I am a 25 year old college graduate living in Pittsburgh that has decided to go into the nursing field. I currently make pretty good money as does my husband. However, I do not believe that we would be able to financially handle me going back to school full time for two years to get an RN. But I believe that if I save up we will be ok if I go to school full time for an LPN. Then, I figured while I work I could go back to school on weekends/Adult Education to get my RN.
Has anyone out there tried this? Any ideas/advice? Do you think I would be better off in the long run just sticking it out and getting my RN in one fail swoop?
If you know what the major differences are between LPN and RN in our area I'd be interested in that too.
Also, if anyone has any comments on LPN and RN schools
in the Pittsburgh area I would like to hear what you think.
