I stopped school about 2 yrs ago when my father took ill. I would say I was about a yr and a half into my schooling.I am interested in becoming a nurse. I currently work full time for blue shield of ca as an administrative assistant. I also work with 6 rn's and 2 lvn's. I make about 37,500 per year currently. My question to you all is this. Is an LVN/LPN program a better idea than an RN program? What are the pro's and con's? How much is the salary nowadays coming out of school with no experience other than your clinicals? thank you!
