    Courses to take that could help in the future?

    Take the basic classes that apply to every major like English, Math that way if you find yourself wanting to specialize or do not like healthcare the classes will apply to any major. I will also suggest certificate courses like CMA, CNA, Phlebotomy, it your college offers any.
  2. In the state I am in to get a HHA certification there are no clinical requirements and the certification test has few skills to master. I do not know why CNA would only be awarded 2 points.

    Need Advice! Please Help!

    What is your current major? To get finical aid having a complete degree makes it easier. That is because after so many credit hours with out graduating they see you as being a professional student and you will not be able to receive any grant money. You should also take a CNA program first it will help you in a lot of different ways.

    Nursing - Not Sure...

    If you can take the summer do so, during the summer do job shadowing and ride alongs in anything that interests you (in and out of the Nursing field). While doing burn-out cure's. Mean while revisit why you want/wanted to become a Nurse.
  11. I have read a few of the Cheery Aimes books and I remember there was always a mystery involved so she was a nurse detective. To answer your question I think we need to take some of the mystery of Nursing College. AS far as I know there are few depictions (especially compared to the number of med school fiction) of what it is like and most are set before the 1970's.

    There are four US shows that have a PA or NP as a regular or lead. The two that are currently airing is the Resident (2018-?) that has an NP, and Virgin River (2019-?) a NP and Midwife the two from the past are Royal Pains (2009-2016) and St. Elsewhere (1982-1988) both had PA's.
