I’m thinking about applying to USC as either a pre-health biology major or a pre-health marine biology major. I want to attend vet school in the near future and wanted to know which one would be best to do or if I should major in something else that would set me up for success in vet school.

I also wanted to know what the job options would be if I didn’t get accepted into vet school if I did major in one of these.

Is it better for me to enroll in a 4 to 8 week CNA program, or a 32 to 34 week PCT program which can prepare me for becoming a PICU nurse.? Or Is it a better decision to go to EMT taring to prepare me for my PICU nurse career.? I am really stressing about the licenses and classes I must take in order to become a PICU nurse, I need someone to please lay it out step by step please. If I want to start off as a CNA nurse can I work with Pediatric, and adolescent patients, or do I need to work with adult patients. What is an HS.

I finished High school and I do have a diploma, and graduated with a 3.63 GPA.
I do believe the CNA program requires one to take an exam with about 70 multiple choice and reading questions, is this true.
