Some say they feel it was a good choice to become an LVN, and some say to just go straight to RN. I was planning to go to school for LVN until I read some of the posts here and gave it some more thought. I really prefer to get my RN, but due to some life/work circumstances, I was planning to go for LVN. Now, I think I will wait until my hubby graduates and then just go straight for RN. I figured if I become an LVN, I will have to go back to school for RN, and it'll take longer. The only thing that held me back from doing the evening RN program are the 12-hr. clinicals every Saturday. I have two young children, and missing out on them every Saturday is going to be hard, but I still want to do it. I think in the end, it'll all be worth it.Last edit by Dottie78 on Oct 31, '07
