I want to go to medical school and hopefully make it in the field of neurology someday, but am having concerns since everyone is saying having a nursing degree may hinder you from getting inton a good med school.
I want to be a APRN for a few years until I go to med school, but a lot of my friends in med schools are telling me this is a bad decision.
I feel like if I spend time preparing for the MCATS and work in the field as an APRN I can develop the experience and knowledge expected by Med School's.
I'm still concerned. Anyone have any advice?

I got in with an undergrad degree in psychology. My friend got in with a degree in French. Most of my class got in doing some sort of science, but really I agree with CaribMD in saying that you should just pick something you like doing.
