I busted my butt to get what I could out of the way first, so this semester it's just PSY for me. I could use the break anyway after those A&P and math classes! Good luck to everyone!!

Jan 8, '03Occupation: student Joined: Jun '01; Posts: 564; Likes: 2Pitiful that I feel so much better now reading this. I still am dying here waiting. I am going to find something to do productive while I am waiting. I just have to figure out what, lol. I want to use this time wisely and try and prepare as much as possible for starting the nursing program. So glad to not be waiting by myself.

In the meantime, I'm taking Micro and Sociology this semester, and then the final prereq will be a Humanties class...which I can take online.
Jan 8, '03Occupation: stay-at-home mom/student Joined: Nov '02; Posts: 108I am taking Chemistry and Sociology. We had our first class today and I know it is going to be great. The nursing program will not be accepting applications until the beginning of February, so I am taking this time to brush up on my Algebra to take the required NET test. Hopefully I will begin the program this August..

Jan 9, '03Joined: Dec '02; Posts: 23Well, I'm waiting to start my preqs. Since before the holidays I have begun investigating a career change from the Telecom R&D industry into nursing. I found with my prior BSEE that I could qualify to get into an accelerated BSN program. I just need to do all the biology preqs (AP I & II, Micro, Chem, Bioethics).
I don't have much experience being in a hospital, so my plan is to first volunteer at a local hospital. If all goes well, I hope to become a CNA so I can make a little money and so I won't be so freaked when I start clinicals :uhoh21: . During the summer I plan to take the ethics course, then in the fall AP I and Chem. In the spring AP II and Micro. Then, after I have gotten all my A's I will be going into 14 months of hell!
Jan 9, '03Joined: Oct '02; Posts: 5At 36, I'm starting my prereqs in my first semester of college EVER in a couple weeks. Psych, Nutrition, Intro Bio (w/lab), and English. I haven't taken class notes, quizzes, tests, or done any of those other school things since high school almost 19 years ago! So here's to hoping old habits return quickly.
Jan 9, '03Joined: Aug '02; Posts: 15Hi everyone been awhile since I last posted.
All of the schools in my area have different prerequisites
I finished them for one school and was able to put in my first aplication for ADN and will get an answer in april for the fall 2003 class.
FWIW, the cut off for this class required a min of 3.25 gpa overall for the prerequisites and I have a 3.50.
I was told that last year there were 120 qualified applicants, 60 were accepted as that was all of the room they had, and 32 actually graduated.
I am taking Micro and A&P II this semester.
Last of all, my A&P professor recommended me to the "honors" program and offered to work with me so that A&PII will be an honors class (extra project).
I am excited
Jan 9, '03Occupation: CNA/ pre-nursing student Joined: Sep '02; Posts: 338; Likes: 39I am doing pre-requisites now. I don't expect to apply until fall 2004. Plus the wait after that. I am currently in my second semester of school and I'm taking math, writing, an art class and a cna certification course. It is a long way off but I'm getting closer!Last edit by Keely-FutureRN on Jan 9, '03

Jan 15, '03Joined: Jan '03; Posts: 10I'm biting my nails while waiting. I've done all my prereqs. My prereqs were Micro Bio & Lab, Physiology, Anatomy, Precalculus, Statistics, Chemistry 1020, Chemistry 1021, Psychology, Nutrition, Human Growth and Development,Sociology. I think that's it. Hopefully I'll get my letter sometime in the Spring. This is my second time applying and I'm just dying in anticipation. When I applied last year I had horrible nightmares about getting my letter and not getting in and they came true. Hopefully I'll have better luck this year. I have a 3.0 preprofessional G.P.A. and a 3.3 overall G.P.A. How many of you know someone who got in with a 3.0? My school wants a 2.8 minimum but that is no guarantee they will accept you they say. What do your schools want?
