Microbiology is my last co-requisite before I start the program in August and I'm taking it now. When I began school last spring, it was too late to apply for the nursing program, so I spent the year working on coreq's.
When I figured out that it was gonna take me a total of 3 yrs to complete an Associate degree, I decided that I would aim for 2 degrees at once(because in my mind...an Associate degree should only take 2 yrs). I chose Associate in Arts because when I'm done, those classes will count toward my BSN and I won't have to take a years worth of prereq's for that program as well.
So it seems that (at least by my calculations) I'll complete my BSN in 4 years if I keep on track and take all the classes that fit into both the Associate in Arts and ADN programs.
So....even though I won't be taking ADN coreq's along with nursing classes, I 'will' have to take things like English Literature, philosophy, and public speaking so that I can get the 2 for 1 deal I've set up for myself
...Of course if I find it too hard to handle those courses with the nursing.....I will drop them like hot potatoes!!!
(Gotta keep my eyes on the REAL goal!)
