I just started the LPN program yesterday and needless to say - it is a bit overwhelming. I had planned on working while in the program to help support myself and my son (I'm also a single father), but most people I have talked to advise against it, especially If I want to maintain a 85%+ average like the the instructors recommend. Here is the clincher - I'm currently working as a Pharmacy Technician which took me 6 months to obtain (certification plus job hunting, etc). In my eyes, LPN is a better job all around than Pharm. tech and being an LPN would lead me to much more opporitunity... If I quit my job to focus just on school I WILL have support and approval from some of my family which is good. I also have enough money saved to for me to eek by the school year, and I really don't NEED this pharm. tech job. I just won't have the EXTRA money i'd be making while working in the pharmacy. and I would also have the feeling of giving up, because there are other people who do it all and get through. ANY ADVICE???
