I'm sure that there are many trainings and part time jobs available for those interested in being an RN. Start with the trainings and if you enjoy them move onto the simplest of of medical jobs.
Are you good at (or can put up with a lot of) math and science? this will be critical in your schooling to be an RN. can you handle the sight of blood? Can you work under pressure? Are you comfortable around random people? I suggest being a volunteer, or maybe following around a nurse for a day at one of your local hospitals. Which is different from being a nurse in a doctors office. There are many different types of RNs. Ask questions in these types of places like what do you like the most about your job? what do you wish you could change about your job? what is the hardest part of your job? Remember that there are tons and tons of offices and hospitals out there and they are a BUSINESS. You could potentially start working in a place that doesn't seem hunky dory or happy. My best advice to you is to not assume the first few places you work outlines how the whole industry is. If you like what you did in your schooling then it's all about finding the right fit when it comes to the place you work at. If you have had this desire for a while and you want to be an RN through your senior year, I say pursue it with all you got. You may start your basics in medical and find out another specialty is more up your alley, and that is perfectly normal!
