I learned some good advice on this thread so thank you because this is what I have been debating for a while!!
I have a couple questions for anyone that would like to answer or help me out!
I took all my pre-reqs for RN school and got OK grades in them, not good enough to get into the lottery schools right away but got on a waiting list at a really good school, started in the high 400's and am now at 100. I've been on it for about a year and a half and meanwhile got my CNA and started trying to get into an ROP LVN program and just got accepted! I start in October and it's a 13 month program and I'm super excited!
My question is...do you think if my number gets called up for the RN program before I finish the LVN program (it may likely happen that way) that I should drop the LVN and go straight into the RN?
A few people have told me to YES drop the LVN and go into the RN because it takes a long time to go from LVN-RN by the time you start working and get into a bridge program. The LVN school is ROP so its pretty cheap so money wouldn't really be the big issue for dropping and starting the RN I'm wondering if thats what other people would do or would you finish the LVN and then bridge to RN??? Also what if I were to graduate LVN school and then right after got accepted into the RN program, can you start the 2 year RN program as an LVN or do you have to apply for the bridge as an LVN?? Would you just not tell the school that you have your LVN license or what???
I feel like I want to finish the LVN and get experience working because waiting another 3 YEARS to get a nursing license just seems sooo long because I've already been waiting soo long!! But that might not be the right way to go since my ultimate goal is RN....
Thank you for any advice you guys have!!! I have learned soo much on this website!!
