I work for a large (for-profit) hospice in the midwest. Our LPNs are invaluable- they do everything except admissions, case management, and pronounce death. We are lucky to have them. Many work after hours/on-call, but always with another RN.

Financially, can you start a BSN program versus an ADN program? Getting your BSN first would set you up nicely for graduate school, since you will need it anyway. I would also get some RN experience before you jump right into advanced practice nursing.
Good Luck in whatever path you choose.
Yes from home. All you need is an internet connection and headphones (and some free software) and you dial in to the classes which typically meet once weekly. I do miss the personal interaction, but not worth driving 150 miles (one way) to have it. It's a great set up really.
