Hey guys today was my first day in my pre-nursing course at the technical college I go to,you earn your "pre nursing certificate " to qualify to get on the waiting list to get into nursing classes.
The classes are
A&P 1,A&P 2,College Skills,
Eng 101 Mat 101,Basic Nursing Concepts,
I'am taking 5 courses this term and if no repeats,I will only need to take both
A&P'S and Medical Terminology, to qualify for nursing.I'am hearing horror stories about the waiting list taking as long as 5 years! Some students say they have an estimated start date for 2006.( And they are only one or two semesters ahead of me.)Since I'am not employed and can dive full time into this program other students who can only take one or two courses, takes them longer just to get the pre nursing.My question is, is anyone else in this situation?After completing pre nursing having a lot of time to kill while waiting?I fiqured I would take some extra psy that looks interesting,and advance english just for fun......then I think save the brain power for my nursing classes WHENEVER I get in.What would you guys do?Cause in all honesty if it takes too long I will end up sadly picking another major....I understand why nursing programs have long list but anything over 18 months to two years is a bit much IMO ps I already am a state certified nursing assit(since 92) and have no interest in doing that while waiting lol
