So I finally got my acceptance letter for my lpn program. So thrilled. I am surprised how many people want to discourage that I am doing lpn- rn instead of straight rn. To me this is so perfect. Instead of 4 years as a cna I will net about 2 years then about a year to 2 years as an lpn. I will get higher pay And more experience by the time jam finished with my rn.
I am so excited! Being an lpn feels like a huge step up from cna. Four years of college is intimating but this will total two years with prerecs. And I will be one year away from an rn! ( I have been doing prerecs for both )
I have confidence I made the right choice despite sooooo many opinions. Where I live there are plenty of lpn jobs. Nursing homes ( where I currently work as a cna) outpatient , labs, rehabs, even the hospital ( where you are titled nurse technician ) looking forward to this next stop on my nursing school journey.
