I currently have a bachelor's degree in business and have been working in banking for 6 years but need/want to switch careers. I just started pre-req's this year at PCC and am only taking one class per term for the time being while I continue to work full time. I'm also volunteering at the VA Hospital once a week. Eventually I will start taking more classes per term and I figure it will take me 2-3 years to complete my pre-req's. I know there are 2 year RN programs available but ideally I would like to get my BSN. I'm still doing a lot of research but I am wondering what types of programs are out there and what are my best chances for getting in? What kind of costs would I be looking at? My husband has agreed to be the sole bread winner while I go back to school but I know I will be needing to apply for financial aid/student loans to help us get through. I expect it take a lot of time and hard work but I also don't want to take 7 years to get into a program. Thank you for any suggestions!
