I have applied to 2 RN programs for Fall 2013. So far, I have been rejected from one of the two. I am starting to think about going the LPN route if the 2nd school rejects me too. I already have all my science and math classes for the RN degree done, so all I really need now is the Nursing classes. BUT my predicament is that I have a big family and we all live off my husband's income, which hasn't increased in 4 years. I only have about $10,000 left of federal loans before I've reached my maximum because I have a 4 yr degree, which is pretty much useless in this economy. I am starting to panic about the future because I feel that my family is in a position where I really need to get out there and get to work, but on the other hand in the back of my mind I keep hearing myself say that doing an LPN program will be a waste of time and money for me, since I've come this far already. Any suggestions, advice please?!?!??
