You can take an LPN course and be working in a year...then take a LPN to RN course If you want to....many places offer online courses to do this and local places to do your clinical work in.....you can take pre-requisite classes at a local junior college that may also offer the LPN-RN program. Good luck.

The thing that sucks where I live is your LPN schooling does not help towards you RN schooling. Here it's 2 years for an LPN and 4 for RN. So If I decided to go for an RN after LPN that's six years in school! Crazy

Oh well that does pose a problem cos it wouldn't be good to go through all that schooling then start working and find out that you don't like it. Maybe do a little work in the field before pursuing a career in it to make sure he hats what you want to do....maybe volunteer or become a nursing assistant?

I would start with the LPN. Make sure you enjoy the work before getting your RN. I have known a couple of people who thought they wanted to be a nurse and went for the RN and then we they started working realized it wasn't for them. So I would go the route Angela Anthony suggested.
