LPN vs A.A.S in Nursing
My name is Ana and I'm very interested in a career change and going back to school for Nursing!
I live in the Bronx and I'm interested in Hostos and Bronx Community college as they both offer
LPN CERTIFICATE programs, but then they both also offer A.A.S in Nursing (Rn?) degrees.
I'm just wondering if anyone can help me out to choose which path to take. I'm trying to finish as quickly as possible.
A friend told me the only difference really is whether you want to tell people you have a degree or not. He is an LPN himself, he said the pay is the same because once you are an LPN, you're a certified LPN. I'm just looking for more opinions on this?
Also if anyone is working, especially in NYC I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE any advice about nursing in general, about schooling, about the exam, about jobs, about anything you can give me advice on.
Also, if anyone is kind enough to reach out to me personally I'd love the advice and I'd love to ask some more questions, send a private message.
