My name is Cindy and Im in FLA. Just wanted to say Hi and Get some info. on Excelsior Collage's associate degree program. Im a single mom and have got to get that RN behind my name ASAP! I am sick and tired or making 10-15 Dollars less an hour doing the same job as the RN'S! I work at a hospital here and I'm responsible for hanging blood and pushing Morphine iv and its all ok in FLA!( but of course, they don't have to pay you as much!). Anybody want to share any thoughts?

too many nurses put off going back to school until they completely lose track of where they want to go
check and see if your facility will help with tution
a recognized school may be more acceptable to a lot of employers though i know of some very capable nurses to did o line
if doing on net get some study buddies.
