Need advice about job

  1. I am a nursing assistant and I want to go to school for either lpn or radiology, but mainly lpn. The problem is my job won't let me go to weekends to go to school. I've been there four months now. So I decided to go work for an agency instead. I applied at maxim healthcare and they called me. Lpn classes start in may and september. I plan on putting in my application this friday. They have tutoring for the math and the woman said people who take the tutoring passes the math. The test dates are april 1st, 8th, and 22nd. My friend was telling me to wait to see if I get in school before I leave since I've been there for a while. But I don't wanna keep putting school off, I wanna start now. I'm thinking about my future and things I wanna do. I just wanna be able to make up my own schedule and stuff. I feel like why wait because either way I plan on going to school. My co worker was telling me not to keep putting off school. Should I leave and go work for an agency to go to school?

    Well, I wouldn't quit a job unless I knew what was going to happen with school. What school are you going to go to? You might want to look around at different programs that would maybe have schedules that will mesh with your work schedule. I know Clark State Community College has an LPN program & so does the MVCTC.

    Agency work will allow you he time needed for a very busy year as an LPN student. I hope that you continue to seek your dreams. Is working while attending school mandatory for you? The year of school is intense, eating up hours of homework and clinical time late into the nights (depending on your personal learning abilities, and if you want to graduate in the top 1% of your class.) Agency work, for you as a nursing assistant, may also provide you with a night time job, where you can study while a baby or elder sleeps. Good luck to you.
