What your nursing plans? LPN or RN and why? If LPN, has any RN's (or anyone else) tried to talk you out of it? I have several RN's that are trying to talk me out of the LPN schooling, stating for me not to waste my time or money and to just go ahead for the RN (unless, I'm told, I only want to work in a nursing home). Personally, I do not think LPN is a wast of time, I just can't decide which is right for me and my age. I will be 55 in October of this year and I am in pre-nursing classes this semester. I have applied for the fall 07 LPN Program, but I have not ruled out going ahead and getting pre-reqs out of the way and applying in the Spring of 2008 for the Fall 2008 ADN Program. I'm just curious about the rest of you. Blessings to all!!
