    Hopeful Normandale Pre-Nursing Student! Please help!

    I didn't apply to NDCC's nursing program, I applied and got into St Kate's MSNEL program which I start next month, but I know a few people who got in at NDCC and are finishing up their first semester. They all say it's busy but going well!

    U of MN or St. Catherine's MSN program?

    It was odd, I first received an email from St Kate's IT team with my student ID and directions to log into Kateway. I was like, "ok... does this mean I got in?" Two days later I got the letter in the mail :)

    U of MN or St. Catherine's MSN program?

    I submitted mid-April. Wanted to get my decision as early as possible so I could look at other options in case I didn't get in!

    That's awesome! Maybe we will be classmates. I just submitted my application a few days ago... so nervous!
  7. I took Anatomy last semester and aced it with a 98%. I knew the material so, so well. Physiology is proving to be a different animal. We've had three lectures so far on the first four chapters of our textbook, which are supposed to be "review" for us. I am completely lost. I have very little background in organic chemistry and college-level biology. The last biology course I took was honors bio as a sophomore in high school, 14 years ago, and the chemistry prereq I took (and aced) was mostly inorganic chemistry. Our professor has a reputation for being a brilliant lecturer, and he is, but he expects that we already know all the detailed steps of the Krebs cycle by heart. He expects that we know the general structure of all biomolecules by heart. I feel stupid in his class and that is a completely new experience for me...! Has anyone else felt this way at the beginning of Physiology and gone on to have a good grade?

    Entry Level Masters in Nursing: Stats

    I'm also looking into a MSNEL program. There are three in the area I live, and all three require different prerequisites, have different program lengths, and place an emphasis on different things. One is pretty much all academic and volunteer experience (and requires pathology as a prerequisite), one is academic and character-based, and one is a little bit of both. I have little to no volunteer experience, since I have a music degree, work part time, and stay home with two small children (so no time to volunteer). I'm applying to the second program because it's a well-respected nursing school, they require the fewest prerequisites, and they want a very diverse cohort with a wide range of life experiences. So, it really depends on the program! Do you have stats on the most recent cohort of the program you want to apply to?

    Has anyone every taken A&P2 and Microbiology at the same time?

    I am currently in Physiology (at my school A&P are split) and Microbiology. I also have 2 kids, ages 5 and 2, so they're home all day with me and I work part time in the evenings. Study time is precious and fleeting. Managed a high A in Anatomy though, so I'm hoping it's doable! Good luck to you all!

    I'm doing some necromancy here as this thread popped up on my search. I'm finishing prerequisites at Normandale this semester and applying to St. Kate's for Spring 2019; also looking at the U of M. Would be happy to hear about any of your results!

    Did you end up getting in? I'm taking prerequisites at Normandale and am taking Phys and MicroBio this semester.
