Hey! I’m actually still a junior in high school but really want to become an RN (specifically working in the NICU). I’ve been doing a college search, and so far all of them require 2 years of prerequisites which are offered through a Health Sciences A.A degree. To me it sounds like a waste of time and money, but is this the track most current nurses chose? There are some colleges that offer these prerequisites in the program so I don’t have to complete another degree for no reason but they are expensive, too far for me, or poorly rated.
