I am thinking of going back to school for an Associates RN after being a medical transcriptionist for twenty five years. I am a little overwhelmed at all that might entail but nursing has been a lifelong dream. Anyone started nursing school in GA at my age? And if so, did you find it harder to get a job after graduation? I'm not the best at math (OK I stink) but other than that, my GPA was quite high during my last college semester. Unfortunatly my biology and micro are too old to count now so I have to retake them. As for the math, I'm worried that I might not be able to do all the dosage calculations but I did notice at the hospital here in Dalton that the nurses did not appear to be doing hand calcuations but more relying on the pumps and computers. Is that the case? Any other advice/info would be so appreciated. Wondering what the going rate is for a new grad RN around here?
