So I’m taking the plunge. I applied to go back to school to be an LVN/LPN(that’s the level below a Registered Nurse).
The plan is to end up an RN eventually, but the LVN program is only a year long, and I will have a job within hours of passing my licensing test. I can work for year or so and save up the money to go back for my RN.
I’m looking at being a traveling nurse. I can take 3-6 month assignments pretty much anywhere I want in the US.
Texas would be my home base. I could come back to see my family every 6-8 weeks for a long weekend. Take several weeks or even a month home between contracts.
The thing I like the most? The contracts cover rent & utilities. In some areas it also covers a car. All I would need would be my cell phone & internet. I could save a LOT of money quickly.
Now to take the screening test and be accepted! Deadline is March 1st!
