Hi, thank you for the advice. I did call the technical school today, and they are sending me all of the information about their LPN program, fees, etc. Only thing is, the LPN program is only full-time, Mondays-Fridays 8am-3:45pm. Right now, that schedule is not good for me, as I have an 18 month old, and also babysit my 2 nieces during the weekdays. My husband couldn't watch them because of his nightshift schedule, and he sleeps during the day.
I was really hoping they had the program part-time and night classes. My husband wants me not to give up, and to keep looking at all other options, but he said, if I have to wait until my youngest starts kindergarten (in 3.5 yrs) to begin my schooling, then that's fine too.
I am going to ask my dad, who is retired and stays home, if he'd be willing to watch the kids for a year, while I go to school, but he's not exactly a kid person, and I'm not going to hold my breath, lol.
As far as just going for the RN instead... right now, I know that I want to be a LPN. I am not sure if being an RN is for me, but I am going to look into it also.
Any info anyone wants to give me about being an RN too, is greatly appreciated.
