    After looking at your other posts, I would recommend you begin by helping yourself. Nursing takes a lot of self study, so you should begin by contacting some colleges near you that have a nursing program to get most of the information you need as far as what the education part is. Most of this is not at all about opinion, it is about rules and regulations. Most colleges have a website and you can easily begin there to find out about programs and requirements as well as who to contact for questions.

    All the other things you ask are just more of the self study part. Search this website and you will find answers to most of those questions. Search is at the top right of the page.

    We already understand that you have ALOT of questions. You have had ALOT of answers to your questions already. Yet you continue to ask the same questions over and over.

    Best advice: Start following your dreams, which will no doubt include enrolling in some basic writing/communications skills classes. Those classes are desperately needed in this case. Communication is key to a successful nursing career.

    In the OP's defense, someone in another thread suggested he repost all of his questions in one thread. I'm not sure if that person realized how many posts the OP had already made, or why they thought more repetition would be helpful, but there that is.

    To the OP: I agree with the previous posters- look at local schools of nursing. What are their requirements? How do they rank applicants for admission?How do THEY suggest you make yourself a more desireable candidate? There's a fair amount of variation on admissions requirements and processes so looking directly at the schools you're interested in will give you the best information that is most specific to your case.

    I think being a CNA first is a great idea. You are so early on in this process, as folks have pointed out in other threads, by the time you get to the point where you are looking for jobs, the economy could be very different and the market for new grad nurses very different as well....or it could be more of the same. Do your best to avoid/minimize debt while in school. Look in to scholarships and grants and ways to minimize your expenses while in school. Consider if this is something you really want to do. There are a lot of reasons to go in to nursing- doing so simply to have a guaranteed job is setting yourself up for disappointment.

    How can I be a successful nursing student??

    Study. A LOT.

    Tips to get hired soon as I graduate??

    The only tip I can offer is to make connections during clinicals and/or work as an aide somewhere. If you have an in, you're more likely to get hired but nothing is guaranteed.

    What type of experiec I need?

    For what?

    Should I do cna?

    Yes.

    Best places to work, most in demand area for new nurses??


    Those are two different questions. "Best place to work" is subjective. I worked for an employer that was often ranked as a "best employer" in the list that the city's largest newspaper put out every year. Having now worked at other (unranked) places, I can say it did not deserve its place on this list. It got on said list by paying to participate in the survey and distributing it to select employees.

    Amazon I likely to be hired first since I'm a male??

    No and I'm not sure why you would think that. There are laws about gender discrimination in hiring practices.

    Average starting salary for new grads??

    This question has been answered 10,000 times on all of your other threads. There is no "average starting salary." It varies by location and by employer.

    How to have a good life as a nurse??

    Find a job that you enjoy, work hard and leave work at work.

    Tips to get into RN program??

    Look up the programs you're interested in and see what their entrance requirements are.

    Best classes to take?

    The classes for the nursing program are decided for you. For my entire BSN program, I had three electives.

    What classes offers point for RN program?


    I don't understand what you're asking here.

    Does schooling for nurse go by fast?


    No. It goes by in 2-4 years, depending on your program.

    Is 19 years old a good age to start?


    If you feel ready. I was 18 when I started.

    Kind of reading between the questions I came up with a hypothesis that you might be wondering "Is it worth it to go to Nursing School with all the challenges involved, and graduate successfully only to maybe not be hired, and if hired make less than all the rumors you've heard about nurses' paychecks being fat?

    Let me say this the softest I can. I love being a Nurse. I love what it means at the least spectrum of our job doing CNA type skills, to the advance practice skills I have now as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Would I do it all over again? I truly don't know. The "Customer Satisfaction" Model that Healthcare has become startles me and lessens my moral- it's not going anywhere. The Malpractice insurance I wouldn't be caught without is too expensive. I have two extra degrees that have really earned me no extra money, as I could have remained a Traveling ADN making more than my FNP nets in.

    I was an RN at 19, and I don't "regret" my decision, but sometimes I do wonder if I made the "best" decision. Even when all these questions you have are answered, I assure you- you'll just have MORE

    I highly recommend calling your local nursing schools! Your questions are great and asked my many different students before they begin this journey. But you should definitely contact a school to hear what they have to say. Every answer you get here is subjective.

    Yes, I suggested he make one post for asking all of his questions. Didn't know how many posts he made already. I saw 4 threads and suggested instead of clogging the feed that he ask all questions in one thread. And I didn't not say REPOST all questions in one thread. I said post ALL questions in one thread. See the difference?

    My original post in the other thread:

    Do you want to start a thread stating I have a lot of questions can someone help me? Then you can ask all your questions at once. It will get you more responses and won't flood the feed. And then you can see different view point in one thread. We are happy to help you.




    OP I agree with Zoe92 call or look up a local nursing school in your area. Look at the admission guidelines and other information about the program. This will serve as a guide as to which classes you need to take to be admitted to the nursing program. Nursing is a great field but has taken a hit with the economy. There are pros and cons to every job but I don't regret (on most days) becoming a nurse. I'm going back to school for something non nursing but because I have been a nurse and in healthcare for a while this will give me an advantage and open up more opportunities for me. So do your research and really decide if this is what you want to do with your life.

    Dear OP, you need to listen to what people are telling you and stop asking the same questions over and over. The answers aren't going to change.

    No, not really. How can OP post all questions in one new thread without reposting his questions? It's not the end of the world but I think it's also fair to OP to point out that the mega post of collected questions was not his idea.
