I am 18 years old and currently enrolled in a community college. I want to get a nursing degree, but I also want to go to medical school. I am completely aware that nursing is not easy and the nursing program does not fulfill all the requirements for med school. My question is, what should I do? Has anyone else done this before? I'm getting stressed out because I don't know what classes to choose and the advisors at my community college are not helpful. I wanted to get my bsn and work for a year or two before applying to med school. If anyone could offer suggestions it would be a great help!
Go to med school, forget nursing. I have answered this question so many times I feel like my eyes are going to bleed. The two don't overlap at all and if you go pre-med and don't get in you can try for PA or double back to nursing.
I did both pre-med and nursing, all my summers were gone so it wasn't worth it.
Also my pre-med courses were A LOT tougher than nursing school so trying to schedule both in a semester will kill you.
