Just a quick background, Im 18 years old and am in the process of getting my GED. It's been a big dream of mine to always want to help people and get into the medical field because I myself have been in plenty of hospitals and surgeries throughout my life and I decided that i would ultimately like to end up as a Surgical Assistant. Im studying a lot into what direction I should take with this and where I should go. I plan to fill out an application to attend Johns Hopkins School of nursing but im not sure exactly for what type of degree.So in short, I was just wondering what I should pursue exactly to achieve what I want. I respect nurses and all of the work that they do but I would like to eventually become a specialty nurse.
