- 0Nov 22, '06 by GompersI got a minor in psychology because it only required taking 2 more psych classes on top of all the ones that were required for my BSN. I figured, why not? I got to pick the classes, too, which was fun because the ones for the nursing program were pretty cut and dry.
In most areas of the country, Spanish would be a good minor.

Besides that, do you have a field that you would chose second to nusing?
Any of the general education requirement courses catch your eye? - Feel it and chose whats best for you
- 0Nov 22, '06 by llg GuideI went to school many years ago and did not get a minor because my school did not offer "minors" as an option in anything. You either met the requirements for a second major or you didn't. I was only 2 courses short of a second major in political science, but couldn't squeeze them into my schedule.
I always regretted that I didn't have the "minor" option. If would recommend that any student who has that option, to take it -- and get that extra credential in a second field, preferably in a field that relates to your area of interest.

after some consideration, i think i'm going to do child development and family studies. i want to specialize in pediatrics as an RN/NP, and then eventually become an attorney in family law. it seems that minor would be the most beneficial compared to sociology (i have no idea what i would do with that).
if anyone else can offer any other insight, i would definitely look into it.
