Lab Tech Asst

  1. 0
    I been a Lab Tech Asst for 20yrs and my children are all adults. I live alone and I want to pursue my dream to become a nurse. I am 45 and would have to start with my pre-requisites. I was trying to decide if I should do the Lpn then Rn or just do Rn? Thank you for any feed back

    Whatever works best for you ....

    Got the flexibility and money?

    Go straight for RN.

    Where do you want to go with your career in nursing? Will that require you to be a lpn or rn? Have you looked into colleges and their lpn and rn programs? I personally choose to go for my rn (the associates degree path, for now) because it is only a year longer than the lpn program offered at my local community college.

    The reason I was planning to do the Lpn first bc its probably easier to support myself through the Rn program. I can probably get something 3days a week vs as a Lab Tech my company doesnt offer part time.

    Do you plan on working full time during the lpn program? If it is only an extra year for the rn (associates) I would highly suggest you to push through it and work full time as you get the rn. I have heard of many others doing so! You can do it
