LPN students, were you able to continue taking BSN pre-requisites
- 0Apr 20, '13 by HeatherMaxI am crossing my fingers that I will get into the LPN class that starts in September, and have a question...
Will I have time/energy/brain power left to continue taking my pre-requisites for the BSN program?
been there, done that?
- 0Apr 20, '13 by lpnstudent2013I might have in my first semester, but after that it has gotten so intense that there is no way. I was going to try, but am really glad I didn't because I barely have time to complete all of my assignments and study for tests. I even had to cut back a day at work to make sure I could study enough. I say probably not, but if you don't work at all and don't have lots of social demands then maybe you could do some.

I hope to continue with a few online classes, so I can crank out all the pre-requisites my goal is my BSN. I know that the second 9 months are insanely intense and I will be lucky to remember to shower, so there is no way I could take any then.
- 0May 12, '13 by KittythestudentnurseI had 8 classes my first semester including clinical half way through...I had no time/energy/brain power for anything else...I know that some people have kids and work during school, I don't know how they do it, they are heroes to me...but I definitely wouldn't even think about taking on extra work, LPN school is stressful and draining enough!
- 0May 13, '13 by SWM2009I'm 12 months into an 18 month program. There is no way for me to have been able to take other classes. However, I also work full time and I am a widowed mom of 2 so my circumstances are probably quite different than yours.
Even with not going to school everyday, there is still a ton of work to be done in an LPN program. The reading, assignments, exams every week, clinicals, lab time...all of it still ends up taking a lot of time.
