Hey, I'm going into nursing school this Fall, but I want to have some kind of practical experience with patients beforehand if possible. I have no previous medical background, though. Most of my experience is clerical. I have an Associate's, but it's in elementary education, which is practically useless. I was just wondering if there is any type of entry-level job (like some type of helper or aide) that will let you work with patients. Thanks for your help. I'm just at a loss because there's no "Big Book of Medical Jobs and Their Training Requirements."
