Pre-req advice for any Massachusetts students out there!

Published

Hi all!

I am considering applying to nursing school but need to consider where I will complete my pre-req classes this next year. I am from Massachusetts and would love to hear any suggestions you have for schools (preferably on the cheaper side but if you went to a higher end school for these I'd love to know why) that can help me get these courses done and over with. Quality of teaching and price would be helpful to know! Thanks so much!

Any community college will be fine (eg, Bunker Hill, Massasoit). There is no reason to take pre-reqs from 4-year colleges. They are far more expensive and nursing schools don't care where you take your pre-reqs as long as the schools are fully accredited.
