Hey everyone, I know this sounds like a strange question, and I am going to try my best to explain.
I am a LPN currently finishing my ADN (9/2011) and planning on going on to get my BSN (starting 10/2011) at a different school all within the same metro area.
So if I take and pass the NCLEX in October (a requirement for the BSN program), can I work as a LPN at my current job while in school, or do I have to try and find a new job as a RN? I work as an agency nurse, with 24 years experience and very few if any jobs around here for RN's, many that require a minimum 1 year experience that I will not have to be able to apply for the positions.
This subject has also come up with others in my ADN program who are CNA's and scrub tech's who are worried that they will not be able to find a job right away as RN's, and wonder if they can keep working as CNA's or Scrub Tech's.
Thanks for all the help in advance!!
