Here's my question:
Would you go the LPN route if you feel the RN program is too hard for someone without a med background? Perhaps work as a LPN for 6 months then go through the mobility program.
Which option should I choose:
1) Go for LPN Fall 2009, work as LPN
then take microbiology and *math 100 prior to the RN mobility, Fall 2010
*per the state, all RN applicants will need Math 100 effective Fall 2010 (I hate math!!!)
3) Go for RN Fall 2009 (have A in math 116; Math 100 not required at this time) take Microbiology this summer
then apply for Fall 2009 RN class OR
4) Take microbiology this summer, take a "Patient Care Assistant/CNA" 1 semester class Fall 2009, work as CNA
then apply for RN Spring or Summer, 2010 and bypass the LPN/mobility route and Math 100 requirement entirely.
..I don't want to flunk out of the RN program....heard LPN is much easier....would working as LPN or CNA help with RN clinicals... THE ONLY REASON I AM CONSIDERING THE MOBILITY LPN ROUTE IS THE FEAR OF FLUNKING CLINICALS!!
I need some advice from those wiser than me!!
