tiredstudentmom 162 Posts Specializes in Medical Assisting. Has 5 years experience. Nov 12, 2010 I agree w/ many of the other posters I see here: if you mention that you are going for lvn or lpn they ask, "why are you wasting your time?" is usually other students aiming for RN (ADN) or BSN. I have talked to other nurses and they say go for it! Everyone has a niche and we just have to find ours. Plus if you want to, later on, there are many, many programs that you can transition to RN or BSN. If one should choose, LVN is a viable job as any.
