I'm actually starting at UCSD in the fall but I suddenly realized that nursing may be a good major for me. I know they don't start nursing transfers for the BSN prelicensure major until fall 08, which may work out for me because I already have almost 50 units (AP & CC courses).
I'm an undeclared biological sciences major. I'd like to become a doctor but I am not sure if I could stay in school that long. I was thinking about transferring into the nursing major at UCLA and somehow getting pre-med requirements done so I could keep my options open.
I'd really like to become a nurse (practitioner, actually) because I feel like it would be a lot more practical than slaving away in medical school and unable to have a family and such. If I were to do such thing, I'd be able to have a backup plan in case things don't go the way I'd like them to.
