Hi, I am debating applying to LPN School. My only hesitation is the $30K cost it's the cheapest LPN program in my State. The Associates degree program seems something not worth considering anymore. Have B+'s/B's in most my prerequisites for nursing school
and a Bachelor's, but liytle luck getting into a program. For a BSN have to take more prerequisites and classes to apply; even for accelerated.
I was looking into the LPN program. It's $30K I probably try for financial aid of $15K. The program meets only 3 days a week so I still be able to work, which is a plus.
My biggest concern is finding a job and advancing myself. I like to skip the ADN route. Are there LPN bridge programs out there? Are there ones online?
What your thoughts on being an LPN over a RN? Work with a RN who was an LPN for 10 yrs, but made the RN jump to move out of home care. Co-worker with OT said he made close to 80 grand a year doing the job.
I like to be an LPN by time 32/33 and BSN by time 35 then look into a government/military job.
How quick are LPN to BSN bridges?
Appreciate the insight and feedback.
