Nursing prerequisites are challenging to many candidates of nursing schools. An understanding of molecular and cell biology, as well as chemistry, are only some of the requirements. At the same time, this knowledge lays the foundation of every nurse’s future career.
Adam Le Gresley, Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmacy and Chemistry at Kingston University London, Kevin Ahern, professor of biochemistry and biophysics at Oregon State University, Georgina Cornwall from Colorado Mountain College in Aspen, Vincent Racaniello, Higgins Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Columbia University, and Tarry Ahuja from Carleton University combine their experience and knowledge to provide the nurses of tomorrow with the basic equipment for their further studies. At Lecturio, you will learn prerequisite topics at your own pace!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to relearn most of the important and key concepts related to this cornerstone foundation to Medicine & Life Sciences! Wish I had this tool in my undergrad days!! - Ian
Informative and helpful
This lecture series is quite informative and helpful. The instructor is good at breaking down complicated psychology and sociology concepts, especially for those of us with limited neurological sciences, psychology, and sociology background. He is animated and very well informed and good at explaining the concepts and practical applications in clinical and research settings.
Lecturio is well designed and recommendable to the global student community
The content but also the Professor Vincent Racaniello, he is convincing, spacing and detailing what is needed to be captured. - Habimana

General Requirements is a solid background in biological sciences. Typically, this includes at least some exposure to Anatomy and Physiology (two levels), and most often, a course in Microbiology. Other relevant courses, which may not be required but help you prepare for nursing school include psychology, chemistry, sociology, and algebra and/or statistics.
At several colleges it is possible to start nursing school without any prerequisites. Freshmen usually only need a high school diploma or GED. Students are usually strongly advised to take some, if not all, general education courses before they begin.
The answer depends on your previous educational background. Most students complete the requirements in about two years. Those who have already taken courses in high school may meet the prerequisites even sooner.
It is a matter of opinion whether nursing prerequisites are hard. For most, the hardest part is allowing enough time to study. You also need a lot of motivation and the time factor plays a big role. So take enough time for the prerequisites and you will complete them successfully.
Prerequisites for nursing school usually consist of general education and science courses taken in high school. The prerequisites vary by institution and degree level so you should always check the school’s website for up-to-date admission eligibility.
Here are the most common nursing school prerequisites:

by Rosy F. on 2022-06-26 for Selective Attention – Attention (PSY)
Not a fan of misogyny, "nagging wife" isn't cute or professional. I wish i could have selectively not heard that. My eyes rolled so hard they almost evacuated my head.
by Antonio M. on 2022-06-07 for Cellular Structure
Really liked Enough chemistry to explain it / not more Shows that she is passonate about the subject
by Brianna V. on 2022-06-06 for Upper Limb Anatomy
I think the content of the material is excellent, but I wish the diagrams were clearer and bigger. It is difficult to learn anatomy when labels are not clear. I think it would be helpful if lecturers could walk through 3D models
by Kamran Ali D. on 2022-05-29 for Head and Neck Anatomy
Best out there,these are short and precise .Full of information that we need
by Oji O. on 2022-05-26 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division
There are mistakes in the video and they make the material more confusing than it should be.
by Deborah H. on 2022-05-21 for Abdomen
I will always recommend the Lecturio platform to anyone studying for the medical boards who have been away from clinical and didactic. The level of detail that the lectures approach is so helpful. However, sometimes the bigger perspective should always be kept and mentioned throughout the lectures. There are times when I "lose sight of the forest for the trees". It will also help to remind the listener of associated functions constantly. Thank you, sincerely.
by Matthew L. on 2022-05-17 for Head and Neck Anatomy
It’s not bad but compared to other sources seems like it is missing some info
by Cedric G. on 2022-05-11 for Lower Limb Anatomy
the lecture is very informative but it's really hard to understand. The lectures aren't very interactive.
by Babatunde A. on 2022-05-09 for Biochemistry: Basics
Nice delivery but as much as Dr tries to break it down,it looks a bit abstract. Perhaps some mneumonic would help
by Lerato N M. on 2022-05-03 for Upper Limb Anatomy
The different parts and compartments being broken down into separate short videos makes learning an awful lot better
by Leocadia N. on 2022-05-03 for Microbiology: Introduction
I love it that I get a clearer view of the topic. The lecture is straightforward. Yes, I would recommend to others
by Leocadia N. on 2022-05-03 for Abdomen
Information is precise and concise. But probably imagine from another angle could be used
by Syed Wajahat Hussain S. on 2022-04-27 for Blood Supply – Arterial Supply to the GI Tract
too fast. brief with no details or better pictures. Poor clarification of individual arteries and revision to supply

