I have been working as an LPN for almost 6 years. I just graduated from an ADN program. I intend to keep my LPN license active. Does anyone know if I am supposed to retire my LPN school pin or do I wear both school pins?

I've been a CCRN off and on since 1977. (I'd had kids and couldn't get all my hours in back then). I didn't know they'd reduced the clinical hours so much! The last I'd read was one needed around 750 hours/year; and that was a far cry from back in the '70's.
I have always felt that I was held to a higher level of standards because of the CCRN; but maybe that is just my expectation.
As far as school pins, RNConnie, wear them both with pride if you wish to. I agree with a previous poster, though, you will be held to the RN standards of care; and it would not be necessary to pay to maintain your LPN license.
