I've been a lpn for just over a year. I am 22 years old, work in geriatrics [Which I love!
], and got into nursing somewhat accidentally. I had gone to college and wasn't ready. I took a year off after my freshmen year. When I found myself wanting to go back to school an acquaintence of mine had just graduated as a gpn. She raved about school so I enrolled, and somehow graduated. [ I was accustomed to getting up around 1 in the afternoon, 5 A.M. was a little rough for me]. However I quickly fell in love with nursing shortly after I started working. I love to learn and pick up whatever I can so I am really excited about this site. I am interested in going back for my RN soon or possibly go to be a NP? Anybody have any comments on the differences between these different jobs? I'm an aggressive nurse and would love to know what the best route to go is. Thanks!
