Like all newly licensed LPNs, I expected to find it challenging to get employed ! at least for the first 4-5 months, now that this time has pasted, I still have not found a job, and I want to go back and get my RN at one of the local schools. I was talking to an employed LPN who left RN school because she didn't know the "skills" that she needed, to past RN school. Her instructor, informed her, that she needed to acquire these "skills" for herself, on the job, because usually, LPN to RN programs, are geared toward working LPN who want to go back to get RN. So should LPNs work and gain experience in the field before entering the LPN to RN programs ?
