I have been a LPN for the past fifthteen years, and I have worked in many different areas and know matter how much I may enjoy the area, after a while the nagging desire to be a RN always returns. Why? Are wage is not so bad... okay it could be better! Maybe it is job security or maybe just a feeling of inadequacy, what ever the case it always comes up. My dilemma is I cannot afford to go back to school full time ,(I work full time) Iknow I can take it through Athabasca university but it will take approx 7 years! I will be 54 by then! Most nurses retire at 60. I guess I just wanted to vent and get some other perspectives on this. Feel free to speak your mind I will not be offended,am I being rediculous, should I just be content being a LPN?
