    Like everyone has said, talk to your local school. I would just go for the ADN or BSN if it's possible. If you started at 16 or 17 you could still graduate between ages 19-21.

    In some states, you can take the LVN class while in high school and then take the exam and go to work after you turn 18.

    Does your high school have soemthing where you can take college classes while still in high school. It is called Dual Enrollement here. You are bascily a high school student but you take most if not all your classes at the local college. The bonus is that because it is public education you get college credits for free. The best thing is that you get your high school diploma and college credits sometimes a degree at the same time.

    Good luck!

    I would slow down if I were you. I just started my LPN program in August, and I've taken 2 years of gen eds so far. I'm 20. I know I wouldn't be anywhere near prepared for nursing school if I hadn't already done those 2 years.
