silly question - but if you complete your science, english, psych/soc pre-reqs at a community college and don't get into their program, can you apply into another community college's nursing program with those classes you have taken? And how does applying into a BSN program work - the same, take pre reqs at a com. college, shoot for a high GPA and apply?
mhm! as long as you've completed the courses, it's in your academic record so you can apply to other programs.
i haven't applied to BSN programs but direct entry programs. i think the process is quite similar: pre-reqs, personal statement(s), letters of recommendations, GRE (for some).
Yes, so far as you have completed the pre-reqs you can apply almost any where....however some colleges vary on the pre-reqs...for example Quincy college only require a biology course preferably A&P 1 and a Chemistry course while massasoit require a biology course, however they do note that priority will be given to those who completed both anatomy courses, microbiology, and liberal arts courses...
So basically any program can accept you as long as you've completed their required pre reqs, even if none are actually taken there?? Say I have my science classes done but not chemistry and I want to try for Quincy, could I simply use my transcript and take chemistry @ Quincy and apply?
Yes, so far that you have completed your pre-reqs and also the TEAS V exam. Programs differ in their passing score to be considered in the program. I do know that some programs give extra points to applicants who have taken courses in their school (ex., massasoit awards one point on their point system during the review process).
For Quincy you would need to complete at least Chem 1 with lab in order for your application to be considered, so yes you can take chem at Quincy and use your other classes taken at other colleges to apply. Have you taken the TEAS yet?
I have for an LPN program but it didn't include science, just math reading & english.
Quincy and most other schools require TEAS V prior to applying, so if you can try and take it. I do know that Regis college ADN program does not require the TEAS V exam, but double check to make sure.
I still have my science courses to do, I just wanted to know if I can apply @ more schools than just Massasoit. Thank you for your insight :)
Your welcome and good luck :-)
