For students going into Nursing, we encourage students to take both PSY 1010 & PSY 1100, since some colleges require both as prerequisites for their Nursing program. Some colleges may require one while others require the other. Since most high school students when graduating do not know which college nursing or other pre-health programs they will get accepted into, students will be able to complete both while in high school. PSY 1010 also fulfills a Social Science requirement for the Regents Scholarship, while PSY 1100 is a major requirement for most college Elementary Education programs.
