  1. Hi am researching different branches and planning to reach out to a recruiter soon Interested in enlisting and hopefully if I can obtain the AVASB/Job availability do a career on the medical side Been gung-ho about the Navy but after some internet searching not 100% So I am planning to join with family and 1 child at the moment. Now I know it's not all about the advancement but finances are important when you have a family. I hear HM has a low advancement rate. I hear a lot of people mention go AF as it's training is the best for transitioning to civilian life. Now I also read that AF jobs in medical field about 14,000 are being cut. Looking at the AF website it seems to not be as descriptive as other branches sites. I don't know too much about 68W. Have a friend who is a psych tech, current job I am in, who's made a career in the Army doing this job. Any feedback or sage advice can offer up? Appreciate it and many thanks!
  2. Hi my Wife and I are considering a move to NC Big reason is lower rental cost, ample LPN jobs, and lower higher education cost for in & out of State tuition Have a ? pertaining to pre reqs We tried scouring through a few of the local Tech/CC programs to see if there is a time frame on pre reqs Up where we live in CT it's 5 years but know some States have a 10 year shelf life on pre reqs Thanks a bunch for the info or just pointing us in the right direction!!!
  3. Only 2 or 3 BSN programs in the State. My Wife and I are goal is for us both to get our RN. My Wife looking to do the LPN to RN or advanced placement in a ADN/ASN program. Me to just be accepted into an RN program.
  4. My Wife and I know someone who did that. Couldn't get into a program moved to Florida and came back worked as a Nurse up North. A lot of the nurses at the hospital I work at are just moving to Florida for lower COL. As long as the pay is between $20 to $24 an hour that isn't too terrible. Able to find a 3 to 4 bedroom 2 bath $250,000 or less we would be okay with that. Bit on the fence of moving to Florida. Receive the full on smack of hurricanes. Texas full on smack of tornadoes. IDK. We are looking at 5 States to move to: Virginia (Charlottesville/Richmond/Virginia Beach); North Carolina (Charlotte/Apex/Durham/Wilmington); South Carolina (Conway/Greenville/Columbia); Georgia (Augusta); Florida (Orlando/Tampa/Gainesville). Then rent and go from there.
  5. My Wife, an LPN, and I are planning a move South. Where not 100% sure. It is too competitive, costly, and the programs are not flexible up North for working student's. The plan is we are moving South. Since we work in the healthcare field finding work won't be too much of a challenge. My question is are there any programs in SC that are point based not lottery based and are a public university or college? Appreciate the feedback! Thanks!

  7. My Wife and I have decided next year we are going to leave our home state of CT and move South. Big reason is lower COL, lower taxes, more jobs, and more amenities for our growing family. Also warmer weather! There also seems to be abundance of nursing schools in the South. Many are inexpensive once you receive in State tuition. Many seem to be flexible for working student's. 2 questions: Anyone move out of State to become a Nurse and were you successful? Any recommendations on areas in the South to check out for Nursing school? Appreciate the insight and feedback can give! Have a great day!

    Decision: ADN or BSN

    Lol no I already taken the prerequisite of Micro believe I got a B+ thin it is 2 years since I have taken it.

    Decision: ADN or BSN

    Hi, I know this question must be played out! Quick synopsis tried to go for nursing school few years back little succes. Promised the wife 4 years if no luck let's start a family. So we are on the road to having a family with a little one being born in October. Right now my game plan is to clean my debt up and build my savings. My wife supports me trying again to get accepted into a nursing program. I am planning not this Fall but next Fall to restart prerequisites and take 1 a Semester. Then that leads to my initial initial question regarding ADN or BSN. The BSN has different prerequisites than the ADN program. So the ADN program also is a lot more flexible for working families. You take 1 nursing class/clinical a semester compared to 2 or 3 for the BSN program. I plan on taking a pay cut prior to starting nursing school by finding work closer to home and preferably look into finding a 12 hour night shift. So being a nurse quicker does seem like the best opition. We have about 6 or 8 nursing homes near by where we live and 6 to 8 hospitals in a 30 mile radius. So that you have to add in to the equation. Just hoping I can avoid microbiolgy again! Appreciate the feedback.

    Straight A students..

    Not wanting to be a downer Look into your school requirements. AP1 GPA for the 4 programs I applied to carried a 50% weight overall when it came to acceptance. I received a B- in the class one of the reasons I feel I couldn't get accepted into a program. So an A in AP can go far. Definitely take it alone and research Professors.

    Class can make or break you depending on the Professor. Had a great Professod for Chem and received my highest grade in Chem out of all the Sciences. Don't try to take Science classes together. Take it with a fluffy class. AP2 received a C+ in after taking it with Micro.
  12. Hi, so applied to about 5 different programs over 5 years and have not been accepted into an RN program. Not giving up but taking a year off to replan how to get in and focus on our newborn coming in October. Right now my work schedule would make it a challenge to jump into an RN program. Now if I could find a full time night gig in the ER, or my current job field of psych, or as an EMT next Spring might be able to consider going for my RN degree first. However, if I am not able to within 18 months considering going for my Medic or LPN license. Both programs are part time. The Medic program takes 12 months and cost $10,000. LPN program is 22 months and cost $30,000 total. The plus with the LPN program is you can avoid taking most of your science prerequisites outside of Micro and you can skip a year of the RN program for the Associates Degree. Any thoughts or feedback? Anyone a Medic or LPN going for their RN degree now?

    Hey how goes it? Quick question are these programs flexible with obtaining a nursing and offer students the opition of completing your RN part time?
  14. Hi curious if CT has any RN program like this? I searched but couldn't find any.

    LPN Programs in CT?

    If the 60% holds true with a $4K reimbursement from work per year. The program would cost me around $8K and around $15K to $20K in Federal aid to owe back. Thanks for the response!
