Hi! SE looking to get back into Medicine/RN

  1. Greetings!

    Wow, this is a great website.

    I am a software engineer (16 years) and would love to get back into nursing/medicine. This will be quite a change for me, and i don't know what to expect WRT going back to school. So, i will probably have a lot of questions .

    What i have found so far is it's going to be difficult to get into the program... wait lists and lotteries, etc. I did complete the RN science pre-reqs, but that was 17 years ago. I worked as a occupational therapist assistant while in high school and worked as a Medical Assistant while in college. I don't know if that counts for anything, but i thought it can't hurt to mention it...

    It would be nice if i could apply my technical (software engineering) skills in the nursing field, tho i don't know where or how that would fit.

    Anyways, i am gonna go for it. Any advice, information, etc. would be appreciated .
