  • You could always pay extra money (whether out of pocket or through financial aid) to take the class if the subject interests you.

    Well, here for the two points and for saying I second the commenter who gave the space medicine advice.

    Possibly as an elective but every school has it’s own rules

    Not sure if that would be acceptable to the course structuring but if not, anyway, why let that stop you from completing an astronomy class too. If you are interested in a subject you could find plenty of reasons not to pursue it, but why not just please yourself and go for it anyway. Don't let others tell you not to if that is what you want.

    No, both the fields are unrelated.

    Nursing programs are pretty highly structured & might not allow for many elective courses during the program.

    To add to the other responses, tell your advisor that you're giving some long-term thought to becoming involved in "space medicine", which is a growing field that includes the doctors and nurses who prepare astronauts and treat them upon their return.

    I would think, especially if you are studying at a university. You are expected to have a well rounded education. Also, nursing (medical science) and astronomy would both fall under the "STEM" umbrella.

    That depends on the institution. Most nursing programs have room for some science electives, so the answer will probably be yes...but there could be SOME schools where this is impossible.
