    My suggestion would be to start over. I don't know what LPN programs wouldn't "care as much" about academics. The LPN school I graduated from required 4 semesters at 21 units a semester (9 of those were for clinicals) and a minimum passing grade of 80% in all areas and on all exams. We graduated with an associate of science in nursing. The days of attaining an LVN/PN after one or two semesters are gone forever. The LPN INCLEX is also no longer a walk in the park - if it ever was. So do yourself a favor and get your priorities straight, then do the absolute best you can do. Your future patients deserve only the best.

    if you do decide to go for lpn, and i am not saying you should, then you should aslo look into the lpn to bsn program for later instead of lpn to rn to bsn.
