I'm at a crossroad. I just received my Bachelors Degree in Health Science. My overall goal is to become a Public Health Nurse. I have a five year old and work fulltime for the gov't(LA County). I live with a roommate and do not have the luxury of moving back home. So I have a couple of ideas: 1.) apply to an accelerated BSN program(12-15months)or Entry Level Master Nursing Program, take a leave of absence from work or resign, and for financial concerns, do savings, borrow from retirement and loans; or 2.)apply to Master's of Public Health Program and then consider nursing school afterwards. My biggest concern is having a stable income for my child. By the way, I did the nursing program ten years ago but dropped the very last semester of the program because of family issues.
