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?
