  12. Help!
    Don't go back to school for nursing. You'll be sorry that you did. You will be starting from the very bottom again, and you've come too far for that. Work for a couple of years and reassess.

  25. Is it a good idea to get an EMT while doing pre-reqs for nursing?
    It will definitely be helpful when you are looking for your 1st nursing job. Almost no one is able to get in the ER upon graduation, but your experience will definitely make you a "shoe-in".
