    Absolutely! I know of several nurses who went back to medical school and became MDs. You just have to make sure you can invest all that time in school. It's hard to have a life of your own for awhile.

    Yeah, its actually probably better, cuz you get to see how important nurses actually are before becoming a doctor. That a way you will appreciate your nurses more if you become a doctor. Cuz alot of doctors can be assholes to their nurses. So yeah, I think its a good thing. (Im a LPN, but I have no desire to be doctor) Good Luck!
