    Small rural hospital here . . no LVN's in L&D. They do work PP though.

    Why not go for your RN now? Just wondering?

    Well there are a few reasons, I can get right in to a private school w/out finishing all my pre-req's. Its 1 year. BUT it's $24,000 and thats a whole lot of money to spend especially when LVN's at hospitals in my area start at about $15.00.Also I think part of me is very scared about starting the RN program right now. I think if I took the baby steps to be a RN it would be easier on me. If I went to a city college I have about 3 more pre-reqs to finish. Then the 2 year nursing program. Do you have any advice? I could really use it.

    GVN is graduated vocational nurse, before you go and take your nclex to become LVN. I work in texas. Every hospital is different so it pays to check around. I do get to labor the patient and do the delivery. The RN does the baby only in my hospital (right after the delivery that is). So we play a big part in the unit. :hatparty: Good luck on your search, labor and delivery is an awesome area to work!
    I think I want to move to Texas now. That's so great how much of a role you play in L&D. Do you think about going back to get your RN ? The school I'm thinking about going to is $24,000. and thats alot of money so I still have alot to think about. Any advice would be great ! Thanks for all your help.

    I am actually in my last semester of the pre-reqs right now. I have applied for the Aug. RN program. If I do not get in, I am doing excelsior right away. I would defintly recommend RN school. I wish I would have went that way in the first place. Good luck which ever way you decide! :uhoh21:
