    It's difficult to advise you if you don't provide an outline of your situation. Are you enrolled in school? Perhaps you already found a school. The best advice can come from an advisor or staff member from the nursing department at your school. There you can get a 1 on 1 plan of study and/or question anwered according to their guidelines. Or are you looking for a school? Requirements will vary from school to school, so I advise you to visit the prenursing section of the site, where you will find lots of useful information.

    Good luck

    could you volunteer at a Hospital until then? It would be an introduction and a good warm-up to the real world of nursing. Good luck
