I want to become an Psychiatric nurse. I have a long way to go. AA at BC. BSN at FIU. MSN at FIU. Post Certificate in Psychiatric Nursing...somewhere (FIU doesn't offer it).

:confused: I'm at BC now will finish this semester(summer). I've been accepted to FIU. Will be transferring to FIU for the fall (2011), will take their two required courses (NUR3119 & COM 3461) before applying for nursing program. The next admission for the nursing program is Fall 2012. Any advice on what I should do in the mean time? ughhhh.

Plus I work full time, and they told me, in order to keep my FIN-AID, I have to stay through out the academic year full time. What interesting courses should I take (preferably close to my degree path)?

Sociology may be good to get a well-rounded view of psych nursing too :)
