Hello everyone! Right now I am working on my basic pre requisites for a traditional BSN nursing track. I am in the military stationed overseas, so I have to do my courses either online or at the colleges on base which are normally branches off of colleges in the states (Embry-Riddle, Central Texas, UMUC, etc) At this point I have a list of schools I want to apply to for the upper divisional course work and am just focusing on those pre reqs that those schools require. My question is, did anyone here take their basic courses online then transfer to a university that accepted them? What schools did you go to? I would like to apply somewhere in Texas because I know after looking at their course equivalencies most of my credits from CTC will transfer over. I am extremely interested in UTHSCSA. I know they are very competitive, so I wouldn't mind applying to 3-4 schools. Looking for lots of suggestions here!

I don't want to be spending the next year or so working away on getting these classes done only to find out the university I apply to won't accept online courses (especially Chem, A&P, MicroB, etc). I've called a majority of the schools I'm interested in and they won't pre-evaluate my credits until I apply. Lame!

Share some school info with me :D

I was told all online would be fine EXCEPT sciences... Sciences for most schools would need to be in class with a lab. I'm in California applying to Domincan, SSU, and backup at two community colleges.

Gotcha. I know that depending on which school, you can get a virtual lab online that counts for 1 credit, along with your 3 credit Chem class. Same with A&P. I just don't know which schools accept this.

I took A&P 1 online with lab online also. Lecture was 3 credits and lab was 1 credit. This class is approved for any accredited college especially the BSN program here.

My school doesn't require any pre-reqs except for high school biology and chemistry. ALL classes can be taken concurrently with the nursing courses. That being said, I had several classes from my community college days (some as far back as 1987) that transferred to my current school (ENG, PSY, SOC, ANT). I also decided to do the pre-nursing program at my school in order to earn guaranteed admission so I took A&P 1 and 2, micro, medical terminology, and math/dosage calc. In January, I'll only have nursing courses on my schedule.
