Hi Alyssa, I'm volunteering every Monday night @ DeKalb Medical Center. Mostly I help the Unit Secretary, but everyone knows that I'm planning on nursing school
and most seem open to me observing and answering my questions. Last week I watched an IV procedure, next week I hope to see a C-section :hatparty:
You go to KSU? How is it? I'm looking at GPC for my pre-req's since it's the most affordable, then GPC, GSU, KSU or Clayton for the actual nursing program. It will all depend on financing since I'm self suporting (and older, 38). I've already paid off one student loan, so I hope to find a hospital loan forgiveness program. Hope to go for a BSN, if not I'll shoot for GPC's ADN and then work on a bridge program.
Do you know anything about such programs in this area? Also, will they pay for your pre-req's, or just actual nursing classes?
Thanks for any info you may have...
