I am contemplating becoming an RN, but I do not have a job in the field at this time so I was contemplating getting certified as an LPN, CNA, or phlebotomist. The last 2 options listed are more attractive to me because I can get certified in a few months vs. LPN which will take 16 months.
I was initially studying to become a vet tech but the program was not a good fit for me. However, I realized that I did enjoy what the health professions have to offer in terms of learning opportunities.
I think I'm better off starting with one of those 3, however, so I can get more experience working with people and get out in the workforce. If I still want to be an RN, I can take the pre-reqs while I work. No biggie for me.
Any advice you all can give me would be very helpful. Thank you.
