Hi! I can apply to the nursing programs
in March. At that point I will have all my prerequisites and electives completed, except for those that can only be take exclusively in the nursing program. Of course if I don't get accepted into the RN program on the first try and I do get accepted into the LPN program I won't have much say in how or what I do, but regardless of that, I am wondering what your opinions are on either starting out as an LPN, then bridging to the RN program or just going straight into the RN program? For me, time and economics are a huge factor in what may very well prevent me from doing the full 2 year program for the RN. And yet I feel if I don't , that I am not doing all I can do, or I am limiting myself (and I wonder to what extent?). I have also heard that the LPN program is extremely intensive..that they are more compressed for time (which kind of makes sense to me). Do you feel that an LPN income is something that would sustain two children until I was able to complete my RN? I am worried that problems could crop up in my marriage that would result in me not being able to finish the RN program..which is why time is a concern. Thank you.
