Ok so here's my situation.. I'm almost going to be 20 years old and well now I realize that I want to be a nurse and I don't have any clue where to start.. I previously have 1 year of college under my belt, but at the moment i'm not attending for financial reasons.. and I don't have a job at the moment either, however I have some hotel experience in working with people and helping them and ultimately I want to have a positive impact on others as well, but this experience probably won't qualify for anything related for a medical job at the moment. First off, I do realize that I need to get back to school and I am looking towards going back this winter while hopefully working somewhere as well in order to pursue this nursing career which I really want to do. Basically I'm starting from scratch and i'm located here in northern california. Any advice of where to begin while not being in college at the moment? I feel as if i'm almost "stuck" and unsure of what it is I need to do to secure me a job in the medical field.
