I recently received my acceptance letter for the waiting list for a RN program I applied to. However, I was accepted to a LPN program at another school further away. Should I accept that LPN slot and complete the program or take my chances with RN program in hopes of getting in soon? I need some wise advice. I've heard many nurses say that a LPN license is a waste of time and a mistake for many nurses (vs straight to RN). With the current economy, I must do something to have other jobs options. Any input is greatly appreciated!
