LPN school was a breeze, but RN school is rough. Thank The Lord, I got most of my prerequisites and RN classes out of the way before I started the program. I am still taking 16 credits this semester and at least 12 next semester, then GRADUATION!!!!! and I work full time. I haven't had a life for 3 years, but I will reap the rewards when I am done.

I can finally work only 1 job and it will be doing something I choose instead of being so limited as I am being a LPN, and not getting paid well for my knowledge. At my last job, we hired a RN for a lot more money than I was getting, then I had to teach her how to writeand do the MDS', make up the schedule, documentation on wound care, infection control log etc.... Not fair. Hang in ther. It doesn't get easier, but time gets shorter.
