It seems there is so much negativity regarding nursing. I am starting nursing school next month and it is something I am very excited about. It is a little scary to begin with since I am in a pretty good career to begin with and haven't been to school in a long time. I just wish someone out there could give me some reassurance that nursing isn't all bad as I so often see here. I am going for LPN to start with and later will go back for RN. I also, have a question about specialties. In the business I am in now, becoming a specialist in a certain area is where things seem to going. As an LPN, are there any classes to take to go into a specialty or can you only specialize as an RN? Are we really limited as an LPN? Any feedback would be appreciated.
