I will be going full time. I just want to go on and get it over with!! Hubby is behind me 100%, but in all honesty I admit that $$$ I am a little worried. I'm so used to working and my not doing so, is certainly going to take some adjusting on my part, plus our budget will be tight and I also have to factor the extra $$ I'll be spending in gas to and from school etc..
so much to worry about..
I "may" work a little here and there , meaning perhaps 4 to 8 times per month, or if I could swing it, I may work say every Friday & Sat ( 8 hours each doing private duty) but again all thats a big "IF", cause I expect the program to be hard and time consuming.
Going PT sounds great especially when also working FT. Since I have to commute an hour+ each way, coming home in the late evenings was a concern...CONGRATS!! to YOU for starting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, the school is $$$, but the flip side is having to wait 2, 3, years or more to get into a traditional PN program. I did some "Asking" and one of the LPN's here in my town shared with me that she is making $18.00 per hour ( W/one year experience...LTC) I'm currently making $10.00-$12.00 per hour doing private duty ( agency) however there is not really any job stability...and NO benefits..
Have they told you where you will be doing your clinicals? Are the instructors nice? ( PM me if ya have to..
) Also when will you begin your clinicals?, what subject are you studying first?, How many in your class?, What about books?, Any students having a long distance ( like me)? You said that some of the students already have advance degrees..Wow..., whats the average age of students?, how about the oldest?
Sorry that i am full of questions, LOL Just that I am so very excited for the both of us!!
