My LPN school had an arraingment with the community college nearby. I entered ADN school as soon as the paperwork cleared, before I had even sat for my LPN test, back when it was the bubble test on paper. I'm glad I did. I worked while I was going to school to finish my ADN so it took me a wee bit longer than if I'd gone full bore ahead.
I am just now about to graduate from my RN-BSN program 23 years after LPN school. I've applied to CRNA schools
and have 2 interviews lined up. I'm getting kind of old for CRNA school but the hospital, not the patients, are burning me out from bedside nursing. I love the patients and the clinical critical care, not so much the never ending additions to charting and suffocating maltreatment of nurses.
Don't stop learning. Don't be afraid because you can do it. Picture yourself working where you want to work and you'll do it. Don't let fear cause you to regret what you never tried to do even though you really wished for it.
