    LPN vs. RN

    Thank you tonyl1234. That is what I have had an internal battle with thus far. I have decided to do just that try for LPN and RN programs ( at CC). While taking any and all the required pre/core courses that I may have to take. Within the last 6 months I tried everything I could to speed up this process and failed LOL. So, I am going with my first plan which is this.

    LPN vs. RN

    I do. I am only missing the science courses. I figured the LPN program would be quicker. I still need to take 3 or 4 courses needed to apply for the RN. I just am so anxious and have no patience at all . I want to at least get on a waitlist while take the needed pre requisites.

    Yes I am aware of CAC (Live in Maricopa)! I'm focusing on CAC pre-reqs. Good Luck to you :)

    I actually was moving forward with EVIT at one point. I backed out because the first time pass rate for NCLEX in 2017 was 54%. I also didn't want to get a high interest private loan and end up paying more. I'm back to my original plan which is waiting on the waitlist at a CC for LPN , taking my prereqs for RN (whichever comes first). So it'll be a while for me!!

    Thank you. As much as I would love to wait I cannot. My husband has been so supportive but still more income is better than just enough ! Good Luck to You

    LPN vs. RN

    Thank you everyone for your input. It helped tremendously. My final goal is to be a NICU Nurse. I completely quit everything. I work as a CNA (Rehabilitation) and stay home with my daughter during the week. I feel pressured because of my age 34. Including , I am trying to get done before my daughter starts kindergarten she is 2. I was thinking work as a LPN, take the sciences I need and bridge over to RN. I want to make sure the whole "not enough experience" factor does not come into play with this second career journey I am taking. As that has hindered me from progressing with my MHA degree. Everyone says get my RN and I agree but my finances, impatience, and indecisive is driving me nuts :/. Would working as a LPN while in school for my RN suffice for the 1 year experience the hospital requires as a new grad ? I just want to get out there, but smarter than what I did before with my Health Administration degrees. P.S. in regards to my math skills I am going to tutor sessions which have helped tremendously with the testing skills and test content. No shame in asking for help over here .. I need all the help I can get :)

    LPN vs. RN

    I have been going back and forth with moving forward with an LPN program or an RN program. I previously completed my Bachelors and Masters in Health Administration. However, I have always wanted to work in the patient / clinical environment . My past 10 yrs of health administrative experience has yet to be in my beloved hospital I still dream of. My reason for this post is I am having the hardest time making a decision on which route to take. I was accepted into EVIT Jan 2019. I am partially excited because it is pretty pricey . Then there is the CC route and I did not score high enough on the math and have to wait until November to take the HESI again. Would it really be a waste of time to go the LPN program and later on to an RN bridge? What holds me back from applying to any RN program are the pre-req science courses... Any advice would help :)

    Gateway PN 2019

    Yay! Congratulations !! Please share your experience when you get a chance :) Good Luck !!!

    Gateway PN 2019

    Placement on the list and acceptance to actually begin are two different things. High Hesi scores are not always the case to bypass the long wait .. Anyways good luck to you. The wait will be worth it the end.

    Gateway PN 2019

    That's crazy. The advisor's should say a year or longer. I was told in May it was 9-12 months for the waitlist. However, I work with a RN who was on the RN waitlist. She was planning for 2yrs and only waited 5 months. So, I'm not sure how they are making the deciding factor on who is next...
