I've been LPN for only 10 years, but I have recently decided to pursue my RN. I want to venture out and explore other area, but most of those areas are limited for LPNs. Here in Birmingham, AL alot of doors are closing on LPNs. There are more opportunities available for RN. If you are happy with your career as an LPN, by all means don't feel pressured by anyone to take a different path. It has to be your own choice. Be proud of your decision. My decision is to pursue RN.
