RE: should i do this

Hi, i am also an lpn for about 9 years and I am going to do this. I have a friend at work that just went through the program and is getting ready to take her clinical. She had almost all her liberal arts classes to do to. she did have a hard time with some things and did have to take them at a reg. college. (ie: english, micro, humanities) I on the other hand only have sociiology and the nursing classes and she highly encouraged me with the amount that i have to do.

RE: should i do this

I've been an LPN for 21 years..at one point I was enrolled in our local community college to get my RN. I didn't last long, as I was a single parent with 2 small boys at the time and HAD to work at least fulltime to survive and I was away far too much. At that point I started a program similar to this one...can't recall the name right now, but they were out of Camp Hill, Pa...and then for a multitude of reasons, I had to stop...Now, here I am, back to the beginning and determined to go the distance. You ask "should I do this?" Just ask yourself why you got the idea in the firstplace..better jobs? more money? interested in specializing in an area that is either closed to LPN's or limited? This is the easiest way I've found to get my RN..As far as how long it takes, it all depends on you, your self-discipline, how much free time you have to study, etc. This Lifespan Development course is so damn boring I could toss it out the window, but I'll stick to it and get it overwith asap. I'd really like to talk to someone who has A) challenged any of the courses and B) taken the clinical and would be willing to talk about it. Good Luck in whatever you choose to do...
