I've been reading this site for the past couple of days and have some questions, if you don't mind.
First, I'm going to be starting an LNA course from LNA Health Careers on January 20th at Dover Rehab.....does this program include a BLSC or should I look for that class somewhere else?
Second, I'm not sure which direction I want to start off in - LTC or Hosp. Can LNA's in the Dover/Rochester or even Concord area PM about their place of employment and starting pay w/shift diffs? I'm hoping to work the evening shift (overnight) which will be easier for my family. I'm thinking starting in LTC for the State reimbursement of the program but I wish to work in a hospital, as I'm inquiring now about going back to school for my ADN. My goal is to be an Oncology Nurse.
Third, I'm turning 40 in 2007 and is this something that I really can obtain as a goal? Would love to hear from other "older" collage bound people!
