So I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about putting a jump start on my slow return to school. I left college originally when FDNY called me for an EMT job which has since led to paramedic (on their dime) and hopefully a year from now firefighter. I have no desire nor reason to leave FDNY until retirement. That said I have roughly 30-40 liberal arts credits and I'd really like to slowly make my way down the line from RN to NP some day. (far away) What's the most realistic way of doing this while working full time? I don't know of any part time 4 year RN programs, but maybe start with LPN few classes here and there and work my way up? Would love to hear from anyone else in the same position.
