I graduated with my BA from the UW this past December. I'm currently working a full-time job at a start up in Sales. I'm 21 right now - if I would have not gotten a job offer I wanted to do Nursing and even before, when deciding for a major I really did want to do Nursing, however, getting into UW's program seemed close to impossible and I was told to consider Law school by those close to me.
I want to get my CNA license and start a CNA class this March/Spring quarter. I'm not sure if I should quit my current job ($12/hour) but I thought I could talk to my employer and see that if I do a CNA class and work part-time afterwards as a CNA and in Sales. Not sure if this can be accomplished but I just want to see whether I really love Nursing before getting rid of my other job.
Is there a school in Seattle close to the U-district that has a good program that also isn't full-time? Or if it is ... I guess I'll have to decide now.
Please let me know if you have any advice/experience! I was looking to work as a CNA - and work at my current job and if I would love working as a CNA I would go ahead and pursue a BSN through UW or WSU or work my way up to LPN and RN-BSN.
