Hey everyone!

  1. hi everybody! i'm new to this site and thought that it would be a good idea to sign up to get some info from fellow nursing students and experienced nurses. i'm really interested in peds nursing but i just don't know where to begin. where should i go after i get my lpn? do i work and the get experience in a peds unit or do i continue my education? are there online programs for that? i'm a new nursing student, so there are a bunch of things that i don't know when it comes to the path my of education. if there is anyone that could give me some guidance, i'd really appreciate it. thanks a bunch

    there are some programs are designated for the lpn's who want to become rn's. there are a few web sites you can find from allnurses....just look around....the college network is one of those....but if i were you, i will try to get into one of those community colleges....it is my advice...and you do not have to follow it...but i was a lpn before becoming a rn...and i went to a community college....and it was great!! good luck!

    Thanks for stopping by the Introductions Forum. Welcome to Allnurses!


    Good luck to you. I hope the various forums will help. This is primarily "Introductions" and I would ask questions perhaps on the LPN forum, the LPN to RN forum, or the general forum, just in case you don't get a lot of responses here.

    There are many paths to takein nursing and it can be confusing. I hope you find the site helpful. Good luck!
