I am already an LPN and have my license in Arizona and Hawai'i. I want to go back to school in 12 months and take classes to get my RN. Is is hard to get into the Maui Community College RN classes if I'm already an LPN?
Also, out-of-state tuition is about 5x more expensive than in-state tuition. The admissions office makes it sound like it's easy to become a resident. All I need to do is open a bank account, register to vote, and file Hawai'i state income taxes. Is it that easy?
By the way, I live in AZ now. My honey has already accepted a good paying job; we move to Maui in February. I know the job market stinks, and I am not expecting to work much the first year I'm here. We'll live on his salary. I'll do volunteer work to keep myself busy.
If you live on the islands, PLEASE RESPOND! I need your perspective. Also, please don't use abbreviations. Please write out the words so that I can understand what you're typing. Thanks, in advance, for writing.
