tallytwiggy: Regarding the minor, I think it’s useless. When you are taking actual nursing classes which involve both lecture days and clinical days, you will not have enough time to do anything else as it will consume majority of your time so let alone a minor. There will come a semester where you will study geriatric and psychiatric nursing. You will also cover adult health nursing (medical/surgical) which is the largest bulk of nursing, pediatric, and obstetrics & neonotal. Technically, you will know the most important stuff of all of the above to pass the licensing board. But keep in mind, nursing specialization for skills and knowledge will not come until you are actually already working in a specific type of nursing (psychiatry & geriatrics for example) and you are dealing with that group of population regularly.
