other advice (post new situation)
ok i am currently a sophmore in high school and my long term goal is to one day become an RN. i am absolutely positive it is what i want to do, but i want to get VERY ahead. i live in georgia and i am trying to keep my grades up so that i can get and maintain the HOPE scholarship once i graduate, and i can do that. im graduating with a gifted seel, but if anyone has advice on how to get a head start into the field it would be GREATLY appreciated :)

RN? Well, I hope you're talking about a Registered Nurse, because that's what I'm thinking about.

Well, first if you want to get a head start, ask your family if they know anyone who's in the medical field. That always helps to talk with one of them. My mom's a RN, so I don't worry about that, but I will say I've meant plenty of nurses and doctors in the past ten years or so.

Second, another great idea for a head start is to try and take an extra class at a community college, or if your high school offers post-secondary classes, find one that relates with science and take it. Always good to get a head start on your future career.

Hope I helped you out.
