Should I take a couple years off to take classes for medical school after I graduate?

I am currently in my second year as an undergraduate and majoring in nursing. However, I plan on going to medical school after I graduate. Do you recommend that I take a couple of years between graduation and going to medical school to take the classes that pre-med students are taking now to prepare for the MCAT/medical school or should I go straight into medical school after graduation if I can?

Hi there!

After I graduated from Undergrad, I took time off to work and study for the MCAT. I was a bio/premed major so it was expected of me to go straight into medical school. I took the MCAT spring of my 3rd year of Undergrad and did poorly despite taking a prep course. So based on that, I knew I wasn’t ready for the rigors of med school, especially at 22 years old. If youre majoring in nursing, I dont think theres much of a difference in curriculum but if your college has a premed office, I would go talk to an advisor. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, just post them below.
