I'm an MA trying to get an LPN, which I was told in MA school was the same thing, because LPNs are being "phased out" in the workforce and MAs will take their place. I learned through these forums that is not quite the case. I would like everyone's opinion on where I should turn from here. I can't go to a physical school, so I NEED an online school. I have found one where I could become an ADN (associate degree nurse). Or is it possible to take the nclex with my MA schooling, pharm. tech. schooling and my experience? Or should I get the ADN, then take the nclex? I have no idea what to do or where to go to get this done.
