i think it might be much more helpful to also post your question over at the lpn-to-rn forum, since you will receive more responses from current rn students who have actually completed an lpn program. after all, only an rn or rn student who attended an lpn program can accurately answer this question and relay the differences between the two programs.

you are not going to obtain a completely precise answer from an rn who had never attended lpn school. additionally, you will not get an accurate answer from an lpn who has never been in an rn program. you really need to speak to someone who has done both programs. good luck to you!

LPN , was fairly easy, I worked full time and went to LPN full time, I maintained a 3.5 GPA, I just completed the RN Program (I did all the pre-reqs and co-reqs Prior to entering the program) and I just graduated with a 3.12, I also worked full time duing this time. Yes I only had the core classes but they were the toughest I have ever taken. I studied at least 30 hours a week,

The full time RN students Drop out rate in the program was 100% only the ones that got their Chemesty and and advanced Phys. (and the others) out of the way graduated.

I only made it because of the support of my Husband AND I refused to give up, Like my one friend in school always said "failure is not an Opption"

good luck.
