first lpn check

  1. 1 I know there are a few threads like this. They are mainly directed to RNs. While that day will come I'm preparing to be a LPN. Besides the pay dif difference is pretty big between the two. so with that being said, what did you/ will you buy with your first paycheck?

    A good 30% is going straight to savings so that we can leave this horrible neighborhood. Extreme poverty, gangs, violence and drugs galore. It'll b so nice to leave.

    FULL TANK OF GAS. no more $20-$25 at the pump for me lol.
    Maybe that's it. I'm so dead set on moving I don't wanna think of anything else

    My first cheque? 10% to savings, then took the family out for a nice meal, then blew the rest on me. Shallow, I know.

    But after that? 10% in savings, 50% or more to the government for my student loan (paid it back in less than 18 months) and the rest went to making life a bit more comfortable.

    Do you mind if I ask what state you live in? I got my LPN in Georgia a hundred years ago and got my RN through Excelsior College. I don't remember what I bought with either first check....it probably went towards bills since my savings account still has an enormous amount of dust build-up. LOL!

    I attended rhst. The school with the bad rep. I went to the Chester campus. Despite all the bad press. I had amazing instructors and I know my stuff
