I'm curious about the associate degree LPNs. Don't LPN have a more limited scope and less pay? Isn't an associates degree about the same amount of time in school? I was under the impression that LPN was a one year certificate type thing and associates degrees were RNs... but I know a woman that says she got an associates degree LPN. If the amount of time in school is the same, why would someone take that route? Maybe I'm mistaken about something?
