So I am at a job I truly hate, and have made the decision to go back to school to become a registered nurse. I have applied to CUNY schools, and am waiting for a response. I have been thinking it may make sense in the to become a CNA, then a patient care technician (which pays a bit more) so while I go to school (full time) I can work as one part time (I still need to make a living). It would also give me the opportunity to get a taste of this field as I currently work as a secretary. Does anyone have any feedback, suggestions on this path?
