Need help finding a school !! help !!

  1. Hey guys i post every now and again with a problem so most of you wont know me but i need help



    Ive been in school doing pre-req's for the community program here in california... I just came into some money and i need a private RN program.

    Backstory:

    Im 20 years old .. 21 in october with a child on the way !!YAY!!, Anyway i live in FRESNO california and the community program here takes forever to get into i geuss..

    What private non-online school's are an option around here.. i will drive an hour or two every day i dont care i just need to finish school so i can support my new family. Price doesn't matter....

    Id love to know of some private programs that have little or no wait list .. I dont mind doing an LVN program to be eligible for an RN program ( i know some require you to be a licensed LVN). Relocating is an otion but id love to avoid it.. If you attended the school your mentioning please let me know how you feel about it aswell !!


    THANKYOU ALL NURSES COMMUNITY!

    If you don't mind coming down to southern CA, there are a few new programs that I heard just opened up. Kaplan University in San Diego, I believe just opened a new BSN program. There is also National University in Los Angeles, that just started a new BSN program about a yr ago. American University of Health Science or Health Care in Long Beach has a ADN or BSN program, not sure. You should check the CA Board of Registered Nursing for other schools.

    I'd look at some programs for LVN, it'll at least get you foot in the door, often can only takes a year, and you can have some income when your new family arrives.

    These are the accredited schools in california: http://www.bvnpt.ca.gov/education/sc..._schools.shtml

    If you do decide to go the RN route, consider that you will be in school extensively longer after the baby comes and must be prepared to have a babysitter ready, because you will be in school a lot!

    Good luck with your new family!
