Hello, and thank you for viewing this message.
I am interested in becoming an LPN, I have an IQ of about 97, no real learning disabilities and have a strong desire to make a change in my personal and professional life. Currently, I am 30 years old, I have no children and am fully ready to commit to the amount of dedication, studying and learning required to become an LPN.
For about ten years now, I have procrastinated and put of school until this LPN program at a local college started contacting me, inquiring about my interest in the program.
With my 'average range' I.Q., would I make a good candidate to the program; I have already passed the required TEAS (entrance exam for nursing students) test. My goal is to help those who're suffering, and to provide those people in hospice with the quality loving care that they deserve. This is my passion.
Was nursing school for you a real challenge? Also, are you an LPN or an RN?
Would you consider me to be of average IQ for someone that's already been accepted into an LPN program, and would the fact that I have a slight mental disorder preclude me from successfully completing the said program?