by Neuer N. on 2022-04-14 for Equilibrium – Acid-Base Reactions
There's some good information in here, but it definitely cannot be taught by itself and will need supplemental textbooks to fill in some of the details.
by Laura R. on 2022-04-10 for Head and Neck Anatomy
I like it because its very useful to review specific contents, and is divided in a very good way
by Christophe E. on 2022-04-06 for Biochemistry: Basics

I could relate easily with the delivery of Dr James Pickering.
by Rafael M. on 2022-03-29 for Arterial Supply of the Brain: Circle of Willis – Carotid and Subclavian Arteries
The circle of Willis was not explained. The video basically just says the vertebral arteries and internal carotids give rise to the circle of Willis. What about all the other branches?
by Neuer N. on 2022-03-27 for Structure of the Bony Orbit
Very nice explanation but please include more assessment. Besides objective questions, include subjective questions and give answers and ask the individual to self evaluate! A very helpful and intuitive way i think. Please implement at the earliest
by Alrick C. on 2022-03-25 for Individual Influences on Behavior

The material is precise and concise with clear imaging. The lecturer also have a clear voice
by Aniqah J. on 2021-12-29 for Organic Chemistry
I like this course because it is very concise and the videos are broken down into small manageable chunks. I also like how I can make quality notes from the video. I feel like I have learnt a lot from them and have found them really beneficial. The only criticism I would have is that I would like for some concepts to be made a little bit clearer as feel like I am not completely understand everything. However, that could just be because I'm a college student trying to learn uni-level stuff! I really like the questions afterwards but I think it would be even better if there was an explanation as to why that is the correct answer.
by Mirela P. on 2021-12-28 for Kidneys and Suprarenal Glands: Conclusion
Thank you, Dr. Pickering, for this awesome playlist! It is very helpful for my Anatomy exam.
by loujaine C. on 2021-12-27 for Kidneys and Suprarenal Glands: Conclusion
sometimes we need more details, yeah it's good to keep things summarised but somethings we need to be a little bit deeper
by Mirela P. on 2021-12-26 for Lower Limb Anatomy
Dr. Pickering is a very good speaker and the structure of the course is very good! Congratulations!!!
by Mirela P. on 2021-12-26 for Chemistry: Introduction

Wonderful lessons, knowledgeable lecturer, however ample detail is left to be desired.
by Neo M. on 2021-12-20 for Organic Chemistry
The lectures are difficult to understand due to pace and lack of subject detail
by Ukeme U. on 2021-12-17 for Pelvis
Generally I love Lecturio, so I’ll definitely extend my membership. The video was good and straight to the point but not as conceptual and easy to commit to memory. Maybe a few mnemonic could be incorporated into videos to help with easy retention
by Musiime F. on 2021-12-14 for Biochemistry: Basics
Dr Kevin explains the concepts slowly and with emphasis. He also includes the physiological aspects, making biochemistry sound more biological rather than chemical
by Robinson P. on 2021-12-13 for Ionization – Amino Acids
I loved this lecture ´cause dr ahern was so clear and it really helped me understand this topic.
by Robin C. on 2021-12-13 for Hearing Tests: Rinne Test and Weber Test
I don't think he teaches in a way to grab students' attention. Long and dull.
by Deborah O. on 2021-12-08 for Pelvis
It was very clear, engaging and straight to the point.
by Iman A. on 2021-12-04 for Biochemistry: Basics
The professor teaches very well, and difficult concepts are taught in a clear, concise manner.
