Firstly I should introduce myself, hello all.. I'm currently finishing up my prereq's and hope to start the RN program at my school next spring (their nursing program only starts in the spring).
I'll finish my prereq's this semester and so I still have the summer and fall semester before I can start nursing, and I don't want to take a semester off. So I was thinking that I could take a foreign language. What language do you guys think would be the most beneficial for me to learn?
Depends on where you are. One language that you are guaranteed to learn and use is spanish. Here in my area, it's mostly spanish, korean, and vietnamese. How I wish I can learn one of them, but spanish, imo, is widely used anywhere.
That's what I keep coming back to. I'm currently in TN and around here it's definitely used a lot.
I'm in TN as well. Go for Spanish. It's what I'm doing because I apply for spring 2015 w/ only 2 pre reqs left to complete in the summer and fall.
If Spanish is what you hear a lot of, then do that. You'll definitely be more marketable with that on your resume!
What's TN, if you dont mind me asking?

Depends and what state you live. I took Spanish. If more in the South or West USA, Spanish is a good idea. If closer to the Canadian boarder French might be a good idea. Tennessee seems more South, Spanish would be a good idea.
Spanish is definitely good almost anywhere. I want to plug American Sign Language, too, though, because that's also useful everywhere.
Either way, studying another language is a great option for you to keep going when finished with prereqs!

I took a sign language class in high school and absolutely LOVED it. I'm having a hard time finding out if my college offers it though. I'd love to take that on top of Spanish. I find myself trying to sign along with songs even after so many years :)

Depends on where you live honestly. I'm in S. Florida so knowing Spanish is beneficial. I'm Haitian and multilingual and it definitely comes in handy because we have a large population here too.
Let me ask you, is the nursing job market down there Extremely competitive? I grew up in Florida and want to move to South Florida after I graduate.
