Hi I'm a 22y/o nonexperienced CNA (just got my certification endorsed) moving from out of state to attend nursing school then settle down in the Maryland area. Ultimately I want to get into pediatrics, preferably the NICU.
I am looking at starting my educational route that will get me there. I started my prerequisites at the University of the Virgin Islands then took 2years off to be a flight attendant. Now, more than ever I know what I want to pursue. I'm looking for schools and wondering if I should take my time and go the ADN route through Community College of Baltimore County CCBC, work a year then do an RN-BSN at Towson or University of Maryland or just transfer straight into a BSN program.
The answer may seem obvious to just transfer but I'm concerned for my GPA which is a sorry 2.8 due to switching from pre-med, failing trigonometry and then switching degree to nursing.
All advice appreciated.
