Is hands on experience or textbook knowledge more important?

Updated Viewed 468 times

I plan on becoming a nurse and I realize both are important, however, the universities close to me are renowned for leaning on one of two sides. Either too much textbook knowledge, or too much hands on experience. Which do you think is better? #nursing #medical #nurse #school #career #career-counseling

Aaron A.’s Answer

Nursing schools and medical schools look for two major qualities: grades and effort. Maintaining a GPA above 3.25 is real good for nursing school. Having hands on experience is always good. So keep your grades above 3.25 and do volunteer or hands on work and it will put you above 70% of applicants.
