Since we are sometimes made to feel less than welcome in the RN arena I thought I would add the reasons why I am glad to be an LPN working toward my RN.
1. We have already taken an NCLEX exam and know what to expect. Most of the RN students are peeing their pants over NCLEX and its the least of my worries.
2. We got something even if we happen to flunk out of the bridge program, fingers crossed/antijinx. I think this gives me some extra confidence and security. No one can take my LPN license from me. We've lost a couple of RN students in their second year and at the very most all they have is their CNA.
