Hey, just wondering if anyone has done this....
I am an average student, older also. Nearly complete with a bachelors in Communications. But have thought about nursing school for a long time now. Since I don't want to take the RN now, would LPN be easier? Maybe less workload or anything like that? Just wondering since I only know some RNs that say A&P I&II were the toughest due to labs and such. Is that the same for LPN school?
I just grauated on 2/18 after 13 months in LPN curriculum:hatparty: . As a former RN student and a GPN, I will say that it depends on what your life course is. LPN school is very intense, but you get a lot of oppurtunites on hands-on experience with the theory part. In RN school My first rotation I only got to do 1 heparin shot-my first rotation through LPN school I performed wound dressings, flushed feeding tubes, performed trach care.
A&P is also part of both curriculums, you cannot get away from it:uhoh21: , but you can take it separately before attending LPn school ( I took several courses
for preparing RN, and it did benefit me for pursing a RN in the future.)
Also, it depends on the school...If they emphasize a lot of hands-on I believe it would benfit anyone considering this path.
-I also intend on pursing my BSN in one year
, but for now give me the boards!
