If I get my LPN at a technical college do I have many opportunites to go to different colleges on that LPN?
I am trying to get into local accredited college but have missed the deadline for Fall enrollment. I am on unemployment and can keep it for another year if attending school so think now is a good time to go for it. Since I missed the cutoff for all colleges in the area to start Fall 09, isn't it a good idea to go ahead and get LPN while on unemployment then work for a year and go back to get RN, I already have a Bachelors in Ed.
Some colleges have scared me because Lanier Tech isn't accredited but their is a bridge program from Lanier Tech to North Georgia college so I am safe doing that right???
Nervous I am doing the wrong thing?? Need to make a decision like today!

Please don't even consider any school that is not accredited. It will be a complete waste of your money and time.
Make an appointment with the RN program you want to get into, and find out which LPN programs have transferrable credits. Most commercial LPN training programs in my part of the country are not designed to result in any transfer credits.
I would also advise you to evaluate the LPN employment situation in your area. You may discover that they are only used in long term care or that new grads are finding it difficult to get a job.
