Tonya’s Answer

I am answering with the assumption that you're asking what classes you should take in high school to help with a planned nursing degree once you graduate... the following high school courses would give you a good foundation for what you will learn in nursing school: anatomy & physiology (if offered), biology, chemistry, algebra, any communication classes, statistics, and psychology. I got my degree from a four year school and the first two years was just knocking out the basic requirements anybody would take for any degree (like English/Language Arts, Communication, etc.) and the last two years were what I envision your program would look like...mostly nursing classes with some sciences like pathophysiology thrown in. Good luck! I hope this is what you were looking for!

Jean’s Answer

Regina, I agree with Tonya's answer about what classes you should take. I started out with a 2 year Associate Degree in Nursing in 1984. Back then it was an acceptable degree and you could pretty much get a job at any facility. Nowadays though most hospitals require a Bachelor in Science Degree. You could get an ADN and then go back and get a BSN. I hope this helps. Good luck!
