So, I've just been accepted into a Pharmacy Technology program. I will be done in a year and I hope to find a decent paying job and be on my way to nursing school. I chose Pharmacy Tech first because I have 3 kids and I've been a stay at home mom for 5 years. I'm ready to help my husband in supporting our family and a Pharmacy Tech job will enable me to do so while I'm pursuing my nursing degree. Has anyone else went from CPhT to RN? Will this help me get into a nursing program? My plan is to become an RN, then BSN, and hopefully MSN. I've also been doing a lot of research on CRNAs and though it sounds like something I would enjoy, I'm worried I will miss out on my children because it sounds very demanding. Any advice from CRNAs would be greatly appreciated. What kind of hours do you work? What are some pros/cons in that career? How long were you in school?
