If you're thinking about getting into a nursing career that'll be a really awesome idea because it's a very rewarding, just all around great job. You can pretty much get a job anywhere you go, as well. But, if you're looking into getting to be a nurse you're going to want to find out how to prepare. And I'm Dan Carlson; I'm a nurse, and this is what courses to take to become a nurse. First things first; you're going to want to look at taking things like anatomy and physiology, microbiology, chemistry, pharmacology, some English courses may be necessary so you have good communication skills. A great thing to do is just to look into the nursing school that you would be considering going to, and asking them for a course list. And then, you can maybe take those courses ahead of time to help save you time and stress later, you know, kind of lighten up your load of your courses, and stuff like that. That'd be a lot easier. But a lot of things you can basically look at as the nursing career, what you do in the nursing career, and find courses that surround that. Mainly though, it's anatomy and physiology of the human body structure, and how the body structure works and functions. Another important one is pharmacology, because in the nursing career there's a lot of medication passing. But like I said, look at a nursing school, ask them for a course list, and it'll teach you a lot about what you need to know. I'm Dan Carlson. Thank you very much.
