Florence Nightngale could tell you...joke...1. you have to have a character that feels the need to want to help disabled....different schools offer different courses, but in the mean time, check out a hospital or a retirement home, and get your feet wet as a nurses aid. You might then think again!

Nursing courses are offered by Medical colleges and even some hospitals. You may better contact nearby Government or other prominent private hospital for exact guidance. You may have a talk with the trained nurse of any hospital.

You have to take a pre entrance exam and get accepted first. GREAT field to go into, pay is nice and there is HIGH demand for Nurses.
