So...here's my story. I was struggling to get into a nursing program and when I finally got into one, flunked out b.c I chose to continue to work full time...many nights by myself with at least 21 patients. So, I'm back on the grind, retaking classes to become more competitive. I've recently reapplied to the program I flunked out of and also asked to be put in the LPN pool of applicants if I'm not accepted into the ADN program. I'd later do an LPN to BSN degree program or RN to BSN program or MSN as I'm a second degree student and pretty much have all of the pre req's needed for a BSN or MSN program. For those of you wondering why I won't just go ahead and apply to a BSN or ABSN program. My undergrad GPA is a 2.88, that I've rounded to a 2.9, my pre req GPA is a 3.2, and my GPA at the school who's nursing program I was in is now a 1.0 because I got a D in the only classes I took at that school. I think it's impossible to transfer to another school if you aren't in good academic standing at your current school. So I'm basically stuck there until I can bring my GPA up to at least a 2.0. My question is, If I'm not reaccepted into the ADN program but am into the LPN program, are there any jobs for LPN's left in NC other than maybe the prisons specifically for new grad LPN's? I'd much rather work as an LPN than a CNA assuming of course I'd be making more money and would be gaining more experience.
