I'm new to all of this and would like to find some advice and some information please. If anyone out there could help I would appreciate it greatly. Let me start by saying that I'm presently looking into taking a CNA course that should start this winter for several weeks two nights a week. I am willing to do this because of circumstances with the health of my wife. If I like the lifestyle enough I will consider taking a job in the field with the idea of getting a Nursing career going in the future.
A few questions....What is involved in going to a Nursing course part time for LPN. Will I need other courses first? What kind of costs are to be considered? And for other supplies, books etc? I have been self employed for the past 18 years or so and have no formal colledge education. In fact, I had to get a verification of my GED in order to get enrolled in CNA course.
I am 43 years old and contemplating a major career and life change. I have just quit smoking and will drop a little weight to take some of the stress off these poor old joints...he, he.
Does anyone out there think I'm crazy, or just nuts? Any help will be nice!!
