Do you feel LPN is a less intensive program than RN? How many hours a day/week do you spend studying? Could you juggle a FT job, 2 yr old, and school?
Easier isnt exactly the word I would use to describe the difference between LPN and RN school. It isnt "easier" to do LPN school. At least not at my school. IN my program, we do the first year of RN program + a bit more.(because we are getting licensed to work) IF we want , we come back for the next year to get the RN, its a transitional program. The difference is , in the time it takes to complete the program. I chose the LPN route because I need to work to make money faster. I cant afford to wait and do the longer RN program right now. Either program is equally intensive and time consuming on a daily basis.
Also, no I could not juggle any kind of job while in this program. Some people manage to work weekends but they dont get A's and many others fail trying to do it. I already have 4 kids , thats enough of a full time job for me.
