I am new here and looking for information/guidance/advice. I'm 28 and graduated with a bachelors in accounting in 2010. I graduated late after having my child.
well, since graduation I have not been able to get any job or experience in accouting. I am currently working in a call center making 34k a year, which I feel is pathetic and I am totally underpaid. I need a career change and not sure what I want to do. My schedule is so tight with a small child that going back to school almost seems impossible.
I am thinking of maybe doing an LPN program, since its usually about a year long. I want to do that but I think it is impossible due to my schedule. They do have night lpn programs ,but they are 2 yrs , and I think it might not be worth it.
I am in MA and I have friends that completed an LPN program and currently get 50-55k a year. That is more than I will ever make. Being that I am 28 with no experience in accounting or anyhing for that matter.
My other option is to maybe do a bsn program. I would complete the prereq's now until end of fall and apply to a bsn or accelerated bsn program.
I always wanted to be a nurse and feel its too late but want to do it!
life is hard right now as a single parent and need to be able to provide for my child better.
which path do you think would be good to get in to nursing?
