    You may be happier at the nursing student forum....this is the Pre-nursing student forum and we are pretty much still working on our prerequisites and are trying to get into nursing school.
    But anyhow

    KUDOS TO U FOR CHOOSING NURSING AS A CAREER!
  11. by   angelfaceLPN
    Welcome,
    I am new here as well and also an LPN student. I will graduate in May 2008 and I can hardly wait! I find so many people (not here) are so anti-LPN for some reason. I think my favorite was during a clinical training at a hospital where we crossed with the ADN students, one of them was told to give a bed bath and she actually said, "UM, hang on, let me go get an LPN to do that". The instructor told her that if she really did that she would be in some serious trouble. I think the whole animosity thing between the two programs is ridiculous. I don't feel like I will be less of a nurse just because of the letters that will follow my name. If everyone would just focus on providing the best patient care possible, they wouldn't have time for this stupidity.

    I guess I take for granted that my school's nursing program does not differentiate between the LPNs and the ADNs...we take the same classes, go to the same clinicals, etc. After the spring semester our LPNs can exit or chose to move ahead with the ADNs...

    The way I see it - we're all professionals, and we're part of a team. The LPN students in my class are responsible for knowing the same information I am.

    I wish our school would do that. I wanted to be in the ADN program, but the waiting list was insane so I went into the LPN, and thats good enough for me right now. I talk to some of the ADN students and they do say that we mostly have the same stuff in our classes. Just they act like we are inferior to them for some reason. Then if I want to transition to the ADN program I have to work as an LPN for 1000 hours before I can do the bridge program. Likely I will just go on to get my BSN and skip the middle step so it does not really matter.
