Hello Robbie, my name is Olivia and I'm interested in nursing and plan on majoring in biology. I had a quick question regarding how you choose your field, since the healthcare field is so broad? Do you have any tips for me that would help me pursue a nursing career?
Hi Olivia! In order to select your field, both in nursing and for physicians, there are something called clinicals, or rotations. These are short dynamic programs that occur all over the United States in a wide variety of different fields. They will help you figure out whether you’d like to work with kids, mothers, or maybe even athletes! This will happen during your 3rd or 4th year in nursing school. Actually, my university, UVA, has a fantastic nursing school! Check it out: https://www.nursing.virginia.edu/
