I have been enjoying my visits to the message boards on this site. I am starting the LPN program in Aug., I am 51 and have been a massage therapist for 15 years. I am very excited about my new career choice and hope that I can carry through with it...I have to carry through. I would like to bridge into RN or BSN and then to nurse practitioner eventually. I would like to be able to use what I have learned as a massage therapist in my dealings with my patients. I was in a delima a few weeks ago as to whether I really wanted to go into the LPN first or just try later for the rn route. I have already been accepted into an LPN program so I feel now that that is the way that I should go. I have enjoyed classes like medical terminology
(which we do a lot of online work) and computer class. Dosage Calculations is not easy for me but I am working hard on it (we had to take these classes as a prereq.). I really am looking forward to spending more time on this site and others.
