:smilecoffeecup: I live in surprise. So far I am beginning to realize that I have to do some driving to any school. My main concern is I am too old to keep waiting to be put on a long waiting list to get into a RN program.
I could stay an LPN but I just need to get more pay than an LPN & I feel I can do the work. I looked at some of the prereq at such colleges as gateway & I think that is a lot to do before I can even apply. Also what did you mean by I was in the wrong forum?
This forum is for suggestions/problems with the website itself. That's OK, maybe a mod will move this to the AZ forum.
Well, there is little wait for LPNs to get into RN school. You enter at 3rd semester, and like I said, there might only be one class for you to take. Down here in Tucson LPNs take a transition to RN class. Otherwise, your LPN should be enough. I doubt you'd wait too long.
If you have to wait a year, ask yourself...What would I be doing in a year if I don't get my RN. You'd still be working, so why not go for it? Besides, as an LPN, there are plenty of other ways to get an LPN-RN, such as online.
Good Luck, and come swing by the Az forum......
