Just curious how many LPN's plan to move up to RN or stay an LPN?I am confused and not sure. I am 43. Working LPN in a doctor's office, 1 year exp. I like it in the office, no evenings or weekends. Kids are 9 and 12.....don't need to work fulltime. I also teach CPR at the hospital, and this is where my confusion comes in. I love the hospital....I always did. And when I am introducing myself, I only say "nurse"...I feel embarrassed that I am "only" an LPN. And I have had doctors and RN's say that to me..."oh your only an LPN..." and it makes me feel lousy.I tried LTC when I first graduated it and HATED it....I still need 4 more pre-reqs before I can even apply for the LPN-RN bridge, I wish the clarity of what to do would come to me.I feel passionate about teaching, I love to teach, I guess there is my answer. To have any credibility as a teacher I should at least be an RN.What are your plans?
