Nursing is a blend of science and caring. No one can teach you caring, you have this from your heart. But Science can be learned. Since Science isn't just one thing, rather it's a collection of things that we have observed. And WoW! what a big collection. I'm just an average student, but I can pass on a couple of hints; do well in the core science classes, for they will allow you to enjoy your "Nursing" classes. Biology, Microbiology, Anatomy et Physiology, Chemistry, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology...the list seems endless. Also, a huge part of nursing is Nursing itself. This seems like an oxymoron, but hands-on nursing can begin very early in your education if you work at a hospital or nursing home (LTC). More than experience, you get a love for nursing. If you don't get a love for nursing, it isn't too late to become a cellular biologist, who, by the way, make more money than nurses, work better hours and don't get eaten for lunch periodically by their co-workers.
