I think you have some bad information. You are talking about the four required classes in "related fields"; Anth444 medical anthropology, Human nutrition NTRS250 or NTRS317, psy160 psychology of developing person, and an inferential statistics course HHS400. These are not prerequisites to get into the program and they won't give you any extra points when you apply. I don't think you need the nutrition class during the first quarter, since I know a couple of people who took their nutrition class during the first and second quarter. Although these classes are not required for admissions, you should get through with them as soon as possible. This is because theses classes are either pre-reqs or co-reqs for future nursing classes. For example, in our third quarter, Anthro444 is a co-requisite for family nursing. Statistics is a pre-req for Nursing research, which our class will probably take during the fourth or fifth quarter, and Soc2o1 is a pre-req for Nurs216. When you enter the program, the schedule in which classes are taken may be different but I am almost positive, you don't need it during the first quarter. In fact, I don't think the nutrition class is even a pre-req for any nursing class. To recap, the four aforementioned classes can be taken while your in the program but they should be taken as soon as possible.
