Hi :)

  1. Hello everyone! I started here a few days ago, and so far enjoy the site. I am currently a CNA in both Tennessee and Georgia for 7 years, and look forward to furthering my career. This morning I take my COMPASS exam to get into Dalton State College with the LPN Program, but something tells me to go ahead with the RN Program, so I'm not really certain what I will do. I have had CNA experience in LTC, ALF and the ER. I would have to say my favourite experience would have been the ER, as anything could happen at any given time, but due to my health, I ended up going to ALF for the time being. My dream is to get back into the ER eventually, if not, work in the hospital setting or work in Europe.

    Hello and welcome!!! In my opinion I would go for the RN program. If you're currently a CNA then check to see if they will help with the costs of schooling. There are companies who have tuition reimbursement plans or something better. Congrats to you for continuing your education. Doesn't Darton have an ADN program? If so, I'd go for it!!! Keep us posted!!

    No tuition reimbursement for my current company. The company is toooo small sadly. I really need to go ahead and get done with education, now, for actually I now have plenty of time. Dalton has an LPN Program, ADN Program, and ADN to BSN Program. To be honest, the ADN and LPN program does not differ to greatly in hours, but I just want to get something done, and do well at it! Now, I am just waiting to hear back to see if I have admission - I passed my COMPASS exam, so I am pretty excited
