Good afternoon! I am so excited that I found this place. I am looking to get all kinds of great advice for changing my life. I am 38 years old and I am beginning a new journey. For the past 10 years, I have played around with the idea of becoming a nurse. Why so long? Well, I have 4 children and I won a very good income tax and bookkeeping business. I kept thinking my life was all set and I did not have time to devote to going to college. I homeschool all of my children and I have this business that is full-time but really only super busy during January to April months. However, I decided to make the leap and just go for it. I have a few questions since 1- I have never gone to college for a degree and 2-I am completely new to nursing.
What classes can I take that is a good balance of hard and easy? I want to try to take 3 a semester. I could do more in fall and Summer but Springtime is my busiest time of year and I can not handle that many hard classes. I want to go for my BSN and go from there. Any advice?
I also would like to know where to look for scholarships? I do not want to just go anywhere because of the line of work I am in, I am very much aware of identity theft issues. So I want to go where it is tried and true.
