    If this sounds overwhelming, or if you are already overwhelmed just thinking about the nursing education journey, you’ve come to the right place for advice straight from those who make the decisions! We asked hundreds of nursing administrators, advisors, faculty, directors, deans, and presidents what advice they would give to all those people out there ready to apply and begin working towards a career in nursing.
