True. Fatima just let their LPN's go too (except for endoscopy). In RI I think we all know an LPN works in LTC, rehab, detox/psych, outpatient/walk-in clinics, dialysis, Dr offices, home care, wellness companies etc and not hospitals.
My sister loves it and has no plans to become an RN! :) She makes a good living too.
I have a BA so I will just go to grad school after I get my AD RN but otherwise I would be sure to get my BSN as soon as i could after graduating (and getting a job!!) so that no doors are closed to me.
FYI-I know Kent offers on site BSN courses with Salve because I spoke with new grads who were doing that while i was there for clinicals. Just an example of the many options out there.
