As a registered nurse you have a very wide range of things you can do in, and also out of the hospital. In order to reach my dreams of becoming a registered nurse I must go to college in a four year program so I can get my bachelor’s of science degree in nursing (BSN), and associate degree in nursing (ADN). While in high school I need to maintain a G.P.A of at least a 3.0. The reason for this is so I can be immediately accepted into a nursing school, or a nursing program. Like Miami University for example, if I maintain that 3.0 throughout high school I will be able to start nursing school immediately after I graduate instead of having to take a whole year of college and maintaining a grade higher than a B- before starting my nursing education.
