Hi everyone, 

       I recently have been thinking applying to a LPN program, instead of a BSN program. I’m 27 years old and have a Bachelors degree. I was looking at some accelerated nursing programs, but it is way too expensive. I already have school loans and don’t want to accumulate even more. The only reason why I’m interested in applying to an LPN is because I want to start earning good money ASAP. I’m planning to apply this month to begin the program In September 2020. After finishing LPN school I want to apply to a bridge program (LPN to BSNor LPN to ADN)

Should I take my prerequisites classes now (in the spring semester) for the bridge program? (A&P2 & Microbiology) or should I wait until after I finish LPN school.

Please look at RN programs, I have a bachelor's in psychology but am attending an associate's degree level nursing program for the lowered costs. I believe that many LPN positions are being phased out. If you really need to start work on short notice, perhaps look at phlebotomy and ekg technician jobs, I think the training for those is a few weeks.
