I know this is an old post, perhaps even broad and simplistic by some views, but I had a similar scare today. I am beginning an LPN program next week, having first obtained a BA in a different field of work several years ago. Making a change is always scary, and it's good having information up front, the good and the bad, to prevent surprise, shock, and awe later on.
Thanks again for all these views. The posts here are really helpful, even if you think no one is reading them, even posts several years old
