Hello nursing students out there!

I had a question about when to take my A&P classes (pre-reqs for nursing school). I was thinking of starting them this coming fall & there are a total of 3 of them, but then again there is a wait list at the school I'm going that I may not get in until 2009. If I take them & have a lag of over a year before actual nursing program, will I forget everything I need to know? How important is it to take those particular classes as close to the actual nursing program as possible? Or will it be OK to take them this far out?

Are you a credible source? Add your Credentials, Experience, etc.

:studyowl: Take it now/soon but don't sell back your books. Then when an organ system comes up in lecture, pull out your book & lab manual and review. This will reinforce what you've already learned and you'll be able to glean the key elements that are part of the disease process. If you already know that your deadline to get your prereqs out of the way is 2009, I would urge you to take patho, nutrition, micro, and chem.

I would definately take the A&P classes while you are waiting and like sodiumH2Otaffy said keep your books for reference.

But also check how long your science classes are good for at the school you are attending as well so there are no surprises down the road. I personally beleive getting those sciences done first is a HUGE releif, besides many of your nursing classes are very related to your sciences and build off one another.

Good Luck you will do great!
