hi guys, i have a problem. im new to new jersey, i have a husband and two little divaz...they are 9 and 5. now, i just got accepted into a ma program and a lpn program. i dont know which one to chose. my husband works 5am-5pm two weeks out of the month and 5pm-5am two weeks. now i have been a stay at home mom since i had my oldest daughter...they are both very attatched to me & with my husbands schedule i cant work crazy hours. so, my concerns are the hours. which one of the two jobs have the best hours that would work with my familys schedule? please help me...
Is the MA program for like office work or is it like assisting the doctor in his office?
Personally, I would go with the LPN, because that is a better stepping stone to an RN program in your future.
But if you need "office" hours, then the MA might be best, but do consider that an MA program, depending on what it is, may not be something that will help you if you decide to go on for RN one day.
I've read threads on here where people think the MA program was a waste of time and money.
Check it out and consider all your options before committing to it.
