So far, I am an 'A' student and school is actually pretty enjoyable for me. However, I am quite fearful of my clinicals as a result of meeting many people who did not survive the nursing program. I currently work at a hospital and I have been working in healthcare ever since I was a Junior in High School. Medical terminology and the medical field in general is like second nature to me. I live and breathe it! I absolutely love it! On top of that, my mother and grandmother are both nurses. My mom is an RN. I would like to start off with the LPN program so that I can get experience as a nurse and hopefully once I graduate as an RN (once I've completed my LPN) I will be more likely to get a job than my classmates that have no experience. With that being said, are LPN clinicals as hard as RN clinicals and will I do better than most because I have a medical background? Also, I am not a traditional student and this is not my first time in college. I am much more focused now that I am older and I think that is why so far I am getting an A in both of my pre-req classes. I am also still in my 20's if that helps anyLast edit by mrsmoultrey on Mar 2, '12 : Reason: MORE DESCRIPTIVE TITLE WAS NEEDED
