Advice Please

  1. I am 33 with a two year old and 9 month old and I want to go to nursing school and I am thinking Chamberlain in the new year. I have been an ER Tech for 8 years but my salary certainly does not support my kids. I love what I do and I want to go to Chamberlain for the fact that it is an accelerated program with the gen eds included as I would be starting with no credits. Any advice is appreciated.

    If you have no gen eds then chamberlain may be the way to go, 3 years doesn't seem so bad just be sure to make time for yourself. I just finished at Resurrection university and it was only 16 months but all your pre-req's needed to be completed before hand. I do know that they accepted online courses from portage learning so I took my life span, general chem, and A&P 1&2 as online courses just to speed up the process.

    What is portage learning?

    It has online college courses and some schools, not all, accept their credits.
