I have decided to switch careers from construction to nursing. Weird huh? :-)
So I am in the information gathering stage, and have a few questions I'm hoping some of you can help to answer.
I have a family and need to continue to work full time to support them while going to school. This means the schooling of course will take longer. I will be taking a significant pay cut when I do make the actual transition, so I am trying to increase my chances for a good starting salary every way I can. So here is the bottom line, it looks like it could take me about 5-6 years to finsh the program with an AA. I have noticed a lot of the jobs being posted are asking for a BSN (preferred). If I go that route, I'm looking at a possible additional 3+ years. I just turned 40 years old, I am convinced this is what I'm going to do, I am just looking for some experienced advice on how best for me to attack this.
