I really want to be a nurse, and I was thinking about becoming an LPN. I'm a senior in HS, and one day I would like to become an RN. But I'm ready to start a career, and I honestly don't want to do another four years of school yet. I like the idea of being an LPN, but everyone expects me to go the BSN route. I know RN's make more, but I'm young, and I don't have any kids, so I should be ok.....so basically, I'm worried about everyone thinking I'm taking the easy way out, and doing LPN. Because the people around me think degrees make the world spin. What should I do? Is LPN a good career choice for a 18/19 year old?
