    00:01 So like I mentioned in the last video, different programs can have different pre-req requirements but they are some courses that are like pretty much going to be in every single program.

    00:12 These are going to be things like biology, microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry, organic chemistry, nutrition, general mathematics, English writing, human anatomy, physiology and human development.

    00:24 Just that tiny list.

    00:25 While you're looking at these classes, keep in mind that many science-based classes will require both a classroom part and a lab component. So you're going to want to plan that accordingly, especially if you're taking a class online and need to have a truly offline semester.

    00:43 That's not going to work if you're with a science class that has a lab.

    00:46 And as you can see kind of from this list, there are, there's a lot of classes.

    00:50 It's about two years worth.

    00:52 So while they sound minimal, like, oh, I just have to take my pre-reqs.

    00:55 It sounds so benign.

    00:56 Keep in mind that it's about the same number of classes as your actual nursing degree. But hey, once you're done with them, that is honestly a huge part of the program that you have already conquered.

    01:08 And it gets way more interesting from here because it's stuff you actually want to learn. So that all sounds terrible.

    01:14 So what are some tips for surviving these super appealing classes? I'm so, so glad you asked, because there absolutely are some tips that are going to make your life a little bit easier here, because remember, I made these mistakes for you. Let's take a look at what class I would super suggest not to ever, ever take with any other class. Ever.

    01:32 Can you guess? I took them together.

    01:34 It was not a good time. All right, I'll see you there.
