Is this true?

  1. I was told the other day by an RN at work, that LPN school is more stressful than RN. She said when I get to RN school, I'll just breeze on through.
    Now, I realize it's very hard, but do you think she meant that with LPN, you start from the beginning, and RN, you all ready know some things, so you all ready have a knowledge to base your learning on?
    Just kind of curious, is all.
    Guess I want to know mostly because I want something to look forward to!
    Thanks guys!

    i also think that has a lot to do with it. i have heard bsn's say the same thing about when they did their adn program. since i have "some" medical backround i don't find things as bad as some in my class do, even the students that are already cna's or pct have an edge up on those with no medical experience at all.

    I've heard that once you are an LPN and go on for the RN for some the RN program is not as difficult as just starting out into the RN program if that makes any sense.

    But then each student/nurse has different experiences with different programs from what I've heard.

    I'm sure you will do fine Julie !!! You will breeze through !
