Hello, I'm also elementary school nurse in Alabama! I am almost finished with my LPN to RN mobility program! I'll be finished in May... I also didn't want to leave my job, this is my second year as a school nurse. I was able to find a program for me at Snead State Community College. It is an online program, it lasts three semesters. I am able to schedule clinical hours and study around my work schedule. Considering the fact I'm one of the few that has decided to work full-time during the program, I am doing well and am beyond excited to finish here in a couple months. I encourage you to continue your education and look into programs in your area! I'm curious to know what suggestions you are looking for, I'll be glad to help!
