hello. i have a quick question about getting into an accelerated nursing program. i graduated from college in december of 2006 with an accounting degree. however, i graduated HS in 2000 and due to some circumstances i had to transfer schools and thus it took me longer to get my degree. at first i really liked my accounting classes, however, after i got into my upper level classes and did an accounting internship, i realized that i really don't enjoy accounting. last year i studied abroad in china and while i was there i lived with some chinese nurses. through that experience and my past interests in nursing, i have contimplated purusing a 2nd degree in nursing. my question is concerning whether or not i should work in accounting for a few years and then puruse nursing? would it look better on my application if i had 2 or 3 years working for an accounting firm? i have had summer jobs, and an accounting internship, and study abroad time. i'm currently working, but not for an accounting firm. anyway, if i do decide to apply for an accelerated program, i have a bunch of prerequiste classes to take since i didn't major in science. i have an opportunity to take a job with a major accounting firm, but i don't know if i can do this and take all my prerequiste classes at the same time. that is why i wanted to keep my current job and take classes at the same time. then i would be able to apply to nursing school sooner.

any opinions would be helpful.
