Science and basic math are very important. It also will serve you well to speak Spanish or another language. Not only will having some ability to communicate in another language - especially Spanish in the US - give you an advantage in applying for many jobs, but the experience of learning another language will help when you get into nursing school and have to learn the complex language of the medical world.

Congratulations on your desire to be a Registered Nurse. That is an exciting field that can be very fulfilling. While you are in high school, I would focus on science and math classes. I would also look for volunteer opportunities at your local hospital, nursing home, etc. That is a great time to really see what nurses do and whether it is where you want to go in your future. Best of luck!

Ryan’s Answer

I'd recommend anatomy, biology, chemistry, and any health classes as helpful places to start. Getting into nursing school requires all your class grades though, so don't forget the non-nursing related classes. Talking to nurses at your local hospital could be a helpful way to get additional insight. My experience is that you really get the details you need to use on the job in nursing school, so the high school classes are good steps to getting you there.
