Are there any LPN's that are in RN programs? Were you given any "advance credit" for being an LPN? Did you elect to take all nursing courses, although you were exempt from them?
I will be entering a RN program next year and I am not required to enroll in Nursing 1 (fall semester) since I am a LPN. I can not decide if I should elect to go on and take it anyway or not. The one reason why I am considering it is because I want to KNOW that I am as prepared as other graduates. My husband said that he would not take the course if he didn't have to.
I am confident in my nursing skills and I have an excellent academic record. The one reaon I would perhaps I would elect NOT to take the course is so that I may spend more time with my children. (Hubby is in the navy and is frequently away from home.) I have most prerequisites and I am not even required to attend full-time. (I had planned on going full-time since I have financial assistance.) What would you do? Have you been in the same situation? Have any advice? I don't have anyone else here to ask, so I'd really like your replies. Thanks !
