring ’10, and lastly finish with physiology in summer ’10. So as you can see, I will be down to the wire in having my last needed prereq complete right before the fall 2010 cohort begins.

I have emailed and left someone messages asking if this is ok. However, I have yet to hear from him. I’m sure I will have all of my questions answered during the workshop; however, I want to know if I’m on the right path, because if it is the case that I have to have all of the prereqs complete by the time I submit my application, then I will clearly have to push back applying for another year, and the thought of that saddens me.

Any advice or answers to the above is greatly appreciated! Also, I know for many of the accelerated, entry to nursing/MSN programs, you can sit for the NCLEX after a year and then return to complete the remaining masters’ courses. Is this the case with Dominguez’s MEPN program, or do you have to wait to take the test until after you have completed the entire program?

Thanking you in advance for the insight!
