With the shortfall in Nursing. It is very easy to get assistance to become a nurse once you are in as a CNA. For example: The VA, once you work a year for them, will pay for your education in Nursing if you contract with them for so many years after you finish.

I myself am a Respiratory Therapist. I make around 26 an hour with shift differential plus I get Special Incentive pay for any overtime which is another 10 on top of my total overtime pay.

Currently I am working on my Nursing degree compeletly online. Should have by the end of this year. Then I will work on my Nurse Practictioner which can ALSO be done online. NP guarantees me a six figure income and the ability to get out of the country (so does nursing) if the Sh*t hits the fan and the country goes Mad Max.
