Or more like reassurance I am doing the right thing.
So my ultimate goal is for a BSN.
Now I currently have to work full time and my job does not provide tuition reimbusment at all and is not all that stable.
There are no ASN programs near me. They are all BSN...and I really cannot wait that long to make a career change. I need to get out of where I am asap and I want to go into the healthcare field and not another office job.
There is a technical school and my choices are
1. LPN that I would have wait two whole terms before I can even start and it would be at a campus 45 min away.
2. Surgical Tech that I can start next term and at the campus 15 min away.
My plan is to be a Surgical Tech then do that maybe part time while I go for my BSN. I love people and patients and as long as I help people and learn I will be happy and who know I might love the OR and get a big heads up to be an OR RN? no?
Plus I did a job search
in my area and there seems to be more jobs for Surgical techs than LPN's and the pay is about the same.
You guys seem to know your stuff realy well so I would like any ones opinion or reassurance. Thank you in advance.:spin:
