You go girl! I get SO tired of hearing "don't you want to be an RN?". You know, if I truly wanted to be an RN that bad, I would be an RN. I really enjoy being an LPN, I am damn good at what I do and I like it. What more could you ask? I do know there are a heck of a lot of RNs out there that are wistfully thinking they should be LPNs, a great number of them have expressed this to me. I don't know where the general idea comes from that an LPN is a lesser person. I suspect it comes from some RNs who need to build themselves up. I don't see it as a competition, I do my job, they do theirs, we work together. I help them when I can, they help me when they can and we all get along. This is the ideal.
The bottom line--- do what you want. Don't let anyone tell you what you should be doing. Good Luck!!!
