hi, everyone! I need advice. i really want to study nursing, but i dont know what route to take first. I planning to start lpn first next year because i got accepted into the program. Also, i could gain experience if i want to take the career mobility path to rn. Or should i just go to bsn which i am almost finish with my general course. Or should i just go to adn community college level which i think i will never pass the entrance test. I know that if i just start straight out with the bsn (if i get accepted) then it would be more easier for me to not take all those steps lpn to adn to bsn. I dont know. if i start with the bsn (if get accepted) i am afraid i will fail the dosage calculation test and drop out for the semester. Then, the lpn or adn level take too much time for me. what should i do!!!!!

This is a question that is asked nearly every day here and debated to death. Not to discount your question, it is a legitimate one. I think if you do a search you will find enough debate to keep you reading for a year. Ultimately you have to decide what is right for you and only you. We are all different and have different ways of learning, different financial needs and different priorities in life. You have come to the right place.

I decided to go straight to the BSN, I am currently enrolled at TWU-Houston Center. I am grateful that I went straight to the BSN. B/e I do not have to climb the ladder from lpn,adn. Also, I want to get my masters and maybe phd in education so that I can teach. But anyway, if u want to get your BSN go straight to it. The school I go to allows u to retake the caluc. test if u fail. So don;t worry about that just try and go to the school. Once u get into the BSN program work hard and u will do fine. Best of luck. Also what area do u want to work in?
