what did your school require?

  1. I must of been lucky..I havent been to school in over 5 years, have taken no additional classes since I went for Surgical Tech. I, on a whim, applied to Nursing school (affiliated with my hospital) and was accepted. I havent taken any pre-req's and all Gen Ed classes are worked in with the nursing classes over the 2 yr ASn program. What did your school require to even apply and did you take the classes (english, AP 1&2, Soc, Psych, Nutrition) before applying, is your program just nursing classes?

    Im just curious, thanks!

    My school, a private college, works the same way. All Gen Ed courses are fit into the program. This one is LPN, though, not ASN. This is my 3rd term & my classmates are taking College Writing and Psychology as well as Chronic Med Surg. Those of us who took it at a previous college have an easier schedule this term. I'll be in class 4 hours a week & clinic 10 hours. Not too bad. For me, all my classes are nursing classes.

    My school basically required that you finish your pre-req's first...I mean they SAY they accept people without them all done- but no one in the program has ever met anyone else who actually got in before finishing them all. They were English 101+ 102, Psych 101 +103 ( human growth/development), Sociology 101, Speech 101, Statistics, Biology( cellular), A+P 1+2, Micro, and Health/Nutrition...i swear I'm missing something else but I can't remember!

    Hey, my school works the same way! I will have some classes out of the way, but not all of them. They told us if we chose to not take non-nursing classes first then we didn't need to have a full-time job. I'm really lucky that I live at home since I just graduated from high school in 2006; it will allow me to focus all of my time on school and not have to worry about bills.

    My school's curriculum allows for all the gen ed classes to be taken simutaneously, but generally people get them out of the way first. There is a "pre-nursing" program which you can do first and do all your gen ed, but you dont have to. Personally, I am taking A&P 1&2 and Micro while taking nursing, but the rest I have already done (previous college). It doesn't seem that the school really recommends taking gen ed and nursing, but they will let you.
