What does your academic advisor or nursing school curriculum guide state? Most schools pre-reqs are pretty standard. Such as one local school 1st semester provisionally admitted nursing students take A&P1 with lab, English composition, developmental psychology across the lifespan, statistics, phys ed, and sociology, intro to biochemistry or speech communications,

What school are you going to and have you spoken with an academic advisor yet?

Have you signed up for school yet? One of the first things I did was meet with my advisor and plan out my classes. We have no idea what school you are looking at and we don't know what the prereqs are.

If you are starting out most school don't let you pick your own classes. Look up who the nursing adviser is is your school and go speak to them, even though its summertime you should be able to find someone to speak to at your school

Every school has a set curriculum of pre-nursing classes. You need to talk to your academic advisor if you are lost, since they would know how to get you started.

Schedule to meet with a counselor about your major or career goals. They will help you with your academic goals and scheduling. You could also check out prereq requirements from programs you're interested to applying to in the near future.

Meet the counselor at your school BUT not just any counselor, a NURSE ADVISOR and he/she will help guide you on your journey :) Ask about the academic support programs. Also, if its the school you want to apply for nursing after prereqs are complete, ask about what might improve your chances of receiving an acceptance letter. Start building a relationship with your counselor. I'm guilty for emailing my counselor a lot and she's knows I mean well. she is very helpful. It will pay off in the long run when you apply later on. Wish you the best!

So, what happened OP?

It depends on your school. Meet your advisor. however, I just started and the classes I have taken and/or signed up to take in the fall are developmental writing2( because of my SAT score), College and Career Success, and Freshman Comp. 1( English). MY fall classes are general psychology, Intro to humanities, intermediate algebra, and basic A&P.
