Would I be able to be a college athlete as well as pursue a nursing degree?

I know being a college athlete requires a big time commitment but how much time does it compare to a nursing degree. I really want to be working in the medical field and I feel that nursing would be a great and secure career. Would I be able to balance out the rigorous classes for a nursing degree as well as a college athletic career? #college #doctor #nursing #medical #college-major

Hi Alec-

Many schools offer programs for their athletes to ensure they are able to succeed both as students, and athletes! Athletic codes still exist at a collegiate level, so for the team you may consider playing on, your grades are as important to them as they are to you.

If this is something you are interested in and looking into, I would encourage you to reach out to the schools you have interest in to understand their study programs. Many offer tutoring, study tables, designated team study times, etc.

Best of luck!

You will need to check out the nursing program... some programs have strict schedules. You need to be able to juggle the 2.. You can accomplish anything you put your mind to! I went to nursing school, worked and had children. Good Luck!!!
