Is there anyone out there who is attending or did attend St. Louis Community College, Meramec campus to be more specific? I have taken all of my non-nursing classes, and I was wondering what kind of... Read More
May 17, '07Yes, I have most of the pre-reqs done so for me, it is part-time. Its a 3 semester program and there are roughly 6 - 9 nursing credit hrs per semester.
Thanks, we'll see how it goes!

Nov 5, '08hey i'm definitely going to be offered a spot for the fall of 09 nursing program at forest park, but there is a possiblity i may also have a seat for spring 09. I still have to take anatomy 2 and microbiology. I really dont want to take my pre-reqs with my nursing classes. If i do end up going spring of 09 how many credits would they make me take??....i'm so confused as to wat to do. please help...
Nov 5, '08They will make you take the ENTIRE first semester nursing core -- if I'm not mistaken it's "only" 9 units on paper, but is pretty intense.
There were several in my class finishing up prereqs that first and second semester and they were miserable that they hadn't gotten them done beforehand.
One option, if you can stand the wait, is to ask for a deferral to the following semester, get those classes out of the way and then have a clean slate for the nursing program.
Nov 6, '08They would make you take the nursing course as WDpixie said, plus A&PII. Micro you could put off and take in the summer or fall...you have to have micro prior to starting third semester classes. If you want to double check the info, or if they have made any changes since I started school call Cecelia Hyde in Admissions. She could tell you.
Nov 15, '08I did not go to the community college because they wanted me to retake chem and biology again since it was over 10 years old. I was bummed because it was WAY cheaper than the school I went to. I already had another degree and just really did not want to take those classes over and be placed on a waiting list for two years. I would have been able to start fall of this year at Forest Park. I applied at another school that took everything and started right away and I am done now. But I know that the stlcc program is very good and I know alot of nurses that went to one of the programs. If they would have taken my science classes and had a shorter waiting list I would have gone there. The clinical students on my floor from Forest Park are great.
Take my advise you do not want to take your pre-reqs with your nursing classes. Nursing classes and I am sure this is true of all nursing schools are intense and consume a lot of your time. You do not want to be worried with pre-reqs while taking them. See if you can get deferred until the next semester and get A&P and Micro out of the way.
