Hi, I have no medical experience. I joined the Army years ago to become a combat medic with the option to become an RN. I live in Sacramento, CA. I want to become an RN however, the junior college route is not something that peaks my interest due to the long wait and applicant pool. We have 2 big name vocational schools (Carrington and Kaplan) and 2 local school district schools that offer LVN programs. There is another voc school (Unitek) which I have never heard of. I am actually considering relocating in order to avoid the LVN route however, that would be an absolute last resort.
I would like to know the wisest route to go about obtaining my RN education. CSU Sacramento is not accepting applications for new students this upcoming year so that option is out. If there isn't a logical way to go about getting my Bachelors then I was thinking go for my LVN and then do a bridge program. What do you all think?
