    Hi – I’ve recently started an LVN program in San Diego and have a question I hope someone here can answer. I decided to follow the vocational nursing path because I need to have an income right away and can’t afford to go to school for two or more years while earning an RN degree. Now that I’m studying for the NCLEX-PN though, I’m hearing from lots of people that LVNs are being phased out by most medical care facilities and that I’d be better off just studying to be an RN right now. Does this sound like what others here have seen and experienced in their work places? Will my LVN education be irrelevant almost as soon as I graduate?

What's on your mind?
