Hello! Excited to be here, this is my first post! I am currently taking my prerequisite courses (This summer semester: Sociology and English, and this fall: Biology, Psychology, Public and Private Com, and Philosophy) and I am currently planning to take the HESI (my school tests for reading comprehension, math, grammar
, vocabulary, and critical thinking only) this October so that I can start taking nursing classes in the Fall semester of 2019. I know some students like to go ahead and get all of their prereq's done before starting any nursing classes, and it's started making me wonder what most people choose to do. I don't want to wait that long to start the classes and make it take that much longer to get my ADN. Thoughts?
Lots of people start the science classes right from the jump. I've seen freshman start with AP 1, PSYCH, ENGLISH 101,and another elective and the gradually move up until they are ready to apply to nursing. I wouldn't save all my sciences classes to the end, then your stuck with all these difficult classes, that normally require to take a class before taking it. Plus the core nursing programs are pretty rough. I wouldn't want to be taking sciences courses with them.
