This is my first post here...I just happened onto this site via a car message board I'm on...
Anyway...I am considering becoming a nurse and wonder if I am too old to start? I'm a guy...32...single btw
My mom thinks its a great idea...she has been a nurse for a long time(more of administration though)....I told her I thought about becoming a CNA first, then go on to get my R.N. She said go the EMT route first then get your RN....she said CNA's do all the scud work...is how she put it.
My goal is to work in the ER....I talked to one nursing admin where I work and she said I would need at least one year of Med-Surg, before I could work in the ER. Am I better off going the EMT route? I guess I am a little confused?
Thanks for any insight.
