- 0Feb 2, '13 by AngelicDarknessQuote from anotheroneWould love to but I find we don't get much credit being an RPN/LPN. I spent 2.5 years in school to get my RPN status, it is another 3 years (1 of college and 2 of university) to get my RN. The best part? A high school student can apply for their RN and get it in 4 years. Where did the 2.5 years get me?my only advice is that if you have the time and money might as well be an rn. at least in acute care on some units you have pretty much the same duties and pts but the pay is alot less
