I am in need of your insight and practical suggestions. I currently hold both a graduate degree specializing in Early Childhood Education (if this means anything or will shorten my enrollment in school) and a Bachelor's in Liberal Arts and I am strongly considering veering off the path slightly for a career in nursing. I am frankly looking for more flexibility and my current work (totally out of my field, but I enjoy it) may go away due to the recent changes in the automotive industry. I have a young child and I can no longer work the regular 9-5...it hurts my heart too much.
So, here's what I am thinking...I thought I would enroll in a local (inexpensive) LVN program for a year beginning in September 0f 2010 and then go from there. I am thinking that since I already have a background in pediatrics, my knowledge base will continue to get some use.
Any advice? Suggestions? What would you do?
Thanks a bunch!
