I am 33y/o I have 80 credits but no degree (my entrepreneurial side got the best of me). I always had a passion for medicine but got discouraged when my advisor at the time told me I wouldn’t make it into medical school because of some Fs I got in Spanish and Lit (I just didn’t show up to class). I received As in GEN BIO I&2 and CHEM back when I was 18-19. Fast forward to now I want to change careers I know nursing would be the logical thing to do for my age but I always wanted to be a physician. For financial reasons I am enrolled at a community college in an ADN program and am retaking my sciences. I plan to transfer to a university after I get my ADN.
I’ve listened to podcasts about how the courses do not hold as much weight as compared to a 4 years school and also not pursuing science major and being stuck with a degree that wont hold any weight if not accepted to medical school. My situation feels so unique that any advice to steer me in the right direction or validate what I am doing would help…thank you!
