i just attended the workshop in reading, pa. i think they have about 3 a year in different parts of the country. our tuition covered the workshop fee, we had to pay for materials and the hotel. well worth it, and lots of fun seeing that most attendees were frontier students. click below for info.

What area do you live in? I went to a hospital school of nursing, and I had no hospital experience before I started. I think RN is the way to go. Where I work, there are not many jobs for LPNs. I work in labor and delivery, and we don't have any LPNs. It is true that you will get done more quickly if you become an LPN, but if it is your ultimate desire to become an RN, go for it. You should be eligible for stafford loans, they are not income based. I went to nursing school at the age of 40, and it is the best thing I ever did!
Thanks for the info.
I have been reading everyone's posts and feel that I must comment. Keep your cell phone in your locker or car. Not only students are checking for messages and answering texts. Some nurses do it too. It drives me crazy. In the case of an emergency, someone should know what # to call at work. There are phones in the hospital, and someone can get a message to you. We were in a room with a women who was delivering her baby when a student's cell phone rang. We all turned and looked at her as she answered the phone. The doctor yelled at her to get out of the room. Later she was boo hooing that the doctor was mean to her. Are you kidding??!!
You do need experience. I am in an RN to BSN program now. From Frontier's web site - Have one year of nursing experience. The Admissions Committee may consider other significant experience in health care.
LPNs cannot do IV push in PA, but can hang IVs. Any RN, diploma, ADN, BSN, can do IV push.
a statistics course within 10 years (either an upper level undergraduate or graduate course) for all post-baccalaureate msn students. applicants may choose to take a college level statistics course at a local college or take it on-line at the fsmfn n404 statistics. see the statistics course prerequisites (http://www.midwives.org/statistics.asp) for the course requirements. i got this from the web site.
