WHEN AN LPN GOES FOR THERE RN DEGREE HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE AND CAN YOU TRANSFER YOUR CREDITS? I JUST HAD A BABY AND I WANT TO START WORKING AND MOVE OUT OF MY PARENTS. I REALLY WANT TO START OFF BEING AN LPN BUT EVERYONE SAYS GO STRAIGHT FOR MY RN. I WAS JUST WONDERING HOW IS THE TRANSFORMATION PROCESS.

I'm currently working towards my RN. I have my LPN, got it 13 years ago, or so. Unfortunately I waited to long and am having to take all my sciences over again. You also need to check with the different schools. Some schools will except your credits some will not. All of my courses transferred except the out of date ones. There is nothing wrong with starting off being an LPN. I enjoy it. I am getting my RN because having your RN opens up more options in the nursing field. Plus if you get your LPN go to work and find that it is just not your thing, you don't have 3 to 4 years already invested. Most LPN programs are about 9 months to 1 year in length. If you have specific questions feel free to PM me.
