I need some advice. I am currently teach and I am starting prereqs for nursing school next month and applying to nursing schools next year. The nursing programs that I am applying to are daytime programs so I would have to quit teaching (which is fine for me!). My dilemma now is that my husband and I split the cost on bills. I know I would be taking a huge pay cut going from teaching to CNA. In what setting do CNAs earn the most? What setting would you recommend? I am going to apply for financial aid but I am not sure how much I will get (2nd degree for me). Plus, I have a 1 year old son so I have make sure his needs are met.
