Apr 28, '05Quote from New_Mom_LPN_StudentWow, I have never heard of a four or five semester LPN program. What program are you attending and where is it located?I agree we all are resposible for what and how we learn. Bu just to comment I know there still are many 2 semester LPN programs in the US, but just not down my way. Maybe that is the reason why I got the answers I did from schools. Down here you will find programs about 4 to 5 semesters in length (including summer), with clinicals starting in the first semester right down to the last.

May 2, '05Best wishes, choosing to be an LPN for now is a great idea. Here in Mass, they make about $20-25 an hour and more when with an agency. Because of this, many LPN's feel comfortable with this and do not go on to the RN. I will be in this boat soon, as I did get into the LPN program for fall. So hopefully I will remember my own advice to you Please continue to the RN soon.
May 3, '05[QUOTE... but considering that one of the people that gave me the wrong info as you say, what the department head of the nursing program, in that instance I'm pretty much assured that info in right on. So take it how you want.[/QUOTE]
Then I would say you are looking into the wrong nursing program. There are good ones and there are bad ones. If the graduates from RN school are without any basic skills then I would not be interested in that school in the first place.
Good luck to you.
