I just graduated with a degree in Biology on deans list this Spring semester. I wanted to be a nurse earlier in my undergrad years. I also explored different paths such as Medical Technologist, Dental Hygienist, Respiratory therapist, Audiologist ect. Although now that I have graduated and with the circumstances of the COVID pandemic I am motivated to do nursing and have applied for some ABSN programs. I wanted to know if a previous Biology degree would help with nursing curriculum. Also what can expect from the new aspect of clinical?

I have been doing research for nursing schools in California. As far as I know, there are even some schools offering a BSN program exclusively for students who hold already a bachelor degree. I bet there are tons of pre-nursing students without a bachelor degree. You should maybe look into these options, also consider community colleges, they give extra points for admission if you have a degree. A biology degree could help you to have an understanding of maybe A&P, Microbiology as they are part of biology.
