Regarding a BSN, I thought well I don't know if this is how it works but my teacher told me that the prerequisites are completed within the four year degree, leaving only two years left for the BSN degree. Is this true? Or is it actually two years of prerequisites and then the 4 year degree?
I am a high school student looking to get into a nursing school in Texas.
From my experience:
Some colleges offer a BSN Program
If this is the case then the pre-requisites to met qualifications to enter into the Nursing Program need to be done prior to beginning the Program.
English 101 (entry Level)
Math 101 (Entry Level)
There is usually a list of courses that need to be completed prior to entrance into the Program online or speaking with a counselor at the school you are interested in.
Then, when you get into the program there are additional courses that also (outside of the specific Nursing Program Courses) that need to be completed.
This courses can be taken in conjunction to Nursing Program Courses, or can be completed prior to the entrance of the nursing program.
It is a little confusing, but hope this helps answer your question.
I would recommend speaking with an Educational Counselor to map out your specific education plan.
Good Luck with everything and wish you the best
I would advise going to a school where you get into the RN program at the start, as some make you apply after 2 yrs in. Avoid for-profit programs. Personally I like early clinical exposure and elective opportunities. Check test pass rates too. Always thought 3yr BSN looked like a good idea, you learn most stuff on the job anyway.
