  5. Is there really a future for new LPN's??
    I'm in Washington State and it's pretty much the same here as everywhere else that I've heard about. The hospitals hire LPN's but they are called techs and are only paid a couple dollars more than...

  6. Tired of being responsible for grown adults!
    Sounds like my program. It is really frustrating. Too many people just want to get through without doing anything to earn it, and then those of us who are dedicated get punished for it. It makes me...

  8. Being a CNA
    Yes. I believe every nursing student needs to work as a CNA. I can't stand that half my nursing class is "above" CNA work. Drives me crazy!!! If you don't want to wipe butts and clean up puke, please...

  9. Clinical uniforms?
    All gray matching top and bottom scrubs. With the school logo on them. But they are unisex so they fit horribly on females. Half of us went and bought our own scrubs in the same color so we could get...

  13. Get LPN through Tech School vs Community College?
    I chose a private college LPN program because I would've had to do all my pre reqs (1-2 years), wait for acceptance (1year), and then do the program (2 years) at the CC. So instead I went to a one...

  14. ATI LPN Books
    My school uses ATI. I love the videos, practice tests, and rationales. The only thing I don't like is the lack of an index and glossary, like others have said. We have taken end of semester exams...

  17. Do your classmates really care?
    Yeah I feel the same in my program. About half the class really cares and tries hard and shows up on time and turn in their homework on time. The rest just don't do their homework and call in sick...

  18. LPN students, were you able to continue taking BSN pre-requisites
    I might have in my first semester, but after that it has gotten so intense that there is no way. I was going to try, but am really glad I didn't because I barely have time to complete all of my...

    You will have to finish your GED first. You don't need any pre requisites though. Those are all part of the program. However, you can do them at a CC for cheaper and then transfer those credits to...
