Majoring in Nursing.. Career Options

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
K well I obviously know you can be a NURSE with a nursing degree, and I heard you can go to med school even...

Well this question will probably sound dumb but can you go to Vet School with a Nursing degree?

YEAH GIRL. There are a lot of things you can do with a bachelor degree in nursing,

Teachers College and become a teacher
Medical School and become a doctor
Physician Assistant (top rated careers in the US)
Nurse Practitioner (very good career)
Nurse Anesthetist (great career in the states)

And yes you can also go into VET school with a BScN degree. The reason why this degree is so popular because in four years it gives you amazing hands on experience and after the completion of your bachelor degree you get a GREAT paying job and the knowlegdge to go into different medical fields if desired to do so.

You could get into vet school with a nursing degree. So long as you fulfill the prereqs, take the MCAT (for OVC)/GRE (for US schools) if required, obtain sufficient vet and animal experience hours and have reference letters from vets (at least 2 for OVC). It'd just be harder because there are less electives in nursing than other programs so you may have to take summer school/distance ed to get all the necessary prereqs.

The only problem with these things is that since nursing curriculum is so structured you have to take extra courses to meet certain requirements (such as general bio or chem) - look into that early!
