I used assist.org and UC Davis’s sample prerequisites, which is linked below their list of prerequisites, to match my classes to the requirements. I took these courses at Sierra College in Rocklin.
Under communication prerequisites it notes group, verbal *and written principles. I included a screen shot of it stating public speaking as part of the verbal, not group requirement. It's also separated on NursingCAS when you fill out the app, it gives you an opportunity to fill in 3 different courses for the overall communication requirement. If you submitted your app without filling in a public speaking, or something similar, you must have opted out for assigning a course. I’m unsure if this will still place you in the running for the program because from my understanding, the change from last year and how the prerequisites were laid out, it seemed like you needed 3 different classes. I never actually contacted the program so I very well could be wrong.
Hope this helps!
