I am currently enrolled at Ivy Tech in Indiana and to be quite honest I feel like I have been wasting so much time. I have been taking classes for 2 years now, and yes I'll admit that I have slacked a bit, but I'm starting to realize the importance and pick up the pace now. So now to my real questions..
I need to decide whether to apply for the LPN or RN Program. I know that becoming an RN would benefit me more because there will be more job opportunities available for me, but I also feel like if I become an LPN and get some experience in the field I can earn money while going back to get my RN. I was hoping for some suggestions from people all around! I want to know if new LPN's really even have a chance at finding a job right out of school.
My plan for the past 2 years has been to move to North Carolina (not because of the need for nurses) but because I have family there and I really want to be there. I cant decide if I should stay in Indiana and try to get through the RN or LPN program and then move.
My grades thus far are:
English 111 - A
APHY 101 - (B minimum -- Taking it right now)
APHY 102- Taking this summer
PSYCH - (Have a C in right now, but re-taking this summer)
I am very motivated now and I WILL get an A in psych this summer and I expect to get an A for APHY 102.
I'm sorry this is so lengthy, but none of my friends or colleagues know anything about the nursing program or the opportunities after school. If anyone has any advice on what I should do then please help!
