I have my BA and MA in anthropology, and I focused on forensic anthropology for my MA. I also have a lot of experience in disaster recovery and relief. I have met a lot of great nurses while working different jobs and volunteering with the Red Cross. Now, after working as a teacher for a few years and doing forensics (very part-time) on the side, I realized that I really want to be in a hands-on field with more real-world job opportunities. The nurses I have met are so inspiring that I am thinking very seriously about going back to school, and I want to make the right move.
Long story short, my question is:
For those of you who had different graduate degrees before
entering nursing school
, what path did you take to become a nurse? Did you become an LPN first, or did you transfer core credits over into an Associate's or Bachelor's program to become an RN?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
