I went straight for my BSN and have never regretted it. That being said, there are factors you should consider.
Do you only want to be a nurse working with wounds or do you still think you would be interested in working as a nurse in another area?
Either way, you should do some research on the demand for WOC nurses in your area or areas you would consider living in/moving to. I know where I am from the demand isn't high for WOC nurses (it's a specialty I am also interested in) and many jobs require you attend a WOC nurse program or have obtained related certifications.
If you don't want to be a nurse in other areas, then in my personal opinion I would say look at other career opportunities before applying to nursing programs
. Nursing is a tough career and nursing school isn't a cake walk. Each program is different but for me it wasn't easy coordinating class, clinical, homework/studying, and working. It's totally doable, it was just really overwhelming and stressful at times. I don't regret it now, but I definitely had moments during nursing school when I felt like I wished I had picked a major with less exams and no care plans
I didn't work very much during nursing school, and if having time to work is something you are concerned about I would suggest contacting the school/program(s) you are interested and asking for a sample of the class/clinical schedule for the nursing program(s). This will help give you a better idea of how much time you will be spending at school/clinical and how much time you have left over for studying, homework, work, and all the other little things in life. If you have a way to reach current students in the program I would suggest that too, they can give feedback and information that you wouldn't get from a school rep. Some semesters for me were easier than others and required less time outside of class therefore leaving more time to work, and some semesters really took a lot of extra time and effort. Be prepared to make sacrifices (which I'm sure you already know). I don't know your current living situation but if you don't already have roommates you could consider moving in with a classmate from your program, that way you can carpool together, go to clinical together, and you have a live-in study buddy who understands the struggles of nursing school.
In terms of which route to go (LPN vs. ADN), if you haven't already, I would look into if hospitals/clinics/etc in your area are hiring for LPNs before deciding between the programs. I would also consider cost and time spent in school. My local technical college had both LPN and RN programs but the RN program required you have your LPN first. The time it would have taken to complete the general education requirements and both the LPN & RN program would have only been a semester short of completely my BSN at the state university I attended, so that was the deciding factor for me.
I also considered if going the LPN to RN route would be better because I could work as an LPN during the RN program and then continue working as an RN while getting my BSN but decided against it due to minimal places hiring for LPNs and ADNs where I lived and after talking to LPN students who graduated from the program who said they were having a difficult time finding jobs.
There are a lot of factors to consider but I think its also important to note that there probably isn't a "right answer." I had friends from school who ended up attending different programs, some LPN, some ADN, some BSN, and we all had things to complain about. No program or route is perfect. Explore and consider all of your options and make the decision you think will fit your situation and future goals best.
Best of luck to you in your future!
