Other ways to prepare for your future nursing career
Nursing program admissions people don’t just look at your high school classes and grades. Things like volunteering at a hospital or other healthcare facility or seeking a summer job or internship can make your application stand out. Support activities like answering phones or distributing supplies let you observe professional nurses on the job.
You can also take a CPR and first aid course or enroll in a nursing camp while in high school. Taking a nursing school pre-admission exam during high school can be good preparation if the nursing school you plan on applying to requires one – if you don’t like your first score you can take it again after six months.
How eAchieve can help you stand out to top nursing schools and colleges
Getting into a nursing program can be extremely competitive. With so many young people interested in nursing, you need every edge you can get to be admitted into a top nursing school. If you know which nursing program you want to apply to, check and see if they share information about high school prerequisites, a minimum GPA, or other requirements.
The curriculum at eAchieve mirrors what other public schools across the state offer, so you won’t miss any opportunities to take the classes most relevant to your future nursing career. You can even stay at your current high school and take one or two online high school courses each semester, to get ahead or to take advantage of courses not offered at your local school.
Students interested in really delving into a particular subject can augment their course load with AP (Advanced Placement) or Honors classes—both highly recommended for any student striving for admission to a highly selective university.
