Would you drive two hours to an LPN school?


I have finished my prerequisite for an LPN program. My projected enrollment for the actual program is Spring 2021. The school is 2 hours away. I will have to commute no more than 2 days per week. The program is 3 semesters long. Is it worth it? I'm having second thoughts. I want this so bad but don't want to set myself up for failure. I figure I can manage the commute for the 3 semesters but I'm still unsure.

You will do whatever it takes to reach your goal. If getting into a LPN program and becoming a nurse is your goal and you cannot get into another school that is closer, then yes.

For 4 years, I traveled 100 miles round-trip (4 days a week) in Los Angeles traffic to get my bachelor's degree.

It can be done.

Good luck!

At first when I was applying for school I told myself okay apply to schools an hour away. Then as time for apps was getting ready to close I was like you know what two hours would away wouldn't be bad and its only temporary 2 years max. So I broadened my radius and thank god I did I got accepted to a school an hour and a half away and I cannot wait. It's a temporary situation and its in 15 week increments. We have to do what he what to do and you know maybe if the two days are in a row one of your co students might let you crash sometimes. I say go for it.
