I was talking to some classmates of mine (prereqs) tonight about my plan to do the LPN program, and then do an distance education program to get my RN. They all strongly suggested that I didn't follow that path. They warned that I would be discriminated against both in getting a job at the hospital, and by my coworkers. Has anybody experienced this? I have been concerned about my opportunities at the hospital anyways, since all my LPN experience will be at a LTC.
Has anybody that has traveled down this road experienced this?
