Online Paramedic To RN: John Earns His Associate’s Degree With Help From The College Network
“I have been a paramedic for about 7 years now. I like the paramedic role because I like taking care of people.
“About three years ago, I went online and discovered The College Network®. I looked into it and enrolled. It’s been really great for me. I recommend it for anyone who wants to apply themselves and accelerate through a program. I also recommend it to a person who wants to take their time and go at their own pace like I did. It took me 3 years to complete. I was able to do all my prerequisites, core classes and also take the CPNE.
“The College Network has a good EARN program where you refer people. I personally was able to refer 6 people and have my entire program paid for!
“The modules were very helpful when you go to take your tests. They really do provide you with condensed information, something that’s easy to read and that’s not overwhelming to study so that when you go to take your test you are prepared to pass.
“I have two kids; one that just turned two, and I also have a three month old. I was able to work full time, spend time with my two children, and go through the program and earn my RN at the same time.
“I chose to be an RN because I do like to take care of people, and I also wanted to make more money to provide for my family. By becoming an RN, I basically got about a 75% raise from being a paramedic. So if you are worried about the cost of the program, I’d find any way possible to do it because it’s going to be a great investment for you.”
