Okay, I am starting college for my pre reqs for RN and I am confused
I have never been to college before and this whole pre req stuff is confusing the stew out of me. I have a few questions if you all don't mind helping me out because I am lost.
1.) Why do colleges ( At least this one) make students take pre reqs that aren't required? I a, not talking about intermidiate classes. I was talking on the phone to the college advisors and she said if I didn't hurry up and get my schedual for my classes the classes would be filled and I would be stuck taking classes that aren't required????? Why would people even take them if its not even going towards anything?? I don't get it.
2.) What is the estimated full time stud hours? (BTW I am going next week to speak to an advisor and just thought I could get some insight here) Is it M-F 8:00-3:00 or is college diffrent than regular school?
3.) I was looking on the college websit and it said "Pre Reqs required for nursing" Here they are....

Is the NUR 111, 112,113,211, 212 and 213 The acual nursing program????? Or is all this just the pre reqs to get in the RN????? ( okay, I know I am starting to sound very ignorant when it comes to college pre req's but the best way I know to learn it is to ask.)
Thanks to all and any that took time out to help me understand this. I really do appreciate it.
