i discovered about 1 year ago that i wanted to become a nurse. i am finishing my last months of middle school and in august im going to be a freshman in high school. we toured the high school monday and it is huge
. i found out that they have a healthcare as an elective . so then all of the 8th graders and there parents got to see the high school that following thursday and i got to see the lady in charge of the healthcare elective. she said that in my senior year of high school if i stay in her class the ebtire 4 years of high school that i could become a cna (certified nurse assistant) i think and i could go work for the hospital here. so its all stressful but fun. i just wanted to know do you have to be good in math? because for the year i have an a average in math but i think this semester im going to have a b in all my academics. ive always been on th honor roll my whole life. im sure if i was to study harder that i could have an a in math so for my 4th 9 weeks of school im going to work my butt off and make a honor roll. i want to become an rn when i graduate from college. i need all the advice i could get.

My advice to you is take all the Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy (science basically)that you can. Biggest advice though is try not to get too wrapped up in boys and lose sight of your goals and end up neglecting your schoolwork, I did and have regretted it. I could have been an honor roll student if I had not let my hormones lead me. Don't let anyone tell you that you are too young to know what you want to do for the rest of your life. I had already decided when I was a Freshman in High School that I was going to be a nurse. Its taken a bit longer for me to get to RN than I wanted ( I am an LPN at present) but I am getting there) Go for it! :spin:
