not sure to go for lpn first or rn - Page 3Register Today!
- Jan 8, '03 by RNpupilI also want to become an RN, but thes school that is near by has a waiting as long as the Nile River and I am reluctant to wait that long. My other alternative was to complete an LpN program and transit into the RN. The waiting list at the community college where I live is 1 1/2 year , if you do not have to wait that long go for it!
- Jan 9, '03 by RNpupilI heard that LpN nursing is a good start for becoming an RN. RN new grads come out of school not what to do. Plus LpN nursing I seen teaches good bedside mannor
- Jan 9, '03 by RockHi Uncertain:
While waiting to become enrolled in a RN school,
you could be taking the general education courses,
which are usually as follows:
Two English courses
One psychology course
One sociology course
One ethics course
Two biology courses
One microbiology course
One elective, etc.
Usually adds up to 30 general education credits. This
will take up a year's time, then you'll be ready to enroll
in RN program.
Good luck !!
