-the hospital/BF center I called said they only hire RN's internally
-the IBCLC I had called (she helped with DS) said business for her has been very slow and she hasn't worked for months
I don't even have a 4 yr college degree, or an associate's degree. Only a 2 yr computer technical degree.
Of all the jobs I'm considering, lactation consultant is very high on the list, but w/o getting an RN degree, it seems undo-able which is extremely disappointing. I do understand that technically you do not need to be an RN in order to be certified.
Anyone here an IBCLC w/o being an RN? And if so, how would i even get my 'hours' of training in in order to become certified?
Also, I have recently been diagnosed with ADHD/inattentive and i always had trouble in school with the tough science and math subjects. Would this make studying to become an IBCLC more difficult? I just don't know if I could hack it I nearly failed chemistry in H.S.
