hi everyone. its me again. I have so many questions because I'm trying to figure a lot out. Okay so here is my story to those who don't know. I'm currently a college student in a major I do not like. I cannot just switch over to bsn program at another university because my grades are not high enough. fine. So I decided the only way at this point I can start working towards my bsn in nursing is to start in a lpn program. I found a lot of lpn programs that are accredited by the state and by the national nursing. They will also I'm sure lead me to be able to do rn. After that I'm sure I can find a program that will be rn to bsn. Anyways the point is I'm going to applying to this one lpn program and my dad saw.... I wrote it on a sheet of paper. He startes telling me its for people with g.e.d's and how basically they are a bunch of bs. I really dont know where to turn at this point. I checked the cc and they have a huge waiting list and I checked other places and they only offer rn to bsn. I dont know what to do at this point. He really discouraged me. I'm already discouraged being that I spent the last 3 years of college doing something I didn't want to do. I'm ready to do this once and for all and I cant help but feel like maybe I should give up again.
So my question is to those who went from just starting a lpn program to getting your bsn how was it? what did you do? how long did it take? was it hard? what should I be looking at in the lpn programs etc? basically I'd love to hear your success story and how I should go about this.
