I HAVE ASPIRATIONS OF BEING A RN.i attended macon state college in the fall 07. it was too difficult therefore i left. i really wanted to go to gordon college so in the spring of 08 i was accepted. i registered for my classes and everything was all good until i went to financial aid. they told me pell paid tuition and fees, but i needed an extra $1200 for room and board, food, books, etc. i was so heartbroken because i thought i had everything planned out:cry:.im currently now in my second (summer) quarter at a local tech school for my CNA and LPN with a 3.38 gpa. one of my older friends (who is a rn) asked why am i wasting my time getting a lpn when i can easily get a rn.should i stay and finish my lpn (have a semester or 2 quarter until i enter the lpn program) or should i finish with my CNA and in the spring of 09 enroll at gordon college (i would take out a loan)?i have a semester to go until i enter nursing school.if anyone attended gordon or macon state college and gave me some input that would be helpful.
