Hello darlings!!!!!! I am in dire need of help please. I want to enroll in a nursing program but I have a few questions.

1. I am considering Sanford Brown, Everest, or Texas School of Business....which school is the better choice? Are there any suggestions?

2. Should I go into Medical Assistant or PCT if I want to work with nurses and doctors hands on?

3. What are the pay differences between MA and PCT?

Thank you so much!!!!

To answer your questions:

1. Enroll in a school that is accredited for nursing by the CCNE or the ACEN; google these terms and start looking at colleges and universities in your area.

2. Being an MA is not under the nursing model; if you desire becoming a nurse, you can become a CNA to get familiar with some aspects of nursing care.

3. I haven't been a PCT in about 9 years, so I don't know if salary has changed; it will also depend on the area that you live in.

Best wishes.

Those are all commercial schools - very high cost. Everest has the highest number of lawsuits (alleging everything from false advertising to outright fraud) of any commercial educational vendor. Don't let anyone lock you into a loan package - you will be stuck even if you are unable to complete the program, unable to pass certification test or unable to get a job.

check out the state schools. They generally have online courses. Univ. of Texas and Texas Tech each have excellent program, and I feel sure others are just as competitive. Prices are cheaper for Texas residents.
