Hi, I am new to this site and thanks to Brian I finally got logged on. I am currently an LPN licensed in Washington State as well as Texas. I live in Washington. My question is, I want to further my education. I am currently employed at an Assisted Living Facility and absolutely love my job. I have gotten so much gratification working with my Residents and at this point in my life, I cannot feasibly quit work to return to school full-time to obtain my RN. Are there any programs such as home schooling, distance learning or correspondence classes that provide for any of the studies in an RN program? I know that I would have to do my clinical rotations but I would cross that bridge when I get there. The nursing schools in my area are very difficult to get accepted into due to federal funding or rather lack of, class sizes cut due to staff shortages, etc. and at my age of 45
I don't have that many years before I retire but I would still like to further my education. I hope someone can shed some light at the end of the tunnel for me. Thanks in advance.
