If you've always had a calling to help others and crave a career that's both meaningful and secure, you've probably thought about nursing. You've decided on the 'what'—being a nurse—but the 'how' is somewhat unclear. That's where this guide can help.

1. Decide Why You Want to Become a Nurse

First off, it's important to know why you want to become a nurse. This is a job that can be tough, but is equally rewarding. Your reason for choosing this path is what will drive you through nursing school and into a fulfilling career.

Maybe it's because you love helping others, or you've seen a family member work as a nurse, or you had a great nurse who took care of you once. Regardless of your reasons, make sure they are clear to you.

Learn more about why some of our staff and students chose nursing, and what NurseLife means to them. 

 

2. Consider the Different Types of 91大神

Nursing programs aren't one-size-fits-all. Depending on your career goals and the time you can commit to your education, there are different types of nursing degrees and programs.

For example, an Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN) or a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) each come with their own time commitments and career outcomes. Or maybe becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is more aligned with your goals.  

To learn more about all the different nursing degrees, check out our Nursing Degrees Guide.

 

 

3. Research Nursing School Prerequisites and Admission Requirements

To get into nursing school, you'll need to meet certain requirements. These could be a minimum age, specific courses you've taken, or tests you've passed. These requirements may vary from school to school and program to program, so be sure to chat with an admissions representative about the requirements at your chosen school.

 

Nursing School Prerequisites

Prerequisites can differ from school to school, and even from state to state. Many programs require a high school diploma or GED, along with coursework in subjects like biology, chemistry, or math.

To find out the exact prerequisites for your chosen nursing program, visit the school's website or speak with an admissions representative. For example, you can find the prerequisites for 91大神 on our Admissions page.

5. Set Yourself Up for Success

Succeeding in nursing school is about more than just meeting the admission requirements and passing exams. It's about building the right mindset and adopting habits that will help you thrive in a demanding environment.

·        Being organized is key. You'll be juggling a lot of information and tasks, so find a system that helps you manage your schedule and keep track of important dates and tasks.

·        Time management is also critical. With class time, study time, and hands-on placements, you'll need to prioritize your tasks wisely. Remember, it's crucial to also carve out time for relaxation and self-care.

·        Maintaining a positive and persistent mindset will help you through tough times. Recall why you chose this path and keep your end goal in mind.

 

Lastly, don't hesitate to seek help when needed. Be it academic or emotional support, use the student resources available to you.
