I am considering a career change into nursing. I already have a bachelors in an unrelated field and have been looking at accelerated bsn programs but after all of my research they all sound beyond competitive to get into (I have no health care experience) and I still need to take pre-reqs. At this rate itll be years until Im actually in the working in the field. Anyway Im thinking LPN may be the direction to go for me b/c I cant afford to be out of the workforce too long (family to consider), will be taking a pay cut no matter if I go LPN or RN first and I figured LPN will require a smaller amount of loans (since I already have quite a bit from my first bachelors). My plan is to obtain my LPN then get a job with tuition assistance or a worksite program to eventually get my BSN. I saw Pickens Tech has a 9 month LPN program and I wanted to see if anyone has heard anything good or bad or even been through the program? Any input or comments would be greatly appreciated!
