I think it is awesome that you are going back to school to further your education. I have been an LPN for over 15 years. I was an MDS Coordinator and relief supervisor for the DON where I used to work. My job now, has both RN's and LPN's and we all are doing the exact same work. Only difference is they are paid at a higher rate. I'm not complaining just stating a fact. We also are not doing direct patient care, just in case anyone wonders. I also train new hires at this job, RN's and LPN's, as I have been there the longest and have the most experience in doing this job. I would like some tips on how to get some scholarships so that I can go back and get my RN.
