i'm planning to attend an lpn program in jan. i'm looking forward to it, but i have a few doubts. i have no problem working long hours but i am a little nervous about needles, it's funny because blood, etc doesn't really bother me. anyway i was told to try being a cna before going lpn... i don't think this is what would best because from what i understand cnas get the "crap" work and most if not all positions are at nursing homes, which is my last choice as to where work when becoming an lpn. not to down any cnas but there is also a problem with changing my scedule where i would work now to get the cna.
i would really like to know what other people think that are already an lpn or rn... did you go for cna before going further? regret it? wish you would have? thanks for your help, it's much appreciated.
