What should I do? What do you all suggest?

Asked Chicago, Illinois

I'm 18, a senior in high school. I am so stressed because well its senior year. I don't work but I have been working hard to finish my common app. I know I want to be a Pre-Nursing, Nursing BSN/RN major but many schools dont have it. Many people suggest I should take my basic classes first. #senior2019 #schoolstress #nursing #healthcare #college #lifechallange

Hi Jennifer,

My cousin applied for a BSN degree and I think there are quite a few programs out there if you're open to different locations. Check out this article- https://www.valuecolleges.com/rankings/best-value-bsn-programs/ - it's a great starting point as far as showing you the options that are out there.

If none of those schools meet your needs outside of the BSN, you could major in a different degree (probably a science-type major would be best) and then pursue a graduate degree in nursing. I know that may feel like putting off what you want to study, but it can also provide you with a chance to think more about specific nursing specialities you may want to look into.

With whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck!

Hi Jennifer,

First piece of advice is Don't Stress. Second, make a plan and write down how to accomplish your goal of becoming a BSN/RN. Third, start using the internet to search for the following things: List of schools where you can go to do your prerequisites. List of prerequisites you need to take,. List of schools across the nation that accept nursing students without pre-requisites and schools that need pre-requisites. With information you can start planning and working towards your goal. Like Abby mentioned to you in the previous post, there are several places you can write off to for acceptance. Sometimes you may have to go a little farther than expected. Your letter to the school will matter as well. Prepare yourself, work hard, don't give up and you will be able to get what you want out of life. Best Wishes. Looking forward to having you as a RN in the field!
