Let me just start out by saying my ultimate goal is to be a mother/baby nurse..have always wanted to do that! Now I am just stuck at finding a school that I won't be in for 3-4 years! I want to get into the workforce asap, but realize I need at least 2 years of schooling. There aren't many options here where I live, but I have an idea and need to know if I am just being too naive and wishy washy, or if it would work.
There is a local school here that offers a diploma in Practical Nursing that can be finished within a year and a half, but I do realize this comes with limitations and cuts my salary in half (not a huge issue, but still kinda sucks). Should I take this, and then try an online school such as University of Phoenix to bridge to a RN? Or is this going to be difficult to do? (and I am not sure if this school is even the best for online)? My two problems are I don't exactly have four years to give up for school, and I live in the Raleigh area where there is either online, LPN, or 4 year+ schools
.....any advice?? I am desperate for answers!
