Going Back

  1. I have decided to go back for my RN. I start classes on Monday. I got my LPN last November and have really struggled getting a good position. My area is flooded with LPNs. I am pretty excited though, After this semester I only have 3 more classes to take before I can petition for the RN program. I am working fulltime and taking fulltime classes. I know it will be stressful, but I am ready for it. I will be taking a new job within the next few weeks also, it is still fulltime but the hours will be better for school. Right now I work in a medical office, I will be working as a telehealth nurse at a medical monitoring company. I am very excited about it.

    I do wish though that I would have went straight to RN. Like I said in my area LPN positions are few and far between. I read on here about LPNs who have excellent positions at hospitals and if that were the case here I would probably be content as an LPN. I do believe though that my LPN course will be very beneficial to my RN classes.

    Always great to hear a LPN going to RN. I had many friends in my RN program doing this. I found LPNs to be a great source of knowledge and expertise in nursing politics and general expectations. Good luck!
