I'm a student at a community college for adn degree but my grades are not as competitive as most of the students attending and I was wondering if I should attend a lpn program first than a rn program because I feel like I wont get in and I'm so terrified about getting rejected. I'm only 20 and have no kids and live with my family but I really want to move out soon I was wondering also how good is a lpn salary and can I live good is a still going back to school for my rn? And should go for lpn because of mi grades at community College?
I know you are only 20 years old, but you are wanting to become a nurse, who is a professional in their field. It is never too early to start presenting yourself as a professional. Writing in text speak and shorthand might be okay for text messages, but when looking for advice from educated people, you might get more of a response if you write professionally.

I would take a "college success" class. This is a class that has you learn about your study skills, and looks into different careers based on your goals. An excellent professor in this class really makes a difference, as they will be helping you to decide which path is best given your skills. So select a great professor for this class.
Planning the correct career path is very important, so post if you have more questions.
