Hi, I am a junior in High School, and I have finally found out what I want to do with my life...be a RN...now...I am really confused on how to go about getting my RN liscense. I am currently in Introduction to Health Care this is a 9 week course in my school, and next 9 wks, I am in Medical Terminology
, then next year, my Senior year, I am going to be in Patient Care Tech, which is when our class goes to the Nursing Home and volunteers, then at the end of next year, I take the CNA exam, and hopefully get my CNA liscense...anyways...after graduation...what do I do to get my RN liscense? Do I have to get an AA degree before I go to my community college in the nursing program...or are the pre-req's included in the nursing program?...Gosh why does this have to be so confusing! All I want to do is be a RN!!!...oh...and I would love to specialize in Pediatrics...but how do i do that? Do I have to go to 2 or 4 more years of school to do that?...Please Help!
