im a junior in high school. i live in Georgia and ive been interested in nursing since i was a little girl. ive heard from multiple people that its hard to get into nursing schools and that you have to do alot of volunteer work. i want to go to Chattanooga state to get my nursing degree because its close to where i will be living.
ive heard that you can start your nursing education while you are in high school but i don't know where to begin. im not very good at science and my math varies from a B to a C and i and ok at English. my school has a nursing type class that teaches you the basics ( the Heimlich, how to clean wounds, dental care, patient care, etc.) but its hard to get in that class and i havent been able to take it yet. where would i start my education in nursing?
your help would be very much appreciated! thank you in advanced!
