lpn to bsn?

  1. :spin: good day!! this is my first time writing!
    i am currently enrolled in rn program but want to move out of state next summer. i was thinking of challenging the lpn license, working for the summer until i receive a temporary permit and then move and work as an lpn while i continue school. should i pursue a bsn or complete the last two semesters of the rn? i am currently 2 credits short of a ba in biology from years ago. ( ps....i am 40!) my goal is to establish a home base in my new state next summer, finish school and then do travel assignments for a couple of years to see the world...then home again...for an msn!!!
    i don't fully understand all of the strategies and options so i would appreciate any advice you may have.
    thank you in advance! happy day!!!!!!!!:angel2: needing advice !

    to be honest, since you are only thiniking about moving, why not stay where you are for the final two semesters of the rn program you are in and you will have the 2 credits that you need for your ba . you could take the lpn boards, work and gain the experience while completing rn school.

    when you moved to your destination, you will have experiences as a nurse, be able to sit for your rn boards, upon passing the nclex-rn you can work as an rn and complete your bsn degree.

    I'm not sure of my advice to your so I will just zip the lip on this one and leave it up to someone else. I do want to wish you well in whatever it is you have decided to do.
