April’s Answer

Memorization is the main skill you need in most book learning classes. If you can get a good study habit to help memorize and utilize group study options you will do great! It is A LOT of work but an overall good career. Shots come with practice! You get used to the needle in hand before using it on a person. If blood and shots make you squeamish, radiology is always a good alternative , same pre-requisites,

Things like giving shots are skills that you learn by doing them ... a lot. There is no substitute for experience. If it's really something you can't get comfortable, that could narrow your choices of specialties. Same thing goes for science courses - of which there are many as a part of any program. You will need to apply yourself and if it's your dream - you can make it happen.
