Is My Class Schedule Normal??

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I hear a lot of you saying that you're currently taking your pre-req's or completed pre-req's and are waiting for a reply from the school of your choice. I'm posting my class schedule below because I'm wondering if this is unusual. It seems as though my prereq's are included in the LPN course. Is this typical?

    I'm really excited, I'm wondering if everyone's course sequence is similar to mine.

    Fall Semester:
    4 PNE 155 Body Structure and Function (A&P)
    1 SDV 101 Orientation to Health Careers
    3 ENG 111 College Composition I (I have these credits)
    6 PNE 161 Nursing in Health Changes I
    3 PSY 200 Principles of Psychology (I have these credit as well)
    17 (total)

    Spring Semester:
    1 HLT 130 Nutrition and Diet Therapy
    11 PNE 162 Nursing in Health Changes II
    2 PNE 173 Pharmacology for Practical Nurses
    3 PSY 235 Child Psychology
    17 (total)

    Summer Semester:
    10 PNE 163 Nursing in Health Changes III
    1 PNE 145 Trends in Practical Nursing I
    2 PNE 174 Applied Pharmacology for Practical Nurses
    13 (total)


    Total Credit Hours 47
    Total lab Hours 585

    Total Lecture Hours 525 (LPN)

    Is this Normal? My acceptance letter arrived in the mail Wednesday. I'm not sure what my PSB scores were and now it's starting to drive me insane not knowing. Is it too early to call the school and try to find out what my scores were, or should I just wait until orientation, Aug. 14th

    My school requires just one pre-req prior to entrance to the LPN program--A&P. They have time built into the first semester to take English Comp, Psych, and Nutrition; those HAVE to be completed by the end of that semester. But, the program is so competitve (there were 230 applicants for 31 spots for the fall class) that they recommend getting those out of the way early.

    One caveat--there are some classes required for their RN program that aren't required for LPN: Chem, Algebra, Microbiology. I'm working my way through those right now so I'll be in good shape to get into the RN program.
