Hello folks, I've been checking this website and the internet in general for information about my specific circumstances and have not yet found them listed anywhere else. I will be 27 in September and have been out of high school for almost ten years. I never took my SATs and spent my twenties traveling and racking up some great experiences and memories. Now that I am settling down and looking at my future, I'm not necessarily regretting any of my decisions but I am wishing I had thought more about my future. For about two years I've been looking at nursing as a career not only because it runs in my family but because the qualities it demands fit me very well. I have had a history of not following through and over thinking things; not anymore, I have set my mind to this and am going completely for it.
However because of my history (or lack of) with school, I am completely lost on what to do here. I was looking at Chamberlain because they offer the "fast track" program to get your Bachelor RN in three years, but their admission requirements list a need for your high school GPA, ACT scores, college GPA etc etc. I have none of these, and since I've been out of high school for so long I'm not sure I can even get my transcripts anymore, not to mention that they aren't any reflection of who I have grown into since. It's also worth mentioning that although my girlfriend and I will be living in Phoenix for another year, we might move next year. She is a teacher and although we like much of what is provided here, it's just not quite home for us. Do the nursing credits and/or schooling transfer well to other nursing programs? I know that you can transfer to another Chamberlain school with a few stipulations.
So I'm a 27 year old guy, smart enough to realize that I am an intelligent and well thought individual with the characteristics required to be a nurse with zero higher education experience and no high school history to brag about. I lived in Pennsylvania my entire life, and will have lived in Phoenix for a year at the end of this month. What are my best options for pursuing my future as an RN? I apologise if this thread is a little open!
