If you are unsure about the going back to school or to become a nurse or haven’t started to search for nursing programs, ask the school if you can take a class as a guest student. Many programs will let you take one or two classes without officially registering or officially applying to the program. This is a great way to see if the school and program is the right one for you. This will also allow you to get a sense of what is required for the program, such as the specific computer program that will be used. You take a class make sure you take one that is an introductory class. The last thing you want to do is take a class where it is too difficult and you will not like the program because of the one class. Ask your advisor what is a good class that will be an introduction into the program.
