I am a FT stay at home mom and have wanted to be an RN as long as I can remember. I have a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts already and want to go back to school, but can't afford to put 2 kids in daycare while I go to classes - so an ABSN is pretty much out of the question. I thought about doing ECPI to get my LPN at night, then working pt for a while and getting my RN at night from Durham Tech doing the LPN - RN track. Eventually get my BSN or MSN online through UNC or ECU. Thoughts? I know ECPI is a trade school, but at least it is accredited by the NCBON and gets me started on the right track.
