    Welcome to allnurses! I'm a LPN & I'm going back for my RN this fall. If you're young & don't have many expenses I would go the RN route (if you go full time you can get your ADN in 2 years). You'll have a lot more opportunities open to you as a RN. While I don't regret being a LPN in any way it sets limits to where & what you can practice. Just my opinion, good luck whichever route you choose!

    I agree with the above. Go the RN route if you are able to. The salary difference is and the job opportunities for the RN is better.

    Good luck and welcome!
