Pre-Nursing, A.S.

Posted

Soo, I failled my nursing program this semester through my clinical course. I left certain sections blank and being on probation at the same time automatically ejects you from program. Anyway, I'll be getting my Pre-Nursing, A.S. and was wondering if I could attend another community college with that same degree instead of a university. Thank you and also forgive me if this is in the wrong section. Thank you!

I am confused. Will you have a degree? Or will you just have all of your nursing pre-requisites completed?

I have not heard of an A.S. in "Pre-Nursing"; that's a term I only hear in reference to lower division students (freshmen) waiting for acceptance into an actual program.

I think it is a degree/certifications that represents that you have completed all the pre-requisites required for a nursing school.

I know I can apply to universities' nursing school but I'm sure of whether I can go to a community college nursing school. The reason I'm considering community college nursing school is because of their cost; my previous school was $5k a semester for internationals. I'm an international student which makes universities very costly for me. I'm confident in myself but I don't want to take a huge risk investing in a university
