I think most LPN’s are as capable as most of the RN’s I have worked with – as with all levels that are good and bad in each level. Although LPN’s do so much hands on care along with the charting, med’s etc., which makes LPN’s valuable for employers ( less pay – more work) . I have been in the nursing line of work for apx 20 years – as a LPN – I have on several occasions went back to school – life has slowed me down each time – my last stint in school – I had completed most of the course requirements to complete the RN program – and due to family issues, life issues in general I was unable to complete – now at 51 yrs old – I am content where I am as a LPN – I am confident in my skills and knowledge and do not feel at this point in my life I could work and go back to finish the program. It would be great if there was a program where years of service accounted for something and LPN’s could take boards test out to go from LPN to RN, without having to spend extended time in a classroom.
