need advice, need help

  1. hi, everyone!

    i want to be a nurse but can't out university schedules in my schedule. i have to work during the day, and then, be with my kids at night so my DH can work.

    is there any school that offers LPN or RN course online? Most of the online schools I've seen offer RN to BSN/MSN, LPN to RN ... are there no schools offering RN? or do i have to do CNA to LPN to RN?

    if i do, can you recommend any online schools that offer CNA and/or LPN?

    I saw the website of Wisconsin Oshkosh but they require campus residency. I'm not sure I can do that. I live in MD, my work is in MD. clinical rotations under supervision in my state would be great!

    please, help me!!! thank you!!

    Try www.chamberlain.edu You do your lecture online and then do your clinicals in your hometown. However, you would have to travel to either St. Louis or Columbus, OH once a semester for validation.
    They did away with their LPN program, so you have go the full two years to achieve the RN license (you use to be able to stop half way through for the LPN portion).
    Search this forum for Chamberlain (they use to be called Deaconess). I'm sure it will turn up a great deal of information.
    Good luck to you.
