Previous Biology major


I was a a biology major before becoming accepted into the nursing program. I have taken classes such as Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Pathophysiology. If I have taken these classes before, will I have somewhat of an advantage or nursing school will be completely different?

I mean, it definitely wont hurt you.. And having a good solid foundation in pathophysiology is always a plus. But nursing tests are a whole lot different then what you are probably used to.

I haven't had any biology or chemistry related content in my LPN program or in my bridge program.

It may help you better understand pathos, but I don't think it will give you a leg up so to speak.

Nursing school learning is definitely its own thing. I got an AA and a non nursing bachelors, and I still struggled in the beginning switching gears to learn how to excel in a nursing program.

Thats me though.

Good luck in your program!!
