Hi everyone! I just joined the other day. I am at the beginning of the road to becoming an RN. I am taking a CNA class at the end of the month. This fall I will be taking my prerequisites and hopefully next fall I will be admitted into the nursing school. Here is the thing. I just found out that the two community college nursing programs
are not accredited. The BSN is the only one that is. That is over an hour away from me. Not that I would mind the drive and if I don't get into the ADN program I will just go and get the BSN. Eventually, I was planning to get a BSN while I was working as an rn. Here is the thing. My marriage is not going well, and hasn't for awhile. My husband was dxed with Bi polar disorder a year and a half ago and it is making the marriage nearly impossible. Plus I have to wonder how long he will be stable enough to keep a job etc. So it is imperative for me to get in and out as quickly as I can, because I may not always be able to count on him to help support the kids and I. Is an accredited program that important or will I be alright?
