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.

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.
