    Starting the LPN-RN program tomorrow and I'm sooo stressed out!

    Hi everyone, I have midterms this week. Can't believe this 1st semester is half way over. I'm so excited about finally doing this. Can't wait to walk across the stage as a Registered Nurse graduate. Sending encouragement to all of you. May God bless you on your journeys. Ttyl Camy

    Starting the LPN-RN program tomorrow and I'm sooo stressed out!

    Wonderful to hear ladies. I think it's so awesome when women uplift one another. It amazes me how complete strangers can bond this way... I recall LPN school being very demanding as well. I have 4 semesters to go to get my RN but this 1st semester I have no clinicals because of me being a LPN. I'm just taking Math of Dosage, LPN to RN transition and Physical Assessment. I am also married with 2 children and I was bumped from full time to part time employment. I felt like I couldn't do this and this wasn't the right time... I'm so glad that I found my focus. I wish you ladies luck on all your endeavors and I'm sure we'll all do just fine. -Camy

    LPN to RN bridge program

    Hello fellow LPN's. I am so excited about furthering my career in nursing. I started out as a CNA and then almost 6.5yrs ago I decided to go get my LPN. I'm so grateful and blessed to have been accepted into the RN program at ECC in Buffalo. Even though its a community college it's a very demanding program and many qualified applicants are over looked. Many people came to school with their heads low after they were declined. I tried to be very humble but I couldn't help blushing a little bit. So school starts on next Tuesday and I can't wait. Luckily, all my prerequisites have been previously completed and I only have Math of Dosage to take along side my nursing courses. I'm ready for the next 4 semesters... I'm sure they will be stressful but I'm more than ready. I'm nervous and excited but I know I can do all the things I put my mind to. Good luck and God speed with your future endeavors my fellow nurses.

    LPN to RN

    OMG THANK YOU AND CONGRATS!!!! QUOTE="Ella26;7084653"]I like the "boot camp" comment, its funny, but she right. I just graduated from a mobility program LPN-RN (ADN) on friday 12/20/12!:) I am just elated, its surreal still. I have been an LPN for 3.5 yrs. I also worked full time (had to to pay bills) at clinic M-F 830-5pm. The days I had clinical on weekday I had to take vacation time. Our program was class (theory on care of complex and multiple patients) on thursday nights from 6-10pm and clinicals sometimes on mon/tue from 3-11 at hospital or 7-3 on sat/sun at hospital. So this last semester we only had 18 clinical days. I did 6 days in sept, 2 days in october, 6 days in november, and 4 days in december. All at the hospital. It was 10 days in med-srug, 4 days in pysch, and 4 days in OB-Maternity. I started the program sept 2011 and just finished. We started with 18 LPNs and only lost 2. I do not feel that it was harder for LPNs. I feel it was much easier because it was an accelerated program. And I had the experience and backround to go off on. Be aware though that your training as an LPN does not seem to be recognized as much they didnt refer to us as nurses. They would always say "when you become a nurse then ...." I always felt like hey it says nurse in my title doesnt it? But I guess it doesnt matter because we are not RNs. Oh well I wont have to worry about that for much longer after I pass the boards. I am currently waiting to get my ATT so I can schedule my NCLEX-RN in January 2013. I think you will do great. Being an LPN is an advantage. I worked full time and still managed to finish the program with a 3.7 GPA. I feel you get out of it what you put in. If you give it 100% you will do fine.

    LPN to RN

    Thanks for the response ladies. I am attending Erie Community College and I'm in the LPN to RN track. I had orientation on Monday and our instructor told us that its somewhat hard for LPNs to transition. We are already nurses so it can be difficult for us to become a student again. I am very dedicated... I can't wait to start next month.

    Hi. I am in the same predicament as you. I've been a LPN for 6 years and I start the RN program on January 22. I can't wait. I'm very anxious and nervous. Congratulations to us both :)

    LPN to RN

    Hi all, I'm new to all-nurses. I received news 2 weeks ago that I have been accepted into the RN program. I am very excited but scared. It's been 6 years since I became a LPN. I hear the program is highly competitive and strict but great Registered Nurses come out of this program. Any advice?
