Discouraged..

  1. 0
    Hey guys!

    So I passed the boards this past July, and my original plan was to finish a couple of pre reqs, which I did, and apply to an RN program. I recently decided, I don't think I want to pursue my RN, and want to build my career as an LVN, and eventually become a DSD, and then run my own nursing agency. Since I decided this, I have been looking for a job like crazy but have no luck because I am a new grad with no experience. This is a little bit discouraging, although I am being patient. The reason it's discouraging is because it makes me think " Should I just go back to school to an RN program?, did I make a mistake of not doing so, Do I have a good future as an LVN for the rest of my life?" As we all know getting into any RN program is so so tough nowadays, especially in California (where I'm from), so I wanted to do the program privately at the school I did my LVN training from. BUT, they are SOO SOOO SOO SOOO SOOO expensive. Although you complete your RN in 8/9 months... is the 45,000 really worth it? I could use that money to start my own Agency in the future, and I still need to repay my loans from my LVN program. AHHHH... I just need to know whether I do have a career being an LVN forever, as well as being an entrepreneur. It really sucks! I'm 25, and time is just passing by... any feedback would be amazing. Thanks guys <3333

    Private schools will be tremendously expensive. Local community colleges have LPN to RN bridge programs that are well respected and a fraction of the price. Have you looked into them?

    hii,

    Thank you for your response. The thing is that I didn't do very well in my core science classes. Two C's and 1 B and that comes to a 2.3 GPA, most community colleges want at least a 2.5... so I feel like I can't even go to a JC.. and even if I somehow was able to apply.. even JC's have waiting lists these days..
