I passed my written test, and my diploma of completion is ready and will be handed to me on Monday. I am making room in my time to go back to school for the skills practice class that helps us to get ready for the state board exam. To be honest... I do not have the money to pay for the state board at this time. It's $150, in case I haven't mentioned it I'm 21, unemployed, live with my parents. I was going to college for nursing but due to loans and my insecurity on whether it's what I truly wanted I stopped going.
I decided to go for the PCT program so that I can get my foot in the door and serve me in the meantime.
I know that my parents will be willing to pay it for me, but 1.I would like to practice the skills class very well before taking the test rather than to pay for it and fail, and 2. I do feel very uncomfortable with my parents paying this for me after they helped me out with paying for the program.
Do you think it's possible to find a job with just a diploma from school? At least in the meantime until I'm ready to take the state board?
I live in New York City (in case that influences).
