Hello,I am new to this website and hope I don't sound redundant. I am 30 and thinking about a career change into nursing. My community has several hospital based nursing programs and one community college nursing program (all pretty highly regarded but only CC has full accredidation and part time study).My basic thinking is that I am going to take my pre reqs first, see if I can get through the science classes first and apply for nursing school. I am really interested in going to a school that has part time evening classes, so that limits me. I am too much of a wimp to give up my current career (however hard and underpaid it is) for a curriculum that may or may not be for me. I am single and do not have a support system to fully finance me during such a drastic change. Also, I'd like to do this to provide a more stable, sure way of support for myself, always be in demand for a job and then able to support my future family, etc. Is there a debate or school of though with part time study vs. full time study? Would I be a better nurse if I only go full time instead of part time? Just curious about other people's experiences. And if anyone else had concerns about giving up one career for another with quitting to study full time. Naturally, the CC has an extensive waiting list (as all of the nursing programs do locally) but I won't let that deter me. Thank you!
