I have once again run into a problem with my school. I am supposed to attend a community college this fall to take a couple of prereq's I have left before applying to an RN program at my university. Well, once again the CC completely gave me misleading info regarding about my financial aid, and basically it isn't going to pay for much at all, and because I attended college years ago, I am not eligible for loans at this CC.
Anyway, because I have three children, and need the money, I can't afford to quit working and go to school days at the university just yet.
My question, since I only have 5 prereq's before being eligible for RN program, should I just plug along and go that route, or go to the LPN school at a vo-tech school about 2 miles away from my house, then later bridge over? I honestly have no idea of the differences between LPN and RN. I guess I would like to hear from the ones that have gone this route, and if they recommend it. It just seems so silly to go the LPN route, when I only have 2 more semesters until I can apply to RN. But financially, I could get the LPN and work while going to RN, right?
Sorry I rambled so long, I just thought I had everything worked out, but today when I got the letter about the financial aid, it just blew me away.
Thanks for listening....I am beginning to think I just need to forget this....
