Hey everyone. I'm new here. I am 21 years(male) old researching a career in the health care field. I've been mulling over many things such as a CNA, MA, RN, Surgical tech, Sterilization Tech, Patient care tech, Medication aide, you name it. Lately I've really been researching LVN and RN, seeing as they are in demand, not so much an LVN but still.
My problem is, i can't seem to find any schools for either. I would prefer a technical school and not a community college. I know HCC and SanJac teach LVN but i prefer a technical school. Anyone know of any? There is a technical school in San Antonio, for an LVN, which i figured was the closest.
I am also wondering is there are any technical schools for an RN or are they all true colleges? Seems like the research I've done was you either got an associates or bachelors in nursing to become an RN. Now when i say technical school i mean MedVance or something like Texas School of Business, a community college would be like San Jacinto College, Houston Community College or Wharton Community College and then a true college being Baylor School of Medicine.
I went to the West Houston Medical Center since it is so close and asked HR about nursing, its a shame they weren't more helpful. Ohwell. I'm glad i found this website/forum and hope to hear everyones opinions.
