I need advice please! I am 43 and trying to restart my life and career path after 12 years of being a stay-at-home Mom. I will be an old student. I have many questions. I attended college over 20 years ago but never really applied myself. I did not finish and just went a couple years. I have started attending a local community college (Tidewater Community College) and have really enjoyed it. So far I have made all A's but it hasn't come easily. I still have BIO, and A&P I and II and was told I couldn't attend the nursing program until Sep. 2010 because of these classes. I am old and need to hurry this. I looked into Sentara and it is the same time frame. I have checked into Medical Careers Institute and was told I cold start very quickly. Can anyone tell me about their RN and LPN programs? Any advice on which to take and salaries of these positions. I know they are costly, but feel this is what I really want to do. I have 3 kids and want to hurry this along. Please someone tell me about Medical Careers Institute and these programs. Thank you.
