I'm currently finishing my 4th semester in college and wrapping up my pre-reqs. There's a certain RN program I'm looking into (a rather exclusive one), one problem is that they require health insurance, which me and my boyfriend can't afford for me. And also I need to take a chemistry class still to apply.Option B is I was accepted into an LPN program...My mother is totally against it, says it's a waste of time and money. I have a month to get all my backround checks and health records into this program, so I'm on a time crunch.I'm totally stuck here...A benefit to doing the LPN program is gaining some clinical experience in a health care setting, which I've never worked in before. This could help me be prepared for clinicals in an RN program. A draw back is the money. A benefit to going right for my RN is obviously, i'd be going right for what I want.From an outside perspective, what is the more logical thing to do?? I know no one can make my decisions for me, but maybe someone with experience and insight may have helpful advice. Ugh, I was up all last night worrying about this. I'm a lost little puppy here.
