I am an experienced CNA/MA (17yrs) trying to break into ER tech role. Previous company wouldn’t pay for phlebotomy class, and when I took a position with a company that would train me, there was so much drama and b.s.
I was out of there so fast because of the toxic environment. Should I just forget it and do my best to finish my RN?

I'd continue where you are but it doesn't hurt to look elsewhere and see if there's a better option that would offer better working environment while also sponsoring you. How long until you get your certificate?

Definitely pursue the RN!

Unfortunately the drama and BS doesn't stop at RN. But I would encourage you to complete it. You have a lot of clinical experience already and the considerable bump in pay (and status) is worth the cost in time, money, and stress from school.

Where are you at in the nursing program? Definitely continue to pursue that, it will pay off.

Pursue an RN license or parametric.

I would personally finish it out because in the long run, it'll mean better career prospects

I definitely think you should pursue it. I think you have already made a tiny step closer so it would be best to just continue and finish what you started. Hope everything goes well, OP!

Left executive role in industry to follow a dream and open a new company. It didn’t go quite as well as planned. Fast forward three years and I joined a large consulting firm as a way back in. It’s painful. I’m in a “leadership” role, but consider myself a worker bee. Even though opening my own thing was the best thing I’ve ever done in terms “knowing what I want”, it’s not valued in industry. The Q is will consulting get better or should I take a lower level industry job (VP) and call it a day?
