Basically, I'm lost and need a little help/guidance. I have been a LVN for 6 years. I am desperately seeking to go back to school but cannot afford west coast. I'm in the process of finishing up all my Science pre req's as mine are all past 5 years. My job really needs me to get my RN to fill a upper management position that will be available shortly, and I want to further my education too. Currently it feels like its just about impossible to do that though. Santa Ana is a 5 year wait lost, saddleback is 4, cypress about 3-4, GoldenWest even longer. West coast is 100k bucks and I wouldn't be able to keep my job as well due to the class times.. My kids are in CA and I don't plan on leaving so even a 30 unit option would work for me, but I can't find one. I don't really know what to do at this point. Are there any programs in OC,IE,LA that are not insanely priced and are available in a less than a year waiting list. If I didn't have kids I would just go to school out of state for a year but I can't do that... Any advice?
