Hello everyone, i could sure use some opinion or feedback, ive been struggling with trying to get into nursing school, ive try private and communities schools but because of my science bio class getting a c+ (twice) things dont look good for me, all schools in NY makes promises but only an A or B+ will get you in a nursing school because of the high volume of competitions. im a full time working mom and i go to school parttime, and i find it unfair for us working folks. ive notice that people with no jobs and no responsiblities are the ones to get in the programs. so i ask where do we fit in. my question is, did anyone try going through an LPN program then RN, ive decided to take that route, can anyone help me with their truthfull and honest opinion. ive looked into one in Jersey, so im preparing for entrance exam in the LPN. which me luck!! PS. i have to earn a living, i got two kids and one in college so i need to work full time, this school in Jersey is at night from 6-10PM.

Getting your LPN will open up the option of bridging from LPN to RN for you while giving you the means to work. Good luck in your efforts. You've made a good choice, given your situation.

I think getting your LVN/LPN will definitely work out best for you. It will help you get your feet wet in the nursing field.

Here in CA, the wait is about the same for both bridge program and the regular program. Good luck!:)
