So what do you recommend?
So therefore what do you all recommend? That a person get their LPN first and then their RN or just go ahead and go for the gusto? Do you believe that LPN's make better students when they are in the RN program? I am really curious to know what you all think?

The only prereq's I had to have before I started were Chemistry and Psychology.
My school also advised 'against' taking co-requisite courses while taking the core nursing classes. Me, being the independent individual that I am, decided not to listen to them (of course) and took co-requisite courses along w/my nursing classes. For example, I took 18 credit hrs the 1st semester of the program which included A&P (5 cr), Human Lifespan Development(4 cr), Fundementals of Nursing(6 cr), and Nursing Concepts (3 cr).
They usually discourage that I think, but it can be done......program took 2 years.
(2 Fall semesters, 2 Spring semesters, and 1 Summer semester)
