    Nursing School Prospective Med School.

    Thank you both for the replies... I think part of the reason that I have been contemplating medical school is because I have been getting mixed information from existing nurses. Some say that they love it, that they get to help people in some of their most vulnerable times... But recently I have been hearing a lot of people saying that all you do as a nurse is give injections, take blood pressures, change diapers, and wash bed sores... I want to be able to know that I will be DOING things--medical things--to help people. Does that make sense?

    Nursing School Prospective Med School.

    Hello everyone. I am new to the board. I am going to be applying to nursing school in the spring, and I am really excited about it! But, I have been having thoughts about maybe doing medical school. I just can't shake off this thought and desire to go to medical school. But, I just don't know. Right now I live in Florida, but I want to move as soon as possible. I can't see myself living here for longer than a couple more years. And if I go to medical school I would want to pay in state tuition rather than out of state, but of course I would have to establish residency in another state first. I guess my questions are these: 1. Did/do you ever want to go back to school to go to medical school? 2. If so, how did you go about it? 3. Do you think I should just get my RN license here in Florida, move to whatever state, work for a year or so to establish residency (and ideally experience the lives of nurses, doctors, etc), and then apply to med school? I don't know... I want to hear other people's thoughts that are objective to my situation... Thanks! Nina.
