Hey Rosalie, coming from a current psychology undergrad who considered a career in nursing, I would advise being very intentional with your course planning! There are likely some pre-requisites for most med schools that your psych major won't necessarily cover, so you will need to take some additional biology and anatomy courses. You may want to consider a minor or double major to get those covered! Try to see if there is a pre-health advisor at your school that can give you more information specific to your undergrad school and potential med schools.
