Everyone I talk to says "NO NO NO just go right for the RN, Lpns dont make any money and You will work no where but a nursing home" but its not that easy!!! Any advice will be helpful thanks!!
First, everyone giving you advice is not paying your bills! Stop listening to people who are not providing for you and your child, but he/she feels the need to give you his/her opinion that may harm you two financially!!!
Secondly, I do not see anything wrong with your plan. If I were rich, I would go through an Accelerated BSN program. Since I am not rich, I am going through a regular ADN program.
A year ago I started taking the classes I needed and recently was accepted. However, during the 5 years prior to my RN journey I worked full-time to get out of debt and save money so I could afford to work part-time and to pay cash to attend this program.
While I worked, I heard similar advice. People told me I was very smart so I should quit my job and go back to school to become a Nurse. I was also told to find loans, which would put my family into further debt, and follow my dreams. However, none were willing to pay for my schooling or living expenses!!! So, I ignored them.
Listen to your gut and do what is best for you and your family. Good luck.
