This site offered me the first knowledge of DO schools. A little background. I am a 22yr old Community College Student. I am married and have a 14 month old son. I have always dreamt of being a pediatrician and have begun to work towards that goal. I have been batteling the pros and cons of getting my RN. I need to have a job that will pay me decently now...I mean more than $8.00 an hr. Anyone with a child knows that is not even close to enough to take (what I call GREAT care of my son)... I am torn. I want to take the RN program to establish a nice cusion account for my family.(I know nurses dont make that much however I'm not high maintanence), but have been told by many that Medical Schools Frown upon a nurse becomming an MD. I truly want this! Is it possible to have a BSN and get into medical school? Will attending a DO school allow me to be a pediatrician? What to do? Any ideas as to what courses to take? Thanks for reading this and I hope to hear some replies!! THANK YOU AGAIN.
