I am currently taking all online classes at TCC. I have 23 credits so far if I want to transfer to a four year university. I am a CNA and I want to pursue my dream. Nursing is want I have always wanted to do. I was going to shoot for LPN because I need to get into the workforce fast. But alot of nurses are telling me that's a waste of time. My mom said I should go straight for RN because that's my ultimate goal. I have researched MCI, Centura, JSR, VCU, and Virginia State. I know MCI is 15 months, but I am hearing that LPN's are goinjg to be phased out. Help please! I would like to know if there is anyone who can help me? At Tcc I am taking classes geared towards the associate in science degree so I can transfer to a four university. I am not good in math and that scares me. Some nurses at my job have told me go for RN because once you finish LPN school you get comfortable and never go back. With the recession going on I want to finish school and obtain my degree. I am a single parent, and I have to work fulltime. Alot of people have told me it best to not work while in nurising school, but that's not an option for me.
