i'mcurrently a junior, almost senior-in high school.
however, for thepast two years i have been full-time at a two year communitycollege receiving my a.a. general education requirements,and will receive the degree in the spring of 2013.
for thepast two years i've been prepping for law school when recently i hada change of heart and fell in love the decision to choose a career inthe medical field.
(wishi felt this way sooner-i could have completed my a.s. versus generala.a.)
i haven't taken nearly enough sciences courses; in factmy first will be this fall with general bio w/lab. i plan on going touf with my a.a. to acheive my bachelors.
here's where i'mlost. what should i major in for my junior/senior years ofundergrad school (with the intentions of later being a pa)?
moreimportantly, should i go for my bsn to become an rn, while makingsure i include my pre req classes so i can go to pa schoolafterwards, or is it more efficient to just get my bsc?
ireally want to be a pa. i researched and understand the multiplecourses in sciences i'll need as pre-reqs, and i understand the workexperience i'll need in order to apply to a pa school like duke oremory (my aunt is a recently graduated pa from emory).
however,she didn't become one until after a long process that iwant to avoid.
shouldi go for my bsc (how would i gain experience if i'm not an rn) orshould i do what my aunt advised and go the bsn route ' become andrn, get work experiences, and then apply to a pa school?
(ido not want to be a nurse practitioner; so i'll be going from bsn topa school).
is this the right idea?
