I’m in my 40’s and am returning to do pre-meds this Spring ~ Yikes!! I’m an RN, which I think will help with my application, etc.

Any good words of wisdom and encouragement is welcome!! Thanks!!!

Welcome to OPM!

Welcome! Lots of nurses on here. I think it does help when coupled with experience (new grads, not so much).


Thanks for the welcome!!! Did you find yourself having an easier time with medical school as a previous RN or was it tougher?

Not tougher, but not as much easier as you’d think (for the first 2 years). I expect it will impact 3rd and 4th year more, specifically acquiring hand skills, as I already have some of them.
