Nursing school classes are difficult, especially if you are going to go for a Bachelor of Sciences degree. Nonetheless, they are also interesting and rewarding, and of course they are worth it - they will lead to a satisfying and rewarding profession. There are many classes you will have to take. As in any other Bachelor's degree, you will need to take up many general subjects, though your main focus will be on the nursing schools classes which give you nursing skills, and the knowledge you must have in order to be a health care provider. Following you will find a list of the nursing classes usually offered:

  1. Pharmacology:
    This is a very challenging class to most nursing students. You need to memorize a lot of drug names, classifications, brand names, etc.
  2. Anatomy of the Human Body:
    Student nurses need to be familiar with the different parts of the body. They need to know the basics on what goes on inside the body.
  3. Pathophysiology:
    Student nurses need to know how to take care of people by knowing what their disease conditions are. You need to know how the body has changed when diseases occur.
  4. Psychiatric Nursing or Psychology:

  5. Microbiology:
    Student Nurses need to study the pathogens that cause people to get sick.
  6. Maternity and Child Care:

  7. Management and Leadership courses:
    When you become nurses, you need to know how to lead a team. You will be the one in charge of the patient most of the time and you need to learn how to delegate and coordinate with other health team members.

On top of these nursing school classes, you will also have clinical trainings. You will be exposed in the clinical and hospital settings. There will be skill classes where you will perform basic nursing skills required.

After nursing school, you need to take the local exam so that you can become a Registered Nurse (RN). Nurses without license cannot work. In some cases, people start with an Associate’s Degree in Nursing then become an RN. Later on, they take up additional courses to become a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) graduate.
