I'm about to start my prereqs and looking at the RN NS brochure it says I need to do all the prereqs and as many required academic courses as possible (6 of them) and my question was if they say do as many as possible, meaning I don't have to do all of them, why are they called "required" academic courses? Sorry if this question seems silly :p

Hi! Not a silly question at all. Prereq's are required before entrance into a program (such as nursing). The other courses required for the degree (general education courses) are not required, but we are encouraged to complete as many as possible before entry into a program so that we aren't trying to do the program and gen ed's at the same time. Hope this helps!

Oh I see, so in order to get the ADN degree we have to have the gen ed classes done?

Well that makes sense :p

For my ADN program, we had some prerequisites that were required before applying to the nursing program. There are co-requisite courses that must be completed for the nursing courses. These can be completed while going through the nursing program, but it is extremely helpful and recommended to take them beforehand. Some of my classmates had to take A&P and Microbiology + those labs while in the nursing program, and they struggled to get through everything. It's still doable, but it is so much easier to get them over with sooner.
