I was given a full ride to Alabama A&M but they don't have nursing as a major. They only have a BS in biology with a concentration in pre-nursing but I'm not sure if that is the same thing. I'm defiantly open to other medical jobs (my mom even thinks its a sign to look at something else lol).
I was also thinking about getting a management/business degree from there and then going to nursing school, so I can go into the leadership roles of a hospital in the future, but I'm not sure if that is a smart decision.
This is a really good opportunity for me and I would hate to pass on it.
Becoming a nurse without majoring in Nursing is a common way for students to enter the profession. Your hunch is right - you can absolutely major in another subject and attend nursing school later. A major in business/management with a focus on healthcare would make you stand out to nursing schools more than a BS in biology.
