Hello!

Prepare to take the TEAS test. Some people pass it the first time, others have a real hard time. I'd say focus on that first to get it out of the way... w/o it you can't get into nursing school.

Instead of EMT, maybe take a CNA class? Might be faster with a greater potential to work in different environments so you can see what it's like.

I agree with carakristin1... don't take EMT unless that's what you want to do in your career. The scope of duty is different for an EMT than for a nurse. If you want to be a nurse, take the CNA classes. Some only last a couple of weeks and it would give you a start in the nursing world.

Good luck!
