Do You Want to Become a Nurse?

School has started again and this year's high school juniors and seniors are preparing for their future. If you are thinking about becoming a nurse, you should read Before You Decide to Become a Nurse.

There are a lot of deadlines coming up rapidly such as college applications and NET or TEAS testing arrangements. It's also time to explore financial aid options and start the FAFSA process. Some scholarship deadlines are rapidly approaching. Be sure you have these dates on your calendar and keep them in your sight.

Nursing schools are impacted and many have long waiting lists. Each year schools turn away thousands of qualified students. Make sure you do everything in your power to be accepted! You should also carefully consider the list of schools that don't have a waiting list. Don't put all of your eggs in one basket, apply to several to improve your chances of being accepted.
