Hi Shibaowner, I personally like your articles and admire your journey into nursing. However, I think that the initial remark you made here was rude.
I agree with you that there needs to be a strong cognitive foundation for any student before entering any nursing program, but the person initiating the thread was merely asking for schoool with a lower demand for pre-reqs. That does not imply that she is lazy or that she wants a program that cheap and easy...
In fact, JH does not require many prereqs - certainly not more than many schools in NY. Neither does Georgetown or GW.
I rather think that these universities have found efficiencies in the way in which they deliver their classes or that based on experience, students have been successful through the course of the program without a large amount of prereqs.
I replied to your comment I was surprised to see such as strong pushback for an inquiry like this?
Yes, it's expected that someone will offend you while you are a nurse - everyone knows that.
But before anyone asks you to develop a thick skin, we should instead ask ourselves if being impolite or rude is not acceptable in other professions, why is it acceptable in nursing?
I'll keep reading your articles regardless, this is just food for thought.
