Too old 2 b R.NRegister Today!
- by chach1 Feb 7, '12I am an LPN, I am re- taking some science courses becouse they are over 5 years old. I am trying to get in a LPN to RN bridge program. I keep on thinking maybe I should just stop trying to get my RN and be an LPN. Its so competative out there that, I am feeling hopeless. I am in my early 40's and have been trying all my life to get to this point now, I am just thinking all this is in vein. any thoughts?
- Feb 7, '12 by HazelLPNEarly 40s? You're a kid. I went back for my BSN when I was pushing 60. I didn't go to a bridge program, I applied as an adult/non traditional student at a local private university that had the best nursing program in my area. I ended up dropping out the semester before my professional rotation was about to begin because my husband got sick. Long story short, I never finished and am an LPN to this day.
If there is a will there is a way. Just avoid the scams like the College Network and the for profit/online colleges that will charge you an arm and a leg and care more about getting your money than your qualifications.
Look into your local community college or state university for the best/most affordable options.
Best to you,

- Feb 8, '12 by akaniniYou're never too old to learn. I know LPNs going to school for their RNs in their 40s and 50s.
Go for it!!!
