I'm about to enter a CC and possibly a LPN program. My eventual goal, however, is to be a RN. Does anyone have any advice as to whether or not to do the LPN program and then try to get into a RN bridge program somewhere, or should I just do my prereq's at a CC and then try to transfer over to UCA, UALR or even the program at Baptist? Any suggestions here would be appreciated. I am tempted to do the LPN program just so I can hurry up and get into learning what I'm there for (nursing), and I'm not sure what kind of chances I would have to getting into a 4yr school after I've taken all the prereq's at a CC. (I know that UCA gives preference to students who have been at their school from the beginning.. Pre-Nursing Students.) But, I can't just start out there, as I want to get started now and I've already enrolled at the CC where I live, not to mention it's much cheaper this way. Ugghhh!! I just don't know what would be the best route to take financially and emotionally.. I would be very upset if I made it through LPN school, but I couldn't get in to a RN program. Okay.. enough.. now... anybody got any suggestions?
