Tips for High School Students Who Want to be Nurses!Preparing for your future starts in high school.
The harder you study now.... The more doors will be open to you!
If you are considering nursing, you should take classes now that will prepare you for college later. Coursework should include English/language arts, algebra
For example, did you know that nurses use algebra daily when figuring medication dosages?
The knowledge you learn in high school builds the foundation for your college education and career.
Other recommended courses include biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, speech, foreign language, and anatomy and physiology.
Many college advisors recommend higher-level Advanced Placement (AP) classes when possible.
Do your best work and aim for good grades. Admission into nursing programs is competitive and grade point average (GPA) matters.
Nursing programs are rigorous and organizational techniques improve your performance, so practice effective study and time management skills while you are in high school.
