I'm new to this site. I'm bascially looking for an evening RN program in NYC . As I've looked around, there seems to be very few that caters to students looking for part-time study. At present, I have an AAS Degree in Medical Office Assisting from Bronx Community College and a BS in Health Education Promotion from Lehman College. Now of course, I would love to attend Lehman's nursing program but they only offer day classes. Since I'm a single mother of (2) children 2 yrs old and 10 yr old, I need to work. Currently, I serve as the Clinical Admin. Asst. for Cardiothoracic Surgery but my fulfillment lies in being clinical, handling the care/medical management of the patients that I see. Despite my children and the need to work full-time, I believe with hard work and dedication - ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH GOD! So my projected date of entering a nursing program would be 2007. If anyone could be of assistance, I would greatly appreciate it.
**Note: A friend suggested that I become an LPN first then work my way up?
What are your thoughts about that statement? Would that be the wiser choice given my current situation?
