hi. i am looking to nursing as a possible future career. however, i do not know if i should strive to become an lvn, or an rn. i know that becoming an lvn requires less scholling time, and of course makes less pay. but, i would like to know the basic differences in pay, responsibilites, oppurtunities, ect for rn's vs. lvn's. i would really love to work with pregnant women, or babies, could this be possible as an lvn? how mucyh control do nurses generally have over the area they work in? thank you so much for your help. it will be greatly appreciated.
