Hi guys I will be starting my ADN program Spring 2020

I will be taking my prerequisites as follows

  1. College Algebra
  2. A&P 1
  3. Chemistry
  4. Communications 

This is term 1 Monday-Thursday 1 subject per day from January-March 

  1. Human Growth & Development 
  2. Microbiology
  3. A&P 2

This is term 2 Tuesday, Thursday-Friday  1 subject per day from April-June 

Has anyone been to a technical school and had a crazy schedule like this? How doable is this honestly? I’d like to add that I have a child and my husband is also in school but we will be putting our son in daycare, that gives me much more time to focusing on my studies. I have done a ton of research on the school from the accreditation to the pass rate on the NCLEX-RN. I also made sure they were in good standing and not on probation of any sort. Any advice would be extremely appreciated, thank you!!

I'm not going to lie, this will be tough. Not only are those some heavy subjects, but they are quite condensed. My advice would be to knock out any assignments for the easier classes (algebra, communications, HG&D) as soon as possible and devote the rest of your time to studying those sciences. If the labs are as demanding as they usually are for A&P, chem, and micro, you'll need to work diligently to make competitive grades (not just passing, but competitive).

Read the textbooks and take advantage of online resources like YouTube and Khan Academy.

Having taken every single one of those classes, I do think it's doable. Especially if you don't have a job and if your family is supportive. Good luck to you!

Thank you so much! I know it is extremely condensed which worries me a bit but I will surely take your advice on thoroughly reading the textbooks and utilizing online resources! Definitely will be working on the easier assignments first too!
