It seems like I receive an envelope every other week from the VM program, and I just can't stomach to pay those fees or the roughly $2000 through AALNC. Are there any other more affordable programs out there? (Or, are there any $1200-2000 programs that actually teach in a college-type 8-16 week format?)
What type of education is actually required to work as an LNC? Do you HAVE to have training through one of those programs, or if you have the knowledge and ability required, do some practice as an LNC without an actual "certification"?
Thanks - I know I've been asking a lot of questions!
