Hi Dean Villarruel,
I'm currently an junior at UCLA studying biology. Throughout my first two years, I was never sure I wanted to enter the healthcare industry so I didn't pursue nursing 100%. But this past summer, I was able to volunteer abroad as a health assistant and am pretty sure my calling is in nursing.
My question is, what do you think is the most important factor in becoming an RN? What is the ONE commonality you see among those who end up becoming RN certified?
And what are the different ways that someone in my situation (not knowing they were going to be a nurse coming into college) can end up becoming an RN. I feel slightly behind because I am not enrolled in a nursing program as an undergraduate.
