I'm just about to finish LPN school in 4 months. RN nurses congratulate me on going to school but then say when are you planning on getting your RN next. I'm saying to myself I haven't even finished LPN school or better yet worked as one and your talking about RN school like LPNS are not an essential part of nursing. And most of the nurses I come across say the same thing..."LPN'S are alright but you really want to be an RN". What's up with the pressure of getting an RN degree, it's like if you don't, your really not a so called "true nurse" why can't they just congratulate and leave it at that. I'm curious what others think.
