I'm currently going to UH main for my pre-reqs for the PV college of nursing and I just have a few questions about the course equivalents of UH.

On the conversion grid it says the equivalent course of Intro to Chem is CHEM 1331 for UH main. However this course is Fundamentals of Chemistry. I then look more and I see that UH's Intro to chem class is actually CHEM 1301. Also for my statistics class at UH, the conversion grid says that UH's equivalent class is MATH 2311 which is Intro to Statistics. However, the other schools have psyc stats as their equivalent, and i know UH has one too. I'm sorta confused on which classes to take. Any advice from people who took their pre-reqs at UH and transferred to PV CON would help greatly, but i'll like advice from anybody else as well.

Also, so far the only steps I have taken so far in getting ready for nursing school are pre-reqs and I plan on attending PV CON during FALL 2011. What other steps should I start doing to further the process of applying or getting ready? Any advice is welcome.

Hi pips9

I did not do my prereqs at UH, however I would suggest stopping by the school, bring along your converson grid and the course catalog for UH main or simply a course list from their site, so that you can clarify which class is the appropriate class to take. You don't want to spend time and money on a course that will not be accepted. If in doubt, always ask. : ]

Also somethings you can do to get ready for school would be:

Get your finances in order regarding how you will pay for school, housing, transportation etc... because trust me this is the last thing you want to worry about while in nursing school. Be it financial aid, money you have saved up or what have you, just get it in line before you start your first semester.

On that note, apply for scholarships, in fact during your visit to the school ask about scholarships so you know what is available to you.

If you have young children, arrange for childcare ahead of time as you don't want to be worrying about this in the midst of the semester when you'll be very busy.

Garner up support systems whether it be your spouse, parents, grandparents, or siblings. Even have them come with you on your visit to the school if you like. There may be a need for them to pitch in more around the house or someone else may have to do the grocery shopping sometimes or help with cooking dinner or what have you. You'll need their support and understanding even more during your journey through nursing school. : )

One more thing, since you are planning to begin in the fall, I suggest looking into taking a class during the summer before you start your first semester.
