Question by jane: How could I become a registered nurse? How many years in school? and what prerequisites do i need?
I am a 24 year old female and i am looking to become a RN. I only have one year of college under my belt. I did some research/and heard from people that i can go to a nurse technical school and thats for about one year only(usually at community colleges). Is that to become an RN? If not, what type of nurse is that and what degree would i have/what would i be doing in the field?
Answer by April
My friend has just started a nursing course at university. She is only 18 and says that the majority of people training to become a nurse are 30+.
Its never too late to apply for university. She failed her A levels (British qualifications taken ages 16-18), but has a GCSE in biology (Taken at age 16). So go for it, apply.
Her course is taking 3 years. I am not sure what degreee she is getting at the end. I think she will end up nursing elderly people.
