I screwed up big in high school, and did not graduate for many reasons. I am now 24 and after working as a medical assistant/administrator for 4 years I have decided to pursue Nursing. I am doing academic upgrading through college to get grade 12 equivalency and then doing the Pre- Nursing course. According to advisors, this is the way to go....but I'm worried after doing all this, I will still not be accepted. I am prepared to spend many more years in school to achieve my goals, as I know I'm dreaming big. I would appreciate any thoughts, comments or advice. Thank you.
