I am a single mom of two children and have wanting to pursue my goal as an RN since my wonderful gram passed away. I signed up for college last September and thought that things would work out because i was on unemployment and signed up for the extended plan called the 599 plan so that they continue to pay you while you go to college. I registered and enrolled in RN classes and was so excited. A couple weeks before college started unemployment sent me a letter that they could not release the funds for the 599 plan due to cutbacks in the budget.... BAM what a slap that was....so i settled for a job that was not what i wanted.
But it is what i had to do to take care of me and my children. I really want to pursue my career and fufill my goal of becoming an RN. I would finally be able to have things and stop living week to week and when an emergency comes up be set back for two months......When my gram was dying and i was helping to take care of her, she said she thought becoming a RN was something i should do and that she had a dream i was in the hall as an RN. And i really want to go to work everyday and feel in some way that i am making a difference, to touch lives. Anyway, sorry for going on and on...are there any types of programs where you can work and do RN classes at a hospital or some other facility and get paid for it. I can't afford to go to school full time and have no income. I can work full time and go to school part time but then i never see my children.
Any advice on how i can take care of my family and become an RN. I won't get into detail but financially, emotionally and spiritually i am exhuasted, trying to make ends meet and not doing what i want to do...so what do i do???
