So halfway through nursing school I realized that I wanted to be a doctor instead. I am now entering my junior year of college, and I have done my own digging on how to get into med school, as there are no pre-med advisers at my college. Some of my credits are from a community college, and I wont have all the usual prerequisites that most med schools require once I graduate. So here's my plan/thought process: complete a health science minor that will give me some classes such as genetics and chemistry, and take the rest that I need in a post bachelor pre-medical program at another college with a premed adviser. There they will look at my academic history and give additional guidance on how to make myself competitive. I'm going to volunteer during the summer and whenever possible during school. I work part time and am paying off my tuition out of pocket with no loans. I currently have a 4.0. I am in an honors program, and have been very involved in student government. I am a Nursing Assistant mentor, and have performed in other leadership roles such as camp counseling and class representative. At some point I want to take part in a research program and shadow doctors. Am I on the right track or should I be doing things differently? To me it would be silly to stop nursing because half my time and money went to those courses. However, this is the sum of what the internet has told me to do in order to be competitive for med schools. I have no friends or family that are able to give guidance and the professors at my college aren't much help either. Any thoughts?
