Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I am 54 years of age, have two boys ages 5 and 8 (adopted) and a single parent. I just completed my CNA training in October and sat for the State Exam on 10/31/06 and passed it. I have completed my Health Provider CPR training and am getting ready to start school in January 2007. Have a tough time trying to decide between LPN and RN programming. I have always wanted to be a nurse, having a lot of hands on experience with family members. If I go the LPN route, I can probably complete the program the end of the fall of 2008. If I go the RN route, I will not complete that program until the spring of 2010 (that is if I can even get into the Fall of 2008 program which would be the next available class for me after completing my pre-reqs. I am considering my age in all of the this, if I were younger, I know exactly what I would do.
Any suggestions in this matter would be greatly appreciated
Hope everyone has a great day!
