Lvn earning potential

  1. Hello my fellow nurses. I am a new grad I just recently passed nclex and waiting for my license in the mail, which is taking forever (CA). I am also finishing up my pre-reqs to bridge over to a rn-adn program. My question is: what is the best way to increase my earning potential as a lvn? I know experience is huge but what about certain certifications? I want to save as much as possible before starting a rn program. I am a single mother and I don't want to have the burden of working full time while going to school and taking care of my 7 year old. Although I know it can be done since I did it while in lvn School, however I feel like the time I spent at work could have been more time spent with my son and studying. For that reason I would like to save for at least a year just to have some sort of safety net while in school. Also, I would greatly appreciate it if you shared how you prepared for nursing school financially. Did you take out private loans, save money, scholarships, ect...
    Thank you for your response. I really appreciate it
