Hi, I am having a tough time with my choice to return to nusing school. I am wondering if it is worth pusuing my R.N status when I am almost 40. I have been a L.P.N. in canada for the last 6 years. We are really limited with our skills here. I work in two active medical hosp where all meds are given out by the R.N. I guess I just want to be able to give total nusing care to my patients, and in order to perform all nursing skills here you must be a R.N. I have found acouple of nursing schools on usa soil which offer 2year associate programs but I am not sure how long they will take to complete. I just wondered if any of you nurses out there had upgraded and how you found the work load between family and work obligations. AM I to old to consider this option? I welcome your opinions.
