    Well I originally came to college to be a Finance major......thenn changed to switched to Journalism.....Then FINALLY settled as Nursing. I will be done with Pre-reqs this Fall, which puts me at 3 and a 1/2 years. Then the BSN program is two years. So I will be in college on a 5 1/2 to 6 year status, but its worth it to not graduate on time and sacrifice. Then to get an esay degree and be miserable, gotta work so why not work in a field you love?

    I'm in a diploma program and didn't really spend time taking any pre-requisites.

    I had to have 4 unites of English which I had between HS and I had taken English Comp a while back just to start dabbling before I knew what I wanted to do...basically take it for the sake of taking a college course.

    I needed 3 units of Social Studies which I was able to use HS stuff again.

    For math I needed 3 units including Algebra I which again I could use from HS. I had taken a math college class but I don't know if that counted or if it was just HS stuff.

    Science I needed 3 units including a Chem/Lab which again came from HS.

    So I didn't really spend time taking anything.

    It was about three years for me as well at an average of three classes a semester and taking one summer off.

    Stay away from those tricky non-transferrable classes.

    Since it has been 7 yrs. since I have graduated high school, my chem. and bio. has expired. That sucks. But when I wrote everything down class by class, I am looking at one year and a half for pre-req completion!!
