I will be attending St. John's University in the fall/2000. St. John's doesn't have a nursing progam, what courses can I take in order to prepare for certification or possibly medical school?

To prepare for a license in nursing the school has to be certified and licensed themselves by the nursing boards. However, to prepare for medical school you can take inorganic chemistry (1yr), organic chemistry (1yr), biology (1yr), english (1yr), Physics (1yr) and mathmatics.

If you are interested in the nursing you can take a 72 hour course to become a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA). To find out about these courses contact you local nursing home or hospital.

P.s. After taking the 72 hour course you need to pass an exam to become certified.
