Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

HIPAA is for reals, folks. All of my "patient stories" have been changed to protect patient privacy. I will change any or all identifiers, including age, location, race/ethnicity, sex, medical history, and quotes. Also, I am an anonymous internet person. Why should you trust an anonymous internet person to give you medical advice? Don't ask me, ask your doctor!

Do you think that Nursing as a major while taking Pre-med courses could give me a less chance of getting into Med School. Is Nursing a good major for a med shcool bound student basically?

Sure, why not? You’ll get great clinical experience as a nursing major, and it shows you’re really serious about going into healthcare. I know quite a few doctors and med students who started out as nurses (or EMTs or Paramedics). It would be much more likely to give you an advantage than a disadvantage. And hey, you might like it so much you decide to stick with nursing!
