Want to go to lpn school but have a few concerns...

  1. 0
    I want to get a job in the medical field. I decided that I want to become an LPN. In my state they make enough to survive.. And if I wanted to go for my RN later on there are bridge programs available. I have a 4 year old son, which is why I don't want to be in school forever. Honestly, I would've done this sooner except I've always had an issue with blood and guts. I have enough confidence now to say that I honestly think I could adjust and be a good nurse. My other concern is the TEASV. It's scary to me because I graduated HS back in 2005 and my math skills are not where they should be. I basically need to reteach myself in math. My grades back in high school were mostly b's with a few c's. I almost failed but went crazy making up a lot of work before graduation. I ordered a study guide and have several math apps, trying to get back up to where I should be. I'm just wondering if I'm smart enough to even do this?

    Maybe you should take a remedial math class to help you! AND; I think you are capable of doing it if you want it badly enough. Also, there is not a high demand for LPNs in some states. You should research the job outlook in your area.

    TEAS V and HESI have great study guides to help you with that!
    Good luck

    The school I'm applying to only requires a 58% to apply. I live in Massachusetts and I found about 1,000 LPN jobs.. Mostly doctors offices and nursing homes... A few hospitals. I'm going to the info session for it next Thursday. I already ordered the TEASV study guide. If I fail the test I'm definitely going to take some math and science courses to hopefully help me out.

    It can be done, I graduated high school back in 1993! I did the LPN program back in 2007. I have since then graduated RN school!(this year) I did the bridge program, if was tough and I had to take the entrance exam 2x, our percentage for the school I attended here in VA is 66%, so whatever you sit down to do remember to focus, if you want it go for it, GOD first and always, he will get you through!
