First of all, I am currently not a nurse, but I will graduate in May. I don't know if GPA is a factor regarding a research position but I will end up in the 3.7-3.8 range. I have always been very fascinated with Alzheimer's, and I was wondering if research in this field was something that was available to nurses. If so, what should I focus on when it comes to a Graduate degree? And, what type of unit should I strive to work in, in order to better my chances of obtaining this type of position? I look forward to hearing what you guys have to say. Thanks!
