You will have an advisor at your university that can assist you. Look at the catalog for the BSN at your chosen university; it should have a list of the courses required for the degree. Your advisor will help you sign up for the classes.

I went directly from high school to college at a university to get my BSN. It was a four year program. The first year was basically filling the pre-reqs for the nursing program, that started as a sophomore. I had been accepted into the BSN program as a freshman. I would think that if you did the same, went directly to a 4 year BSN program (instead of getting pre-reqs done at a community college, then transferring to a university to do the nursing/BSN portion), the program will be laid out with all the classes needed to complete your BSN degree.

I would make sure you have taken plenty of science and math classes in high school. You can check with the schools you’re looking at to see what is required for entrance into their school.

Good luck!

So the first step is to figure out what college you want to go to and find their student catalog/sample schedule to see what the required classes are. Every school of nursing requires different pre-reqs. If you take something that isn’t required or that doesn’t laterally transfer, the class will only count as an elective. The best example I can think of is my university didn’t require nursing students to take a foreign language or speech. So if I had taken those classes it would only count as an elective or, even worse, would have been wasted time and money because it didn’t count for anything.

For the most part all nursing schools will require English Comp 1&2, Statistics, Anatomy and Physiology, etc. If you want to get some pre-reqs done now or over your senior year I would suggest only doing those very basic ones at your local community college or via a duel credit program if your high school has that.

HOWEVER be careful about taking too many classes too quickly! Many nursing schools (like the BSN program I graduated from) only allows you to start the actual nursing program in the fall because you apply in the spring. This is a separate application than what is required for you to get accepted into the actual university and it typically takes place the spring semester of your sophomore year (with you starting the nursing program fall of your junior year). So if you have all your pre-reqs done too early you may have to either take a semester off or spend more money and time taking classes you don’t need just to meet your minimum number of hours required to maintain full time student status.

Basically don’t get into a rush to get so much done so quick it bites you later on down the road. You will have enough to stress about in college, don’t add to it lol.

My best advise would be to speak with a personal advisor at the college from the nursing department. They should be able to help you with anything or any questions you have, best of luck.
