    Why don't you proceed on with the RN program and she goes with LPN. When you're done with RN and it comes time for her to bridge over to RN, you will still end up helping her. No sense in both of you getting tied up for 2 years together. And besides she'll have a jump start on the program by learning from you -- and may not have to buy books all over again for her upcoming RN program.

    On the other, it seems sort of like a waste for me to stop short, esepecially with the school only accepting 4 LPN's to bridge. I'm afraid that if we both start the LPN programs, thats what we'll stay for the rest of our lives.
    Is she really upset that you got in and she didnt...does she have some sort of inferiorty complex about it? That is the only reason I can see why someone would want to hold another back! Encourage her along the way, but don't sell yourself short. I wouldn't count on both of you being accepted into the bridge program together...then what would you do? Go back for 2 more yrs to become an RN? That just doesn't make logical sense- to me at least.

    Definately enter the RN prgm, and don't think twice about it. I'd be very concerned if your wife gives you problems about it. It's your future you're talking about.

    Also consider the fact that if you both try to bridge to RN, you will actually be competing with her for the spots. :stone

She had applied for the RN, but didn't make it. I don't know if I should attend the LPN with her so we can attend together and help each other study/push each other through, or if I should do the RN. Any advice????
    wow, what a dilemma. personally, i would start the rn program & encourage her to strengthen her own application for next year.

    Just wondering how things are going, if you started school, and what you decided. Good luck
