    The place to start is by contacting the schools closest to you to find out about the admission requirements, the nursing program's curriculum (length of program, expectations of the students, etc.), tuition, financial aid opportunities, and anything else that might help you determine if this is the best program and the best fit to achieve your goals.

    Best of luck with your future studies.
