I am 20 years old, engaged, with no kids. Currently working as an MA in the lovely state of California.
My question is complicated yet simple. My ultimate goal is to become a PA (physician assistant)
The thing is that with all the budget cuts and work I've fallen behind in my pre-reqs to apply for the program.
At this rate I might be looking to apply around late 2012, early 2013.
I went to the Baldy View ROP MA program, I love being an MA but I just don't wanna be one FOREVER
At Baldy View they offer a LVN program for about $3000 and lately it's been interesting me to become a nurse,
which is something I never found intrest before. I would like to apply for the program but then I for some reason feel like
I would be loosing focus on becoming a PA, then I though, hmmm why not become an NP?
Do you lovely nurses out there think the LVN program would be a good step for me to take? Granted I would become an LVN and work cus a girl has bills to pay but then I get confused as to what comes next. Or should I just remain an MA and straight shoot it to a PA? Or NP?
I am young and confused. Please do enlighten me with advice and wisdom. Thank you
