I am in the LVN program right now. If you want to be stressed out, worried about passing checkoffs by instructors who expect you to teach yourself, and who rush you to finish said check offs...then fail you for not getting them done perfectly. Or, if you want to stress yourself to death with a test every week on four or five and sometimes even seven chapters of pharmacology. Or better still, watching as classmate after classmate are getting kicked out and its not even the end of the first semester...then come and apply to the LVN program. I suggest you take the RN maybe it is less intense and you might be able to learn something from and instructor rather than clueless classmates.
