Dear Nurse Beth,
I am thinking of going back to school to become a nurse but I have no idea where to start. I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in communication but I earned my degree several years ago so I am not sure any of my credits would transfer. Any suggestions on where to start?
Dear How to Start,
You will need several pre-requisites to apply to a nursing program. They include Anatomy, Physiology, Chemistry, Pathophysiology. You can start working on your pre-reqs, as it will take you a few semesters.
Meanwhile, check with the local nursing programs in your area for specific pre-req requirements and to find out if your previously earned credits are transferable.
At some point and later down the road you may need to take the TEAs for eligibility for nursing school.
