I have had a very hard time trying to decide what I would like to do.
Im a nontraditional 2nd degree student attending an ADN program in Louisiana. I graduate in May 2013 and plan to enter into a RN-BSN program after taking NCLEX.
Im hopeful to get a job with NICU right away so that I can start getting my experience so that I can apply for NNP school before I'm too old. Ill be 29 when I graduate with ADN. I have a BA in Sociology as well(5 yrs as a social worker).
Anyways, if you are in NNP can you tell me some of what you do and if you like it? How's the market for NNP? I would like to leave Louisiana(I'd really like to leave after getting my BSN and a year plus experience, but I am thinking it will be better for me to enjoy Louisiana's low cost of living and semi low tuition rates(compared with the rest of the country) so that I can obtain my NNP and then later move..
Any advice for me? (PS I also have 4 children who right now are 9.5, almost 8, almost 6, and almost 3) so once I do get to NNP school, they will be at least 3 years older...
