I am interested in becoming a nurse. Because of finanical obligations, I just can't stop working, and go back to school. In my area there are several options (MSN, BSN, RN, LPN ) all require day time full time study, and can be very costly. However I did find two night LPN programs, which take about 14- 16 months, and are affordable. I planned on keeping my current job (I teach elementary school) and going to school at night. I figured I could manage both, but after talking to one of my friends I am not so sure anymore. I have never had to do both at the same time. I thought I would give it a try and see what happens. I really would like to know how hard is LPN school? Do you really have to study 4 to 6 hours nightly? Is your whole life consumed by just school and clinicals?
