New to nursing

  1. I'm in San diego, CA. I'm 43 and became a CNA and Health Care Essentials last year(requirements for LVN program) and I am stalled. I'm thinking of taking an LVN program through one of those expensive schools rather than at the Community College because of the long wait a the public schools. I know it's expensive but much quicker. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Public college is cheaper and a long waiting list...
    Pay more now...at least your feet are already in
    Once that happen...getting into the RN program is easier....
    I was an LPN in New York...now I am an RN....
    Take my advice....
    Go for the expensive one...
    Good luck!
