RN school easier for LPNs?

If you took classes with LPNs (schools that bridge in LPNs will add the LPNs to the 2nd years of the RN program), do you feel the LPNs caught on a little easier to the information?

I'm an LPN going into a RN program and I'm looking for any gleam of hope that I will have a leg up on getting through my RN program.  My program only allows ONE fail in 2yrs (long story, I got my LPN in a different state then I'll be going to school in so I'm doing a full 2 yrs) and all scores have to be above a 79%.   I'm trying my best to convince myself that I will be ok.

It won't hurt that's for sure, but if you pass RN school, it's because you made time to study a lot, not because  you were an lpn. Rn schools is about 2-3 times harder than lpn school because it adds more detail and move through the material much faster.

I didn't even go to LPN school, so, can't compare! I was a Navy Corpsman,  that's enough to test out of NCLEX in Cali to get license. I'm hoping hands on experience will be helpful in RN school

I was in an LPN-to-RN program, and the theory classes were intense and required a huge amount of studying. The clinical portion was the part that less stressful.
