For this research paper I will be writing about my major, which is pre-nursing. Pre nursing is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while and is something that I’m really passionate about because I have always found it intriguing and interesting since I was young.

There is a multitude of requirements in this field, which can sometimes be problematic for nursing student who are pursuing admissions to a nursing program. A nursing student is not only required to excel academically, but also in hands on experience.
