    Do you happen to know anyone who took Physio at SMU? If I am not able to enroll at any CCs I may enroll at SMU. The professor is (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME)
  2. Thank you! If you do happen to come across any review for Physio at SMU, could you please send it my way? Meanwhile I will look for another week and then enroll.

    Thank you for the link and for the tip about emailing the professors. This is so helpful!

    Thank you! I have been looking outside the Bay Area but no luck. Will try Merced also. Thanks for recommending.
  5. Hi Mergirlc, Thanks for these recommendations. I will look into these as well. Appreciate your help! I did look at SMU and hoping to hear from someone who has actually taken Physio there. I also looked at UC Berkeley extension and the reviews were very bad. I also looked into Johns Hopkins for prerequisites. I found quite a few posts here on allnurses. However, the duration is 10 weeks only so a lot packed into those 10 weeks and am sure they go very fast.

    Hi Chau.P, thank you for replying. I have been looking at various community colleges for online science prerequisites but all seem to be full. I need to enroll in Physiology.
  7. Has anyone taken Physiology through Samuel Merritt University? I didn't find any reviews or posts here for science prereqs at SMU. I think some posts mentioned Patho and Pharmac but none mentioned the 4 science preqs: Chem, Anatomy, Physiology, Mircrobiology. Neither did I find anything on rate my professor. I am not able to find any available spots in community colleges and even though it costs an arm and a leg, I will enroll because I don't want to miss my application deadline. If anyone has completed their Physiology from SMU, I would really like to know your experience and if you would recommend it. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for sharing ag1043. And congratulations on being accepted at SMU. Which other subjects did you take through Portage besides Chem, A&P 1,2 and Micro. I really like how organized and standardized their curriculum is. But it sure is pricey $$. I really appreciate your reply.

    For those who had to complete their science prerequisites, did you opt 100% online classes or hybrid mode? Since SMU says they are accepting 100% online labs due to Covid-19, I am wondering what everyone is doing, specifically about science prereqs? I still have a long way to go. I have to complete a lot of prerequisites including all 4 Science prerequisites. Plan to apply in 2022. Would love to hear back from you.

    Thanks for sharing! I think that’s a good idea to save their approval emails. Did you get their approval for each online course? May I please know where did you take the science classes?
  13. Mercgirlc - I am not able to find any posts with reviews for prereqs at SMU. Do you happen to know of anyone who did their prereqs at SMU? I am worried it may be harder than the classes at community college.
  14. Got it. Thanks for clarifying.
  15. Thank you so much caliotter3. I will look into Univ of New England too. Would it be harder than prereqs for Nursing school since it is meant for those getting ready for med school?
  16. Hi Mergirlc, Thank you SO MUCH for all the help and guidance. I will look into the community classes at UCs as well besides SMU. I know it is very $$ but I may just bite the bullet for Physio if I can't get enrolled anywhere else. I also looked into Johns Hopkins School of Nursing online. They offer 10 weeks courses. Thank you for the heads up about Straigtherline as well. I appreciate it!
