I am wanting to go to nursing school next year. I am 22 years old, married, with no kids. I am going to go to my local community college, but I don't know if I want the RN or LPN program. My husband and I both work, so I will have to quit my full-time job to go to school, which would be a strain. Is it better to get your LPN, work in a hospital and go to school to get your RN. Or just get your RN. LPN would be one year off of work, and the RN would be two years off work. To those nurses who got your LPN and worked full time while getting your RN....Was it possible? I am new to the healthcare field, i have never been in the hospital or anything. So i am not sure becuase of experience...if it would be better to get my LPN to gain experience, and then get my RN so it would be easier to get a job. Is this the right way of thinking? Any advice would be helpful..THanks,!
