So i am starting nursing school
(RN.. then eventually do RN->BScn Bridge) in Ontario in Sep 09 (Still waiting for additional waiting list acceptances), i am 21 btw.
If you could go back in time, what things/issues would have done to prep yourself for the experience?
So far i have the following:
- Read other Male Nurse experiences here.
- Review some basic sciences
- Research some potential books i may need.

Its up to you, I know some people who have just chilled out for the summer and waiting for the hard work that's to come. I personally decided to get my CNA certification and get a job as a CNA (I did the training during the summer and I was working by middle - end of Sept.) I found that getting a foot in the door has really helped and given me an edge but its not for everyone
. Its also nice to know that I have a job at a hospital so when I am done with nursing school I will have someplace to work in this struggling economy and getting a job as an RN here will be that much easier. Its really up to you but whatever you do just be ready to study when the fall comes around. Good luck!
