i grad in 05 PN and did not take boards as i was not going to work as an lpn due to the significant decrease in money from my job licensed in PT. I was going to bridge right away but did not as I was taking a new job at a different hospital (acute care is my cup of tea) and so i thought i would take some time to myself.
having all the pre req for an RN bridge due to my PT coursework, i was not in a hurry- plus an RN friend of mine made sense in saying that since I would be a NEW GRAD after the bridge, why necessarily get my feet wet as an lpn.. i can do that during the RN schooling etc. honestly, acute care career is definitely what gave me soooooooo much experience and knowledge that i know it helped me throught school. I was working FT and commuting 3 counties (home , work, school), in the middle of a divorce and 2 kids!! I feel the learning i did just being in acute care and working as a therapist gave me a great base of knowledge. I guess i feel if i review enough and take a million questions and brush up i WILL pass
so, to make a long story short... i did not take the boards...and while i know they are STRESSFUL and everyone gets really crazy over them, i am not so crazy about it and decided to review and take them, so i can decide what i want to do next.
SHOULD I REVIEW STRICTLY FOR LPN?? OR WOULD IT HURT TO REVIEW SOME OF THE RN questions? NOW THAT I WRITE THAT I AM SURE IT SOUNDS REALLY STUPID!! i guess i figure i could use both review?? HMMMM im sure someone will have some great advice.
anyway, thanks in advance for reading and advice i appreciate it. and also is the ATI predictor?? the best way to go???? i think i saw it for 200 and guarantee???
