ok so ive already gone to kaplan and talked to one of their reps about their rn program.. ive let all the info marinate for the past couple months.. and ive decided to go with them for their RN program because of time..
However, i do not want to do the other programs they were trying to sell to me.. i.e. pcat, MA or CNA.. i have a lot of family in the industry and they are all helping me out.. and have advised me to go CNA through ROP to help with costs..
so my question now. is if i go and complete the cna course through ROP, whats my next step?
I know i should go and talk to someone from kaplan, but i just do not trust them not to try and sell me their other programs.
what will i need to apply to the RN program? how long will i have to work as a CNA to have sufficient medical experience (im currently a massage therapist and i know that would probbably not be considered any medical experience, though the rep was gonna look in it. but i didnt see what for).. and what tests will i need and so forth? and how long exactly is the RN program for kaplan.. i plan to get my bsn, through uop, but later on in my career...
ive looked into was National.I have a friend whos a rep there and she helped me out in understanding their program.. and the only thing deterring me away from there is the time issue..
I know im asking a lot of questions that should have been answered my first round about when i went and talked to the kaplan rep but i kid you not she talked so fast and i felt so uneased by her car sales man approach that I knew i had to do my own research.
SO if anyone out there can please help me out and point me in the right directions i would most gladly appreciate it very much.
and this is off topic queston but lets say you are license as a RN in california, what would you need if anything needed if you were to move out of state, like to the Nyc?
