I am new to all of this, I originally was looking into going to school for an ultrasound technician but realized that I could become a nurse with just an extra year of classes (at least I think I read that right, it's 4 years right with pre-req's?), so I was thinking that nursing would be more beneficial and worth it. Problem is, I know NOTHING about it. LOL Like what the different degrees are, what's the best route/degrees to take, how hard the schooling is. I'm totally lost. I plan on scheduling a meeting with a local university to learn more about their programs problem is I don't know which one to be interested in. I know what I want to do in the end.. work in the labor and delivery/ new life unit.. that would be my dream job! So any/all help will be greatly appreciated. I'm 24, a high school graduate with no college credits or anything like that.
