hey val.....I go to lakeland! I'm starting the second yr of it(well, i'm joining in since i got my LPN). Let me know if u need anything with classes. lakeland is gonna be about as close as u can get. olney's further than lakeland. I'm getting my ADN, and then gonna get my BSN at SIUE in time. no rush for it around st. anthony's. And u can commute there. Acutally have an RN i work with who just got her ADN thru lakeland, BSN at SIUE and alot of her stuff was done at kluthe, but thru SIUE. And another RN is working on hers. I think she only had to go to SIUE maybe once a week...if that. why would he have to leave his job because ur going back to school? message me if u want sometime.
You can get it at Lakeland! Why don't you want to go there? ALso neaby is Milikin (much more expensive) and Parkland in Champaign, but you would pay out the nose if you went there since Lakeland has an RN program.
After you get your RN you can finish the BSN at U of I in Champaign.

I am from Effingham and start my general education classes Aug. 23 at Lake Land College (community college). I was wondering if anyone knew where there is a college (fairly close) that I could get my RN. My husband has a good job and I don't want him to have to leave it unless it is completely necessary.
If anyone can help that would be great!!

I am going to school to become a RN and just starting my general classes Aug. 23. I didn't know if I should get my CNA when I am in the process of getting my RN or if when I get to nursing school I am already a CNA. Or is that something you have to do separate. Basically I am wondering if any of the classes you take to become an RN make you a CNA anyway!?
Thank you all for your help. I have decided to get my CNA through the junior college I am attending right now and then working at the hospital. All your advice really helped me in deciding what I should do!
I have known my whole life that I have wanted to do something to help people, and I think that going into nursing is the answer! I have decided that I want to get my BSN to become a registered nurse. But that is just it, I am not really sure, and I feel like an idiot for asking, but if I get my BSN does that automatically make me an RN or are there other steps involved? I have had no experience in nursing. I of course want to get experience, I know that to work at the hospital near me you have to at least be a CNA, I just don't know how to go about getting that!? Does anyone have any suggestions to help me out?
