Congratulations for choosing the Nursing profession! Now let's get you into Nursing School. If you already have your heart set on one school, research the school, their values, what they look for in candidates and find students already enrolled and speak with them if possible. Also, have a backer upper school in mind as financials, waiting lists, and acceptance may change your initial plan. Start volunteering, get into the medical world. Nursing Homes, Hospitals and Hospice are all great places to start. You can become a CNA which will give you invaluable experience and looks great on application. Letters of recommendation are helpful too. Try to obtain letters from any "medical" professionals that truly know you and your calling. Lastly, focus on your pre-requisites, math, sciences, chem, A&P. Try to get as high of grades in those especially as possible. Bottom line, there is no easy way. Hard work, period.
This professional recommends the following next steps:
- Ace your pre-requisites
- Letters of recommendation
