I have a one-year-old, I'm finishing up my Bachelors in Political science this summer and want to get into nursing. I dont know if I should do my LPN and Bridge into an RN program, or go straight fo my RN.
I would do my LPN first just to have experience to have on my resume when I am a new RN grad. and I think it may be easier to find a job if they see i'm already an LPN. the LPN program is 12 month and the RN program is about 12 months too. If I do the LPN, I would be able to work while in my RN and make a living for my daughter. LPN is cheaper also.
But RN is my final destination other than getting an MSN in the future. I just don't want to become and RN and have a hard time getting a job due to lack of experience.
I also have my Phlebotomy Certificate now and working on Challenging the CNA boards.
Which route would you take?
