I am a single mother of a one year old. I just started a new job at a hospital as a per diem unit secretary in NSICU. I am enrolled to start my BSN(4 or 5 years long)...there is a 1 year long LPN program that I could attend full time starting October in my area. Knowing I could be a nurse in a year and be making way more than I am making now sounds tempting. I would love to be able to do the BSN, but I have a child to support and I would really like to buy a house within in 2 years, actually 1 year!
What would you do if you were in my shoes? I am seriously thinking about getting my LPN first, then work and find a employer that would pay for me to get my ADN or BSN.
Please give me some input! I would greatly appreciate it!
