I'm a LPN with 18 mo's of experience, age late 40's.. Have a wife & 3 young kids. Have worked as charge nurse for 15 mo's in ltc setting & 3 mo's as PDN ped's.
I need to research and determine what nursing career path to take. I will be starting a LPN to RN bridge program next yr. I've read nursing blogs on Travel nursing, Nurse anesthetists, APRN, and Nurse practitioners. I need to earn more than $20-22/hour as an RN in the local not for profit hospital. I have extensive experience c/ heart babies (I have one). Would like to work in PICU/NICU. Need to shadow in that environment. I would really appreciate any feedback!!
