New member here! :spin: Just wanted to introduce myself...My name is Kelly, and for as long as I can remember, I've always been interested in nursing as a career. I'm currently in college as an accounting/business major and I hate it... I knew that I've always wanted to be a nurse but I'll admit I was a little intimidated because of the stories of how hard nursing school is; but I've decided, that this my dream, and I'll do anything to achieve it. I'll hopefully be getting certified as a nursing assistant this summer through the Red Cross, and then I plan on applying to LPN schools for fall '08. I was just wondering though, I know that RN programs are hard to get into, but are LPN programs just as hard? I will be applying to about 5 different programs, but the only requirements they have is that you have 3 recommendation letters, have a highschool diploma, take a pre-entrance exam, and schedule an interview...there are no pre-reqs required prior to applying. Has anyone ever been rejected from an LPN school after they applied? I'm a little nervous. :uhoh21:
Anyways, now that I've written a novel, I look forward to getting to know everyone!
