    I say just start with the goal of getting into a nursing program. Once you get into a nursing program you get to do your clinicals in a wide variety of specialties, then will be a good time what area you like the best. What you think would be the most exciting now may not be all its cracked up to be once you do your clinicals in that area.

    Excellent advice. One of the great things about nursing is that if you get tired of one area, you can simply transfer to something new. You won't specialize in a nursing program, but will do rotations in the various areas. Big thing is to get into the program, graduate, and spend some time developing skills.

    Good luck. Nursing is a great career.

    Be well...

    Yep, concentrate on getting into the nursing program and go for the RN, BSN.

    Good luck! Welcome.
