Good day, tasha92337:

You are asking good questions, but the questions are difficult to answer without knowing specifics. Are you a full time or part time student? What other classes are you taking at the same time? Do you love science so much that you would consider yourself a science geek?

Thank you.

Can you go to a CC and take more than 1 science? CC is way cheaper and is the way to go for me.

I don't know what you mean by 'integrated science classes', but that doesn't sound like a standard (transferable) course to me. If you take classes at an accredited community college, they are fully transferable.

I had changed my work schedule from full time to per diem so I have more free time.

I would prefer to be a full time student since I changed my work schedule from full time to per diem. I would take only the science classes but at the community college I'm attending the couneslor said I have to take the science classes one at a time, making my pre req time 1.5 years.

I'm not a fan of science and need to seek a common interest. I am taking chemistry and with the help of a tutor and study partner, my grade improved significantly.

That's what I though but my counselor said I have to tke them one at a time. I'm a little cofused on why. I am on the wait list at another community college for a science course that cover anat/phy/micro in one semester but its a hour commute.

They are popular accredited schools in CA . One in ontario and the other in whittier that offer fast track science courses, but cost an arm and a leg without financial aid services

I am also signing up to test for a few ROP lvn programs next month for the jan 2015 program to stay busy. So I'm trying to see how I can utilize this fall semester because I still need to take all science classes and gen ed classes. So far I have taken intro chemistry, eng1A, political science and public speaking. I have a 2.2 Gpa and need at least 2.5-2.8gpa to apply at most adn programs at a community college scools. I need to retake math(low grade) and science classes from previous expired and also had low grade. So I need to retake those too. I was trying to not have a major case load if I were to go the lvn-rn route.

Also do u know if u bridge lvn-rn, is it a requirement to have one year lvn working exp?

If you are working plus not a fan of science, then one science at a time is probably the right way to go.

Thank you.
