So, after reading thread after thread I decided to join. I currently am a student at GBCC for my medical coding cert. and in taking these classes realized I loved the medical field. Everyone has always told me I would be a good nurse and always said no, but now I am thinking about it. I would like to apply to the nursing program there but like I said I don't know if its for me. I have a passion for kids but would love to explore other options as well. In thinking that I would like to do nursing and do well at it, I have started to take some of the pre-reqs for the program. My hope is to get in for the '10 program. So my plan is to take A+P 1 this summer, take chem and finish my med coding stuff in the fall, take a+p 2, microbio, alg and intro to psych in the spring of '10 but I don't know if that will work. As from reading all the posts, they say to take both a+p's before the nursing exam so you have the points on the exam which I will probably take twice once this summer and then again in the winter. I also read that the program is really hard to get into, and since I am not a good test taker I just don't know if I can do this. So, all in all. I guess I just need some advice, pushes in the right direction or any direction or maybe someone who has gone through this process and has a job that can answer a few questions.
