Ten-Step Guide to a Career in Healthcare
Step 3: Take the Prerequisites
Before you apply to school, you will need to make sure you have all your ducks in a row when it comes to your pre-requisites, application, and recommendations. Make sure you have thoroughly researched the programs you are interested in applying to, being sure you have (or will) fulfill all of their requirements by the application deadline (don’t forget the deadline either!).
Explore the Prerequisites
If the prerequisites you need are not offered at your current school, you can look for the classes at your local community college or an online school. If you are not currently in school, this is also your best bet because is it usually less expensive and less time consuming.
The prerequisites will vary depending on the program you are headed toward, but you can almost always count on taking:
- English Composition
- Anatomy and Physiology
