Yes, a coding course would cost more (the state has a grant program I'm looking into)

My research also reveals that while the field is expected to explode as the population ages, it features long hours, physical/emotional stress, rock-bottom pay, and sky-high turnover. I hope I'm not sounding snobbish: I know that a health attendant certification can be a stepping stone to a nursing career; and if I had no other qualifications, I wouldn't hesitate to accept the fact that it would be better than nothing. I just see taking the course as a waste of the marketable skills and experience that I do have, everyone's time, and the county's money.
