I am 27 with 3 small children. I can't decide on whether to go to school to be an RN or LPN. Is it worth the extra year in school to be an RN? I want be able to work as soon as possible, but my schooling and childcare would be paid for 100%, so part of me wants to take advantage of this and go for RN. The only thing I know is that I want to work with the elderly.(I love old people!)And I would like to only work weekends. What are the pros and cons to either becoming a RN or LPN?
