    Hi everyone,

    I'm Kris. I just finished LPN school in Tacoma, WA and am starting the RN program at a community college January 5th. I'll be taking my NCLEX-PN next month and am currently finishing up my preceptorship on a med/surg floor noc shift at the children's hospital a few days a week. I'm nervous about the NCLEX but feel pretty confident based on what former students in my program's experiences. (Everyone passed on the first try.) Anyway, I've been a member here for a while and have found it very helpful while doing careplans so thank you everyone!

    HI i've been an LPN for two years......In a bridge program at a small private college...Graduate in 5-09...Its hard as heck and sucks...Can't wait until I'm done...Never taking another college class again.....Unless its cake decorating or't wait to get my RN-its the hardest thing I've ever done...pushing 50 to boot. hanging on by my finger nails but still hanging....good luck everybody...I have never respected nurses more than I do now...We each fought our way here and each have our own story to tell. I'm proud of all of us...LPN and RN's both....we worked hard for this.

    Hey Polly - I love your name-LOL. I'm right there with you, turned 51, and graduate RN school in April '09. I joined an accelerated program, semesters are 8 weeks long, instead of 16. That means double trouble. It moves so fast, with soooo much material. I feel like I'm just keeping my head above water.

    We can do it though!! Sometimes I think, it's not as easy to study as it used to be, when I was younger. But nonetheless, still plugging along. Best of luck to you. I agree, best of luck to all of us...LPN's and RN's...schooling is not the only hard part, but the work can be too! At least it's a recession proof career.

    Again, good luck!!

    I finished my LPN program Dec 2007 and got my LPN license in March 08, I did 3 months Correctional nursing and now in my 5 month in LTC. I started in Jan 2008 taking prerequsites for the RN-ADN program @ the local community college. I am so exhausted between working full-time and going to school. I just can't seem to get pumped up and eager to learn this semester. I think I am just ready for a break.

    Believe me you are not the only one, in that boat...but reviewing this forum is encouraging, there are many that made it...and if others did, I believe I can...get the books out, take it one day at a time, one class at a time...I got discouraged, b/c all I was doing was looking clinicals...saying I can't, I can't....but I really believe I can...I know I can....I WILL!!!! You can too...WE WILL..get started.
