Hi, I'm 33 years old and a SAHM...I was thinking about going to school to be a lpn or rn.I just wanted a little advise about the field.
1. 2 or 4 year program?...also how hard is it?
2. what to expect the first year or so working in a hospital etc...
3. What are your duties? just name some everyday things you have to do.I'm not good with alot of blood and gore so I could not be a ER Nurse...Would I be good as a "regular" nurse?
4.I was also thinking labor and delivery...I know theres blood..lol but I think I would be good with that...How much extra training for a specialty?
Any advise I will take...I'm just in the begining stages of thinking about this and just want to be sure it's the right desicion..or if I should maybe be a xray tech etc..or stick with a desk job in the medical field..lol
I appreciate any constructive advise...this is a big step for me and I'm nervous!!

I went to a 4 year University right of HS, obtained my BSN at age 21 and have been working as an Nicu nurse for the last 30 years. Nursing is so flexible and offers so many types of employment that there is something that interests everyone. I've always worked in CA, where the salaries are very competitive- great career move.
