First of all - I admire both of you for going back to school and completing the GED. An education is the only way to get ahead nowadays - in my opinion. I wish you both luck and yes - you can do it! Believe in yourself, apply for grants and scholarships
and you're on your way.

I think your best bet would be to get in touch with the nursing program at CPCC, Presbyterian, and some of the other schools in the area and ask them directly about their admission requirements and schedules.
