I am an LPN and have recently been accepted into an LPN-RN transition program at a local college. I am so excited about starting the program and getting my RN license but the closer school gets the more nervous I find myself! I got my LPN license in 2007 but have only worked very part-time since graduating. I worked for a very short time at a hospital (loved it but had to quit due to a family situation) and spent the rest of my time at an ALF where there is really no nursing going on. I was looking over our skills checklist and realized that I haven't done any of those things in a long time, some only in LPN school, and some only once at all! I am so worried that it is going to be too difficult to jump into the bridge program being so removed from even LPN nursing. Has anyone else been in this situation? Anyone have any ideas as to how to prepare for school? Am I worrying too much or is it justified worrying?
Any ideas/advice would be appreciated!!!
Thanks so much!!:)
