    Before entering the field of nursing, make sure you really understand what you are really getting into...starting out as a CNA is an excellent opportunity to get your feet wet. Also, understand that the field is highly highly competitive with the So. Cal market saturated with new grads looking for positions. Too many schools with too many new grads. I don't see the market getting any better over the next couple of years either. Just understand what you are up against and do some research before spending so much money on a private school RN program. Also, National U. does not offer preceptorships (at least they didn't in 2010 when I attended) as other schools in the area do. This makes finding a position even more difficult without this experience on your resume.

    Hi everyone! I just graduated from high school & I'm going to be attending National University in September to start my pre-requisites for nursing. I can honestly say I'm quite anxious to start school here as it's not a traditional university from what I've heard. The majority of students who attend NU are either in the military or are shooting for a second degree meaning I'm probably going to be the youngest in my classes. I'm hoping to apply to the nursing program sometime next year. If anyone could fill me in with their nursing journey through NU & any tips for my pre-requisites, that'd be greatly appreciated!
