What are the best pre-requisite courses to take (as in types of sciences, maths, etc.) in order to prepare for a medical career?
I specifically want to become a radiologist technician, physician assistant, or registered nurse. I am the youngest of my family, and I want to be the first to attend a university. I need all the help I can get to ensure my success in the future. Thank you very much. #medicine #university #registered-nurses #scholarships #physicians-assistant #radiology
PA school requires a 4 year college degree.
To be a registered nurse, you can do either:
2 year Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN)
4 years for your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
Either Degree you will have to take the NCLEX-RN exam (you take this exam after you graduate)
Any of your basic college science courses will help.....biology chemistry biochemistry....and a basic math or statistics course would be a good prerequisite. I would check with a college admissions advisor before you register for classes to see which ones would work out best. Good luck!
You are going to need biology, anatomy, physiology, organic and inorganic chemistry, microbiology, etc., etc. My best suggestion is make sure the schools you are applying to have pre-med programs and then speak directly to them to find out what you are required to take to graduate and apply for med school.
