Hey Everyone! I am a pre-nursing student and could desperately use some advice. Just to fill you in I am only 20 and I am a wife and stay at home mother of a soon to be 2 year old. My husband is wonderful but I don't feel as though he is 100% supportive of me going to nursing school because he rather us have another child by the time our son turns 4. My application for nursing school is due May12th and I am having the hardest time choosing between LPN and RN. According to my grades I will most likely be accepted into the LPN program this fall but I will need to take another class this summer and make an A in order to be accepted into an RN program for spring of 2010. So to sum it all up, If I get accepted into the Lpn program this fall, should I go and then go to a mobilty program later? Or should I wait and get my grade up to get into the RN program with the possibilty of having to leave a few semesters because of a pregnancy?? Please help, I need some pros a cons so maybe one option will weigh out the other.

Here is what i would do..... Go for your LPN right now and see how that goes, get a job as a LPN and see how you like it.. If you like it , stay as a LPN for now and if you think you need to move on then take RN.. Most places you work at would pay for you to go back to school ( to get your RN),

GOOD LUCK IN WHATEVER YOU DECIDE TO DO :yeah:

I'm in the same position kind of. I went to T.C.C for a year in the RN program which was part time but had one horrific teacher and dropped the semester. Now the school has went to full time and I have a 5yr old and am not sure I can handle full time. I've also questioned if LPN's are fading out and if I go to a tech school for LPN if I will be able to find a job. Please people reply to these Questions. The good thing about getting the LPN first is that atleast you wont go almost 2yr to a RN program and if something goes wrong have nothing to show for your time... that's my situation
