I've made the big decision to go back to school and follow my dream of becoming a nurse. In my position as a HR Manager I take care of people (my employees) but I really don't feel I am truly making a difference. I know as a Nurse I can make that difference.
I currently have a BA in Business Mgmt with a minor in Human Resources.
Just a couple of questions I hope some of you could help me with:
I've looked into a couple of programs but not sure what route to go, what has worked best for those out there in similar situations?
SCAN program ( seems like most if not all are full time)
ASN (go to commity college and take necessary classes to get into the Nursing school) I think I have to take Sciences and Math classes over since its been around 10 yrs (yikes!).
Accelerated BSN program? (not sure what this is)
What are my other options? Unfortunately, I have to continue working full time. However, I'm willing to go full time evenings and weekendds. Once I get started will go full force. I have full support from my husband and family.
My other concern is that once I become an RN will I have problems getting a job since I don't have medical experience? I have lots of Mgmt experience working with people (I hope thats a plus). I've always been on the other end (hiring).
Thanks so much, I look forward to your feedback.
