    Hey Guys,

    I was just told that I may be able to get some of the prerequisites waived by njcu if I am a nursing student. So that means I can go ahead and take a&p 1 w/o taking bio 1 & 2. However, I have already taken gen bio and the human body. Do you guys think this is a good idea? Is it hard? I wouldn't need it for micro either as per them. Any suggestions? I was looking at their prerequisites for Micro and you have to take about 4-5 courses before taken it. Wow. I am considering taking the chemistry for the micro.

    Hey Maryjanefine,

    Glad to hear that NJCU will allow you to take the science courses without prerequisites. I took the science courses that NJCU asked for at the college where I got my first degree. I didn't have to take any pre reqisists to get into those science classes because my school didn't ask for any.The only prereq was that you take A&P 1 before 2. I only took microbiology, A&P 1 and 2 and NJCU accepted it. Although, the other programs your looking into may have other requirements. Anyway, if you sart now you'll probably be able to apply to NJCU for next years class. Good Luck!!

    are you going to the orientation on the 7th even though you have conditional acceptance?

    Hey Miralpn,

    What I meant was that microbiology, A&P 1 and 2 were the only SCIENCES that I took. Yeah, I also had to take statistics and child psychology.

    Hey JersyGuy,

    Thank you so much for the info. Me and my husband work together and will be laid off some time next year. I will be going into the nursing program at njcu, if accepted, in Sept 2009. Right now I am registering to take my prerequesities. However, I will be on unemployment later on in 2009, so I hope I can get this benefit as well. I did not know anything about this program. It will def. be a great help since I won't be working and my husband will be looking for another job.

    thanks again.
