Christina’s Answer

Hello Yuridia,
I am a nurse practitioner. Everyone always told me I should be a nurse so, in junior high school, I took a job as a volunteer in a Nursing home. I hated it and thought I could never be a nurse. However, after my first year in college (my major at that time was international relations), I took a summer job as a camp counselor in a camp for children with juvenile diabetes. I loved it. It is there that I saw the amazing intellectual challenge of nursing/medicine and the reward of seeing people with health issues do well with your care. If I were you, I would seek out opportunities to expose yourself to all aspects of the health profession to see if it is something that excites you. If so, nursing is a great career, as are many other careers in the health field. You just have to find the area that interests you the most (which may change with time) and pursue it.

Hello Yuridia,

Hope all is well. I am actually not an accountant but based on my sister's experience, I can recommend you the following:

Why do you want to be a nurse and do you think you are able to handle the challenges associated with it? For example, I honestly can not see a person injured, bleeding, etc. and therefore I did not even think about becoming a nurse.

In order for you to understand the career and have more experience, I highly recommend for you to take classes that your school offers in order to become a CNA - certified nurse assistant. This will give you a real life experience on what to expect and will also get to see more things that the books won't be able to teach you.

While I want you to become an RN, I recommend this first baby step to see if you actually like the work. After my sister completed her CNA program in high school, she did not like it enough in order to do it for the rest of her life. She would did not like the idea of seeing sick people suffer, etc and therefore decided to pursue an accounting career.

If your high school has the CNA program, I highly encourage for you to attend those classes. Also, make sure that you ask your advisor/teachers if there are any partnerships with any local community colleges. Some high schools have these agreements with community colleges where the students can attend these classes at little to no cost and it will count towards college credits! Overall, just make sure your are being vocal about your future aspirations in order to get on the right track for you to become a registered nurse!

Hope this answers your question! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!

Renea’s Answer

The university or program you select will have what classes are required for you to take. There is no pick and choose to end up with the wrong class or anything. If you enroll in the nursing program at the school or university those will be the classes you will be required to take and pass, period.

Be diligent in your studies. Time is money!
