I have a dilema. I have been an LPN for greater than 10 years (acute care med-surg nursing). I love my job, the people I work with etc, but it has become routine in a way. I had applied to enter the transition LPN to RN program and have been accepted. I am not sure that I want to go. The school is very close to losing its accreditation due to poor percentages of students passing the NCLEX. The program seems to be in turmoil. To add to my dilema, I have also been offered a job at a small correctional facility that will pay me $5-6/hr more with better benefits than I have now, including a retirement I do not have to pay for. I have done this type of work before and I enjoyed it. I am not sure if I want to put all of my energy into school, or relax and enjoy my life? Any suggestions??
