    struggling to finish school

    I need some information to assist me along my nursing path. I am 22 years old and I have a 6 year old and a 9 month old baby. I am currently attending a 4 year institution business school and I am transferring over to a community college in a few weeks to finish up my pre-reqs to be a nurse. I need ap 1, 2 and microbio to apply to the LPN program but I cant take all three classes at once. I receive financial aid and they wont pay for me to take one or two classes per semester I need at least 3-4 classes. I desparetely need to work so I was considering just taking the LPN program instead of trying to complete my RN since I am so close. Any advice? I really would like to be a RN.

    click here please!!

    Well I used to be a staffing manager for a healthcare agency that hired GNA'S on a contract basis and the GNA'S that worked for me actually enjoyed it. It gave them flexability and it paid them way more than if they actually worked for a facility. Th eonly thing is that most of them do notr offer benefits if thats what your looking for. They loved it and since I left that job to take a GNA class myself, ( I only did that because Im in school for nursing) I will be doing contracts when I finish. I hope this helps!

    seriously considering quitting my job--need suggestions

    I dont really recommend quitting your job without another one lined up. I have been in the administrative field (medical) for about 4 years and I really liked it. Maybe you should find a job in the hospital or in the medical field to support you. I quit my job to finish school fulltime but I have the help of my fiance and it is still difficult for me to pay my car payment. He pays everything else but I am responsible for my car. With that said, the point I am trying to make is that you will still need to at least work part time. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Terrified of drawing blood

    Thank you everybody. Sometimes we need that extra encouragement to push us. I love this site.

    Terrified of drawing blood

    I totally need some help. I am a pre-nursing student. I went to school for medical assisting 3 years ago and I passed the curriculum but I did a terrible job with drawing blood. I never used the clinical side to get a job I used the administrative side. I am now 3 classes away from applying to the RN program but I am afraid of drawing blood still. I can deal with blood and any other gross stuff, but I am afraid of actually sticking the needle in to far or missing the vein. Is there any hope?

    Can I do this if I really try?

    Wow, I feel the same way that you do. I am still taking pre-reqs but I do alot of research and read alot of this forums and I feel discouraged. I am 22 years old and I have an infant and a 6 year old but I am still averaging a B, in my classes. Sometimes after reading some of the nursing school stories, I feel like I might not make it through. I am so determined not to let these types of things get to me but is there really hope? Good luck to you, you can do it.
