As an incoming freshman, I knew I wanted to pursue a degree in biology because eventually, I want to be a nurse. What I didn’t know was the amount of effort I would have to put in to get my foot in the door. OR the type of things that are required from students who eventually want to be nurses. The best advice I could give you incoming students regardless if you are a freshman or transfer that is interested in biology is to DO YOUR RESEARCH and get going on your certifications, licensures, internships, clinical hours or anything else that your graduate program is going to require from you.
