This is an excellent microbiology course website. It's an actual course, but you can view the lectures, labs etc. It's fabulous!!!!

I like to review experiements that are like the ones I am doing in my own class, just before test. it's a great review tool.

This is a "sticky" from the nursing student forum. Many sites are useful for pre-nursing, too. If you find one you like, add it.

How do you know what part in nursing you want to work in. And What are some of the reguired reading materials, looking to get a head start this sommer. I Don't start til August 05, and have small children. So you know that I can use all the head start I can get. Any more advice I will gladly take and take. Bobbye

My site is http://www.nursingjourney.com.

Right now, I have lab pics from A&P 1, along with quizzes (including PowerPoint quizzes) which I have made to help me study.

I have pics and/or quizzes for the following: tissues, muscles, bones, nervous system (brain, spinal cord), etc.

Hope it helps someone! :)

Hi everyone. I am just starting my journey to becoming a nurse. not sure if this website has been listed yet, but i was doing a web search and found it quite interesting. I think it will be a big help to me, and wanted to share it with you. http://mandevillehigh.stpsb.org/2005site/teacher_sites/laura_decker/biology2.html

it has some very graphic pictures of actual disections, as well as links to other sites. I hope you all will find it usefull.

Hi, I am taking my prereq courses right now toward the nursing program at my school. I am going to be taking the NET test this fall. Could anyone who has already taken the test help me with what might be on the test?

I am also kinda nervous of the classes I have to take. How hard is microbiology, a & p, and chemistry? Does anyone have any easy suggestions on how I should schedule taking my classes? I was going to take micro, A&P, a math class, and devel psych next semester. Is that smart of me or is that way too much work then I should do right now?

Thank you!!

Nicole

I guess it depends on how strong you are in the sciences. I would personally not take the Micro class with all the other classes because I feel Micro will need my undivided attention.

But of course there'll be people here who tell you to go for it because they had no problems. Only you know your litmitations and strengths. Choose wisely Grasshopper. :D

Hi everyone... although I'm not exactly new to the medical field I am new

here... after reading some topics I wanted to ask if anyone from Pa would happen to know how long any pre-reqs are good for?? I have already taken all my classes for my nursing degree years ago. But, when my Mother was sick with Lung Cancer I had to put school on hold... I'm worried because the classes are from 98-2000 I think I will be sick if all my hard work is shot down the drain.. I had 4.0 in my A& P classes.... all my sciences are completed & everything but if you now need a language are finished!...can someone let me know if they are in school in Pa... thanks in advance for all your help.

Check the specific school's website for the admissions requirements. For some schools, the A&P, Micro, Nutrition requirements cannot be older than 5 years. The non-science classes can be older (psych, English writing, dev psych, psych, speech, etc.) They will tell you exactly. Do NOT wait hoping that someone will answer you in this forum - they don't know the schools you are thinking of! You've got to go to the websites of the schools you are interested in. If it's not clear form the website, contact the school ASAP (call them for the quickest answer) to find out. You cannot afford to lose the rest of your hard earned credits! Good luck.

thank you Smiles!!!

I actually called Penn State & spoke with admissions & the registrars office. My credits are still valid. The are supposed to be indefinate but, if for some reason they tell me otherwise I will test out if necc. I don't want to loose my GPA its a 3.85 and I'm not sure if I mentioned this earlier but, I was nominated for the Honors Program at our campus for Penn STate so, if push came to shove I would request to speak with the dean & explain my situation. Not sure if that would even be neccessary so I'm going to call again on Monday to make sure my Sciences are ok as well. I do know that at the local community college there is only a 5yr grace period to use them or you have to re-take them... I am going to enroll in the certification class so that before I go back I can at least make more money as a nurses aide. Which stinks because I should have been grandfathered years ago but for some reason in Pa when I was a nursing student before I didn't need to be certified... but, that doesn't help me now... & once that's done I can work at the hospital hopefully... I want to get as much help with my tuition as possible.. I'm already up to 24,000. in student loans... I better finish my nursing degree with all the money I OWE!!

thanks again for your help Smiles!!

take care

Hi Berng720,

Very good. When you do call them and get an answer, ask them to give it to you in writing. There have been too many instances where there was a verbal agreement, but the person moved on or they have no record. You need something in writing to protect yourself down the road. Good luck!

I run a website that has lots of helpful links for both pre-nursing students and nursing students. I also post a NCLEX question of the week. Please feel free to join if you'd like. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dosamigosRN/

I just applied to join -- such a great idea! I hope you don't have to be TOO active there, because I don't know what my school schedule will be like...
