forgot something

You need to talk to the specific nursing school. RN nursing programs are 2-3 years long and some, especially ASN programs, have long waiting lists.

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that you won't be done with your nursing degree at 22. You need to find out from the schools you are interested in what they require.

Specializes in Emergency Department. Has 5 years experience.

ADN programs are typically 2-3 years long. Think 4-5 semesters worth. While you may "luck out" and get into a program right away, many have a waiting list OR they're on some kind of points-based or lottery-based selection system. Aside from the RN program classes, do you have all of your general ed knocked out of the way so that when you DO finish the program, you'd be ready to graduate with your ADN? Consider that side of the equation too. Get all your prereq's done for program and for graduation before you enter the program. This way, should you fail out, you can switch majors, take a few more classes, and you're suddenly eligible for an AA or an AS degree...

Here is what my school says from their website. They have added though a new 1 hour class for hands on practice. Don't know much about that right now though. Everyone talks pre-reqs but my school just requires high school bio, chem, alg w/85 or higher and the TEAS test with a 58.7 (or 57.8.. there abouts). But the higher the class grades and TEAS the better chance you have of getting into the program. Personally I am retaking the high school classes because c's aren't good enough and taking the a&p's and micro before actually going into the nursing classes. I already have all the social science, humanities, and eng classes. They also over ride the Psychology pre-req for the abnormal/developmental psy.
