I am a single mother who currently is in accounting and wish to change my career to nursing. I have a BA in Accounting, but I do not enjoy my work. I started off my college career 15 years ago towards a nursing degree, took all of my pre-reqs, but couldn't continue to go to nursing school because there were (and still are) no evening/weekend ADN programs. I became divorced and I had to keep my fulltime job to support my child and chose plan B-Accounting because I could get my entire degree at night. Why, 15 years later and with all this online technology, are there still no night nursing programs
for those of us who have to keep our salaries until we finish school? (at least nothing in Illinois that I am aware of).
Can someone in the nursing education field tell me why this is and if there are any plans to accomodate mid-life career changers who can only attend school in the evening? Any direction you can give me is very much appreciated.
