Happy New Year everyone.
I'm recently retired military and want to pursue a career change into the nursing field. I have been researching this field to determine where I would like to hang my hat. However, I'm undecided about the best route to take to accomplish my goals. Any administrators out there or HR managers who would be willing to advise on the best way to enter into this field. I've been informed it would be advisable to become a CNA and go up from there. Others say to enter as an LPN. My interest would be to become an RN eventually. However, my young age of 53 may limit my getting there. My people skills are excellent due to my years of experience in civilian and military. Being involved in Desert Storm and other conflicts there is not much that rattles me. I've seen much and stand firm in the toughest times.
Any suggestions. Enjoyed speaking and sharing thoughts. Thanks,
