Hello, I'm new as of tonight. Great site. Question: I'm in an LPN program, have 5 months left. I've been approached by others to pull out and go on and get my RN.... which is what I do want, and have planned on it longterm.... however, I have had 5+ RNs tell me that they would finish the LPN course/program and then go after the RN.... while a couple have said pull out, take summer off and start RN school ... either Associate or BSN program..... I'm 50/50 on the decision... would love some advice, suggestions, points of view... I'd like to eventually have a BSN and one day masters and possibly teach.... but getting out and working as an LPN while continuing courses for RN was my previous goal. Bottom line is, job with good pay sooner than later seems to be my foremost thought...however, maybe getting scholarship
/loan and biting the bullet and going on to University/college and getting the RN-BSN or Associate RN would be better.... ????? thanks for your thoughts!
