  1. Anyone else "only" going for LPN?
    I haven't really decided yet whether or not I would go past an LPN. I'm in my 30s and nursing would be a career change. I'm just doing things one step at a time. My immediate goals are to get my foot...

    I've noticed a few LPN to BSN programs in my state (Georgia), but there doesn't seem to be too much information out there about them from students. I'm wondering how they differ from traditional BSN...

    I couldn't find another thread like this, so I thought I'd start one. Who else is applying for an LPN/LVN program for the Spring 2015 semester? Hopefully we can support each other through this nerve...

  6. What do people think about 'older' students?
    Please don't apologize! :) I don't think it's a silly question. I'm in my mid 30s and also pursuing nursing as a second degree/career. I can't say that the thought hasn't crossed my mind about how...

  7. Hard Time Finding a Job (PCT/CNA)
    That makes sense! Is there any chance for using the Gwinnett Transit? I know it's super limited so it might not be an option. But keep at it! :) Good luck!

  8. Hard Time Finding a Job (PCT/CNA)
    You won't necessarily have to put a ton of miles on your car. I think it depends on the assignment. A lot of people I know in home health care have an assigned client that they work with regularly....

  10. HELP! Need advice & info about nursing schools in Atlanta!
    Hi Jasmin, have you considered applying to schools that offer ADNs? That would expand your options significantly. GPC, Atlanta Tech, Gwinnett Tech, West GA Tech, Lanier Tech (and pretty sure some...

    So far I have a 3.6 GPA. I'm finishing up my last pre-req right now and unless something horrible happens I'll have an A in that so I think that would bring my GPA up to a 3.67. I'm nervous about...

  22. Do some schools require only certain parts of the TEAS?
    Thanks! I graduated HS 15 years ago, so I can see how more recent grads would remember more of it. Although I'm not sure it would do me any good to have graduated more recently since my HS did not...

    Maybe this is a silly question, but have any of y'all encountered that some sections of the TEAS are not given by some schools or that the material was "dumbed down"? I ask because the school I'm...
