Hi, I'm wondering if someone can give me some information on what it is like being an L.P.N. in the U.S. Army. Now they are making people do Medic Training before entering the L.P.N. Program.. I was wondering if anyone got their certificate of an L.P.N. in the U.S. Army. It would help if I could read what other people say about what's it like to be in the Army as an L.P.N. Or I'm thinking which would be better college or the U.S. Army for L.P.N.?
This might get you started. https://www.cool.army.mil/91wm6.htm
I was a medic in the Army. The training gave me a definite advantage in the clinical portion of my BSN program. I did a lot of things as a medic that student nurses don't typically get the opportunity to experience. I was a field medical specialist, MOS 91B. The Army had a program that was similar to LPN training, MOS 91C. The 91C's had even greater responsibility. If you have the time, do the Army thing, get the training, get the experience and get some money for college.
