I need help

So I am a Junior and I've taken honors and AP classes, I'll be a senior next year and I don't know what classes to take, I want to go to a good school not like Ivy but somewhere where i'll get a good education. I want to major in Nursing so I need help with what classes to take where I can stand out to other people applying to the same schools. Also, I'm doing AP Language and Literature and English 12, should I double up on English? My teacher said I should because I'm really good, and It could fill up my schedule. Thank you

I'd say get lots of volunteer experience/outside of school activities in nursing related programs to stand out to colleges; in terms of APs I'd say take as many STEM APs as possible. In terms of doubling up on English I would say just take one or the other and use the extra space to take more nursing/STEM related classes to really emphasize to colleges that you have an interest in nursing.

I totally agree with this comment. I also want to go into nursing and I was told to take AP biology and AP chemistry since they're pretty rigorous science classes that show your interest in science and also prepare you for the courses you will take in college for nursing.
