Study your sciences and college science courses will be easier for you. Most importantly learn good study habits now, it will help in nursing school when you have learn a large amount of material very quickly. Good luck to you.

Have a school counselor? If so use this person to help you plan your program of study in high school and beyond. Ask him/her what universities and colleges offer nursing training and do what you can to meet with them and find out what it takes to be accepted. I recommend you go directly for your RN; LPNs as a rule do NOT get hired in L and D anymore.

Best wishes. Use that counselor! That is what they are paid for!

Take anatomy if your high school offers it. It will give you a jump on college anatomy. Some high schools also offer a health professions class, something to think about. If you plan on going to IU (I think you should, but I am biased :chuckle ), the nursing programs at both Bloomington and Indianapolis are very competitive and acceptance is based almost solely on your GPA. (College prereq GPA, not HS GPA)

By the way, is Decatur one of the many flooded areas in our wonderful state?

Hope you're staying dry,
