Self-paced online nutrition class?

Posted

Hi everyone!

I just found out TODAY I can apply by October 1 to an accelerated BSN program I am very interested in. It starts in January, and the next cycle doesn't start until September so I'm going to hustle to get my application in!! Anyway, I am only allowed 3 pending prerequisites at the time I submit my application. I currently have four (human growth & development, micro, chem, nutrition). My options are: take a CLEP exam for human growth & development OR find an online nutrition course that is self-paced so I can ****hopefully**** finish it in two weeks and have my grade by October 1. Writing that out makes me realize I'm probably being a crazy person thinking I can finish it in that amount of time and would probably be better off just taking the CLEP for growth & development. But if you know of any online nutrition classes that would allow me to bang it out in that time, I would much appreciate your help! (University of Phoenix has a 5-week class but I'm not sure it's self-paced.)

Thanks!

I don't know about anyone else, but my Nutrition class was the most rigorous class I had... And I took Anatomy prior! I do believe my professor was really tough, though, so take that into account. I would not suggest taking the course self paced and not in two weeks. I wouldn't suggest to take any class in two weeks if you want to retain the information.

Thanks @goddess9! I enrolled in regular length nutrition class and will be taking the CLEP exam for human growth & development by the end of this month to hopefully get credit instead :)

I'm glad you took it the right way... Sometimes my delivery is a bit short, lol.

Portage has an online self paced Nutrition course.

ohhh, I may look into that. I enrolled in a nutrition course through the University of North Dakota (online), but Portage is cheaper! Thank you for the info :)
