I am wondering if anyone can help me out on this. I would like to be an RN but think I'll have to go for my LPN first b/c I'll have to work while in school and I was hoping someone could give me an idea of what exactly LPN's can do and not do that RN's can? I know it varies state to state, I live in WV and if anyone can enlighten me that would be great. Also, can anyone share their opinions on LPN training programs? Are the 12 to 18 month programs sufficient training in your opinion or are most lessons learned on the job? Thanks.
