I've been home sick for the past week and finally had the time to do some research into Nursing programs (how ironic.)
I graduated with a BS from a VA University in 2003 and have worked in a variety of fields related and unrelated to my degree ever since. My background is in Speech Pathology and Developmental Disabilities and I'm fairly certain my degree will meet all pre-reqs as we even had cadaver lab as part of our program.
I really want to get an RN--I don't care if it's an Associates or a BSN...I just want to be eligible to sit for NCLEX and pass.
However, I'm a single girl with a professional job with typical working hours in Virginia Beach. My boss would probably be pretty flexible with me if I needed to leave a little early for a class from time to time or things like that but I can't seem to find courses that are nights/weekends! Everything seems to be geared towards the traditional student.
I could take a job doing something random at night but then how would I afford school?
I didn't take out loans for my first degree and it doesn't seem reasonable to take them out this time around "just because" I want to do something different....
Does anyone know of any night/weekend/online schools in the area? I'd be willing to drive to Richmond if necessary, I don't want to have to move again if I can avoid it...
Any help is greatly appreciated.
