So... I have decided to apply to Howard CC LPN's program under the second admission batch (since I won't be done my pre-reqs until end of next spring). I decided to go this route since I know the LPN program is easier to get into, with less waiting lists than the RN program (I hope). Is anyone else going this route either at Howard CC or another CC in Maryland? I noticed there aren't a lot of threads about application experience into LPN programs. I really would like to know if it's worth it to go this route or just wait the year to be able to attend an accelerated RN program. I'm pretty anxious to just start nursing school right away, and I think the LPN could be my way in if I can get in for next fall. I also thought about just taking my LPN and getting some work experience and then getting my RN when I found an employer who could pay for the rest of it. Any thoughts on this?
Any information would be MUCH appreciated.
