I would say that there are plenty of good things about becoming an LPN. It simply depends on what the individual's idea of a good thing is.

You make twice as much as a CNA ! :) That's pretty good to me.

I am glad I became an LPN first rather than starting RN school first. I feel better prepared in clinical and in class because my school's LPN coursework was very close to RN coursework we just learn more in RN school and the teacher's expect way more from us "LPN'S". Also you can work as a LPN while in school if you choose to pursue your RN career and make way more money than a CNA! Good luck with the path you chose!

Many people use their LPN license to help them get into RN school by way of an LPN to RN transition program.
