What Non-Clinical Courses To Take Before I Start My Nursing Program?
I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing your life and creating the web for people like me who have questions. From reading some of your post and answer/questions your site was more helpful than allnurses web site. Your answers were straight to the point. I do have 1 question for you, actually 2. It is May when is your graduation? And *congratulations*. My 2nd question is i am currently taking my pre reqs. for the rn program have not applied yet. I did not know nor did i see it on the list that i have to take general courses as well. My plan is to take “all” non-clinical courses and get them out of the way. Could you tell me which courses to take before applying and starting clinical classes?
Thanks for your kind words! Sorry about the delay in getting back to your question. Congrats on wanting to go to nursing school! Yes, I graduated in May of this year . I have actually already graduated which was on May 9, .
I can give you advice on what type of classes to take that are non-clinical but I can not tell you the exact classes to take because each nursing program is completely different in what they require. For instance my nursing school didn’t require me to take physics but one of the other nursing schools about 20 miles from my nursing school required their nursing student to take it. So it really depends on what your nursing school curriculum decides. I suggest you go your advisor and ask what non-clinical classes you can take.
Here are some class I think you could get ahead a get done that are not clinical: Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Nursing Theory and Research, Pathophysiology, Health Assessment, English, History, any Physical education class, Math, and all your electives. That should help give you a start. However, your nursing program may not require you to take any of those course so I would just check with your advisor because they are usually the ones who can point you in the right direction.
