I am a sophomore in high school and i was just wondering what classes are best to excel in! Like, algebra2 and chemistry and physics. How big of a roll do they play in being a neonatal nurse. English, history, etc...Any help you can give me would be great! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME!!!

Pinkcrush: As with any job, the basics are key: know how to communicate on the page and in person, know anatomy, know solid basics of chemistry. The rest is built on that foundation during nursing school and fine tuned with actual experience. Good luck!

Contact the nursing schools you are interested in, and they should be able to tell you what prerequisites to take. I can't think of any high school subjects that would apply more to neonatal nursing than to any other type of nursing. I would probably take the highest levels of math, science and English, plus two years of a foreign language. Those would most likely set you up pretty well with any college or university.
