Hi, This is my first post here although I really have enjoyed reading through some of the threads. I am going to start school next mth to get my core classes done then I start an LPN program the following spring,
my main goal is to become and RN in labor and delivery, My Dr who delivered all 4 of my children suggested I skip the LPN program and go strait to the RN program, I was thinking of working as an LPN for awhile then going for my RN so I would have the LPN experience first.
What do you guys suggest?
I do want to keep taking classes after I become an RN also, and I can't wait to help moms bring their new babies into this world, is working in L&D harder than other areas of nursing? to me it seems like it would be fun but then I don't know everything they do, my husband is also worried about the emotional aspect of nursing because if you told me your husbands, dads, daughters, friends, sister died I would cry,,
also I am going to be 32 here soon,, is that to old to be starting a nursing career??
Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions
