  1. Hello! Yes, I was able to get an answer so according to the information I gathered my statistics courses from undergrad which have been completed almost a decade ago will be accepted (I can only assume some courses that are over 5 years get accepted). Now concerning the Human Nutrition course, I will be taking (again), the only difference is that it will be grad school level is due to the fact that it was over five years old. So yeah once again, it simply varies on the course. The lab courses online are all accepted! 🙂
  2. I reached out to the PSON ABSN program during the holidays in hopes of finding out if the program transfers over graduate-level courses, but I have yet to hear back from them. With that being said, did anyone transfer over graduate-level courses that are necessary as prereqs in order to enroll? In addition, I am aware that the school accepts portage learning courses. Does this include courses that require labs as well? Thank you!
  3. Thank you Vimmie, I do understand that PSON accepts online courses. So I will certainly look into the programs I am interested in and reach out accordingly, to see what other schools allow online courses as well. Thank you!
  4. Hello everyone! My name is Raquel and I am from New York City, and most recently I've begun to consider applying for a Nursing program. I have looked at the ABSN at the Mount Sinai PSON, The ABSN at Pace University, and the Accelerated Second-Degree Nursing Program (A2D) at Hunter College. I do have a couple of questions for those that may be familiar with ABSN programs. I've noticed that all the programs I've explored have not included the pre-requisite courses: such as Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, Microbiology or Biology, and etc. Is this standard for all ABSN programs? As someone with a Bachelor's in Education, and two semesters shy of graduating with a Master of Public Health, I have not delved into many/any STEM courses throughout both degrees. In addition, upon speaking to a representative at Pace University -- regarding their ABSN application process, they stated that no courses from my Masters would be accepted as pre-requisites (which is pretty upsetting, since my grades in grad-school have been great oppose to my mediocre grades in undergrad). In addition, enrolling in an expensive program/institution at this point isn't something I am keen on doing after graduating. With all said and done, what would be the most cost-effective route to obtaining an ABSN? I am also looking to do some international work abroad after graduating, such as the Peace Corps, and would like to know if it would even be possible to start my pre-requisites while living and working abroad.
