Well, I sympathize with the OP because I am in a similiar perdicament. In my area jobs are hard to come by so I choose nursing because of the interest and availability of jobs in my local area. I was in a nursing program but was unprepared for the clinical skills so I failed out of the first semester. The only other choices in my area are expensive private ADN programs that charge 25-45K for a degree. Many of the schools know this area is economically depressed, and that nursing pay liveable wadges in my area, so they charge high amounts of tuition.
My recommendation to the OP is to only relocate if its a public schools offering a BSN or ADN/BSN combination. Otherwise its not really worth it.
Also to the various people I see posting that there are other areas which pay as well as a ADN/BSN are sadly mistaken. If you live in a right to work state your job choices are severly limited. Health-care is the only stable industry in my area. Plus compare how much the first year of Bachelor Degree earnings to nursing. You will be surprised that nursing outranks most with the exception of engineering or maybe a few IT specialities. Plus any advanced school requires a Bachelors and GRE scores. Getting a BSN allows many to transition to a professional school.
To the OP what other choices do you have?
