Get in to Nursing School With a Degree in Something Else
Steve Berman | NursingLink
Perhaps you loved books so much you became a Literature major, happily earned a bachelor’s degree but something didn’t feel right. Sure, you could get a job as a teacher, or something else completely unrelated to your Lit degree. But still, something was missing.
You always thought of becoming a nurse, but you went straight on the track to a 4-year degree and figured your desire to become a nurse was just a passing fancy. Only here you are, years later, with a full-time job and more responsibilities than you ever thought possible in your early-20’s, and you realize: “I want to become a nurse.”
Don’t get discouraged and think it’s impossible, or that nursing school is too hard to get into, or that when it comes to becoming a nurse, that ship has sailed. A nursing career is still within your reach even if you take a circuitous route to get there.
