So you may have noticed that there are a lot,
and I mean a lot, of science and math classes
on the prerequisite list.
And let me tell you, taking them all at the
same time, that is not advised
unless you are a science or a math wizard.
And then it's probably likely that you'll
want to spend all like your English and
whatever classes, spread those out because
math is your jam.
But most of us aren't unicorns like that.
So don't be me and think, Oh, I don't want
to take those math and science classes.
I will just push them until the end.
You will cry in your final exam, and it will
Do not be me.
However, if you do love science and math
classes, then, I mean, by all means.
Maybe spread them out in, like, your English
and your psychology classes, because to
you those might be more difficult.
Whatever classes you struggle with
personally the most, I want you to limit
yourself to only taking one or two of those
a semester, no matter how
it's going to fall or do whatever.
Just pace yourself.
And regardless of if you are a math or a
science person or an English person or a
psych person, there are definitely certain
classes that are just
wildly difficult for pretty much everyone.
You are probably not going to want to
combine microbiology and anatomy
because those were both probably two of the
toughest classes for most people.
They're very, like, memorization heavy,
which makes it rough.
And then statistics is also another one
that's particularly difficult for like a
non-math person like myself.
And I also found chemistry to be quite
I feel like this list is everything.
It's the whole.
It's fine, it's fine. It's, like, the whole
But, very much, I would not combine those.
You may want to spread those out and like
give each semester one of those little gifts
if you can, and notice that some of the
pre-req classes will actually require
For example, if you have to take chemistry,
you have to take classes that will get you
ready for chemistry, and then you have to
take chemistry before you can take
biochemistry and organic chemistry.
So just make sure to take a few moments and
sit down either on your own or with a
guidance counselor or your spreadsheet and
plan out all of these semesters for yourself
, so you can set yourself up for the most
success, and you're not combining those nasty
classes. A little bit of planning here is
going to save you a boatload of tears later.
Just trust me. I've been there.
So now you have your pre-reqs figured out,
It's been a few semesters or years, whatever
route you're going and you are getting
ready for the magic that is the nursing
school entrance exam.
Because friends, I promise you, you will get
to that point.
You will. I promise you can do hard things.
So like, look at those exams.
Let's see what the difference is between
What they're all about. Ready, set, let's
