Hi everyone, I'm in quite a conundrum, so any opinions would be wonderful!
I'm looking at two nursing schools
that offer ADNs (and eventual BSNs). One is the Lancaster General college of nursing (near my home) and the other is a community college program located in NJ (where the fiance lives..sigh). Lancaster's programs starts 6 months earlier than the program in NJ, BUT if I go with jersey I could work in a hospital for a year as an aide before I start nursing school
. I do have about 2 and a half years of previous hospital experience (working at a patient transporter at TRHMC). And my fiance is willing to move to Lancaster if I'd like to pursue that program, (though he works at a hospital now and would be able to get me a position as an aide in NJ..).
I'm really torn as to what to do. Should I just get school over with ASAP? Or would more experience help in the long run?
