I am currently in the first year of a two year 1-1 program. Basically the way my program works is that we do LPN the first year while simultaneously taking the pre-reqs for the RN. We graduate in December and then come back in Sept for the RN year.
I already have a B.A and I was thinking about jumping ship after the first year in order to get my BSN from an accelerated program. The reason I didn't try for the accelerated program in the first place is because I didn't have all my pre-reqs completed and it would have taken the same amount of time to do the pre-reqs as it is taking me to get my LPN. I figure at the very least I can work pier diem as an LPN while I am completing my RN. Anyhow I am looking at a school that is about 1 hour and 15 minutes away by car. I am sure with traffic being what it is in my area that it could be 90 minutes easy.
How far do you commute to school? If you do commute a long distance what toll does this take on you? Do you have the energy to do what needs to be done?
