First of all I would like to say that I am glad that I have found allnurses.com. I read the various posts everyday. I enjoy reading everyone's opinion and getting different insights from everyone on this BB. It is like I know you all just from reading your posts on a daily basis.
As some you know but for the ones that don't I will fill you in, For the past couple of weeks I have been debating on whether or not I should continue with my pre-requisites for the RN program or whether or not I should just go into the LPN program in January of 2002.(Mind you if I go the RN route I will be able to start my nursing classes August 2002;and graduate May 2004). I have pure-dee made my self sick trying to make the decision and I have to have my mind made up in 2 more weeks. I come to this BB getting the opinions of very qualified people such as the LPN, RN, BSN, MSN, and the nursing students themselves. Just getting feedback from what their experience has been in school and just working in the nursing field period. I have a question and I know that everyone here is very capable of answering this question:
If you had to do it over would you change the route that you took to get your nursing license?(Ex. LPN to RN, Straight RN, etc........)
I am just curious to see that knowing what you know now whether you are a RN, LPN, BSN etc.....Do you feel as if now that you have hindsight that you would have took a different path.
Also, I want to know the different routes that you all took to get your nursing degree. I appreciate you all and you all a wonderful group of people. Love you all and Thank God for you.
