Quote from Fallon
Thanks BumblebeeRN! This is my situation, I am currently a Real Estate Agent and as you know that industry is on a major decline. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and decided last fall that I wanted to become an RN. I went to the community college last semester and completed Microbiology and received a B. I now have to take A&P I before I can apply for the nursing program. I would not have a chance to be admitted until Fall 2009 and would not graduate until Spring 2011 and that is if I am accepted. So I figured entering an LPN program would give me a headstart in nursing. I could begin this August 2008 and graduate August 2009. And then move on to either an LPN to RN program or an LPN to BSN Program. But I do understand what you are saying about the schedule, Monday thru Thursday 7:15- 3:00, does seem very intense.
With a Bachelor's already you definitely can get in to FIU or FAU nursing program!!
I am sure that you will be able to get into any program because you already have proven that you can complete a university level degree!!!
Look into the universities- the program is tough because it's condensed in one year- but people do it all the time!!
UM has a program too- Barry- all the other schools- you just have to take the pre-reqs.
Don't settle for a vocational degree when you can actually go to a university for a year and get your RN degree in a year!!
FIU has an info session next june 19- for their programs so look into that.
(I don't mean to tell you what to do- but its a good idea with your resume to apply to universities- and for sure you can get in!!)
