I would suggest looking into a registered nurse program offered at a community college in your area. These type of programs take two years to complete and are less expensive than four-years nursing programs offered by private schools or universities. You may also look into licensed vocational or practical nursing programs, which take less than two years to complete. If you decide to choose a registered nurse program keep in mind that you need to take pre-requisite courses as soon as possible and apply early. I would contact a program coordinator or counselor at a community college to discuss your options.
