internet classes

  1. i was wondering the degrees online help. From what I'm reading, you must be an LPN befor you can become an RN? (excuse my lack of information)

    and while i'm waiting to start school, should i start learning about Anatomy, and maybe any other things i could find on the net. and I have heard somthing about there being a lot of terminology to be learned, any one know a web site( if any) where i can start learning.

    Any help will be much apretiated.

    You can be an LPN then go on to get your RN or BSN or just start out in a BSN program. As for anatomy, that will probably be one of your required degree courses. Have you contacted the college to see what they recommend?

    Our Pre-Nursing Student forum has some stickey's at the top that may be of some help. I'm sure there's websites within those stickey's. http://allnurses.com/forums/f198/

    However, you'll learn everything you need in school. I did no advance prep and just took things as they came and I did fine.

    Good luck!

    You do not have to be an LPN before becoming an RN. However, most of the internet programs for getting your RN require an LPN first and are LPN to RN programs.

    Are there any LPN programs online?

    I don't know. I have heard one member here talk about a program she was in that she arranged her own clinicals. Because of the clinical component where you need a live person with you, with a license that takes responsiblity for you, beginning LPN or RN programs online are few and far between.

    Thanks...I've noticed that they're hard to find.

    BTW, thanks for responding to my first post on the forum(s).
