I'm new and I'm 15 years old. I've always wanted to become a nurse but I've recently heard you have to get the same degrees as a doctor? Is that true? How many years would it take to become a nurse? And, if this isn't too off topic, what are the best schools for becoming a nurse? I've always planned to apply to UCLA and UC Berkley because I can't afford any schools out of state, and these are (from what I've read about and heard about) the best UC's. Thank you! And I'm sorry for all these questions that aren't quite pertinent to the original question.
