Okay so I have been trying to get pre reqs done for my RN for the last 3 years now. I had a daughter in the middle of it so it kinda put a hold on things. I have been an STNA (CNA) for 3 years now. Currently I am working full time at a home health agency that is paying me decent money and I make my own hours, I have a 4 year old and a 1 1/2 year old, and I live with my boyfriend who doesn't do any housework so that is all me. I switched from a 4 year school to a 2 year school after I had my youngest daughter because it was cheaper and had a better RN program. At the end of this year (end of fall semester) I will have all of my pre requisties finished for my RN, but here is the catch. There is a two year wait to get into the program. At first I thought no big deal because I will be eligable for the waitlist at the end of summer. I figured starting Spring of 2014 I could take my pre reqs for my BSN. Then I realized I have a whole year of NOTHING to do. So my question for you is should I take that year and get my LPN so that I can get some nursing experience under my belt and on my resume. I thought about getting into another nursing program
but this one is the best around here, and it is so cheap that my grant covers all of my expenses. Any advice?
