    Generally, people can get their AA's in two years, which is 60 credit hours, so you can get quite a few classes done in 2 years. If you'd be able to by taking 3 classes a semester entirely depends on what classes you still need. Are you currently enrolled in a college? If so, meet with an academic adviser and make a plan with him or her.

    I did, but that required four classes a semester. It really depends on what the program requirements are.

    Then maybe look at the websites of the colleges you plan to apply to get for nursing. There should be some type of academic catalog that will tell you the requirements for the college based upon the degree you would be going for. You can then go through to figure out what courses you've already taken and what ones you need.

    That will give you a good idea of what the plan will be until you can get enrolled in whatever college you are planning to attend for the prereqs and see an adviser.

    I already picked a college and talked to my advisor.

    Ah. Well, then that's 14 classes. So doing at most 3 classes a semester, it'd take 5 semester to do them then. As long as you do summer classes, then you can do those 14 classes in 2 years.

    My advisor said that I can't use my financial Aid for the summer , so I'm wondering if just taking one class for the summer will help .

    In college, I took 22-25 units a semester. The key is being a student was my only responsibility. No kids, no house to maintain, no job, avialable food. And I had minimal need to sleep. Sure you could complete your prereqs in two years, or even 12 months. The challenge is, what else do you have going on in your life?

    I finished my pre-reqs for nursing in 2 years but it included 4 classes per semester and two classes over one summer semester.

    I'm about finishing up my prerequisites this semester. I think you could definitely finish all your prerequisites in 1 year. It took me a little bit longer because I took 2 classes every semester including summer and winter semester.

    My pre reqs were algebra, English comp, statistics, AP 1, AP 2, general chem, organic chem, psycho101, Psych human growth and development, genetics, nutrition and microbiology.

    I would highly recommend summer and winter courses since they are shorter than a regular semester. You get the same 3-4credits in 5-7weeks compared to 4-5months in the fall/ spring.
