Hello, i am a new member to this site. I came on here because i am very interested in pursuing a nursing career. I am 18 years old and out of high school , the only this that is holding me back right now from starting off my 2 year associate for RN is my financial situation , because i live on my own and work full time , it is very hard to just cut my working to go to school because then i wont be able to pay any rent or anything...
this frustrates me ... i have thought also about taking quick cna courses but im not sure if i should do that . what i want to do is just get a feel of being some type of nurse .. ... i know cna's do not make much at all.... but what do you guys think...

Take as many related courses now and get them out of the way. I had to work full time myself and that's what I did. It's going to take longer, but that's what I had to do. There are plenty of courses you can take like English, etc. a few courses at a time so you can continue to work.
I wouldn't go the CNA route if it's a pay cut. You can always do that later if you want the nursing experience.
Good luck and welcome to the site.
