Thanks everyone for posting in here. It's helped me a lot. I'm still torn between starting as an LPN first or just going straight for my BSN. LilD
, you've been a big help! To top it off, a job I applied for a couple of months ago (non-healthcare related) has called me for an interview. I'm going to go but if they offer me the job I'll only consider it at the top pay. I don't want anything else to distract me from nursing as it seems something always comes up.
I'm trying to get info from AASU and Savannah Tech so I can start the summer semester but getting info is like pulling teeth. Someone is always "out of the office" or replies with generic info. I didn't have any trouble at all with AASU the first time around but now it seems I'm hitting a brick wall. Oh well, I have to keep trying.
The only reason I wanted to start out as LPN is to start working sooner but with the possibility of being wait-listed at Savannah Tech, I might just as well start the BSN at AASU. I'm so confused!! Hopefully I'll get the info I need and can start one or the other soon.
I know I got off topic, sorry. I'm not too worried about the difference in pay between an LPN and an RN, it's more the time to get either one that I'm considering. If going for the BSN will only take a little longer, then I think that's the way I should go. If I can ever get the right info from the schools
