How to Become a Nurse! LPN, RN, BSN??? by Caroline Porter Thomas
I hear it said all the time, "I want to be a nurse." To the average layperson, there may be nothing wrong with this statement and they may think it will be an easy process. But honestly, the process of becoming a nurse is complicated. There are several different types of nurses ranging from LPN and RN to BSN. The education requirements for all are similar, yet different in ways I will explain as we proceed. The following section will give you basic guidelines of the different ways you can become a nurse. You can use this section to evaluate your current status and better determine which path is best for you. LPN or License Practical Nurse is may take you 1 to 2 years to complete. Your scope of practice is similar to the practice of the RN, however the pay is less and your scope of practice is also limited. This is not a bad idea however if you want to start in this program and bridge to an RN program. LPN schools usually have bridge guidelines that can take you from LPN to RN, LPN to BSN or I have even heard of LPN to MSN. May people chose this route because it is easier to gain acceptance into the programs. Associate Degree Nurse or ADN focuses more on technical nursing skills than nursing theory (BSN focus). You can usually get this degree at a community college and takes approx 4 to 5 semesters... not including pre-req time. You are more marketable as you have more opportunities for career progression. There are also many RN-BSN programs which usually take about a year to complete. BSN or Bachelors of Science in Nursing is the generic 4 year college route. The education trends more toward leadership roles with extensive training that prepares you for leadership roles. This education route opens up the most doors down the road as most employers favor BSN degrees. However it is also the hardest route to gain acceptance to. If you already have a Bachelors degree in ANY field you have the option to apply for the Accelerated BSN program. This program can take about 12-18 months and is a great option for those seeking their second career. One disadvantage is that you still have to complete pre-reqs of Anatomy & Physiology and other science courses before applying.... although some programs have added them into the package. I really hope this helped! There is more information in my book which you can download immediately or purchase the paperback (links below) and if you ever need anything else please email me at [email protected]

Do I Know Enough to Be a Nurse by Caroline Porter Thomas
If you are concerned you may not know enough or are afraid of your ability to be a nurse, this video can help give you guidance.
Can I work and go to Nursing School? by Caroline Porter Thomas
I am Caroline Porter Thomas and created this video for Marion who asked "Can you make a video about nursing students who have had part time jobs and still excelled in nursing school." I love how you are intelligently approaching the nursing education process and evaluating whether or not this is something that a working adult could feasibly do! While I did not work, I did go to school with many nursing students who worked. While it is not ideal there were a few things that I noticed about the students who worked and were successful. This is a list of the Traits: 1. They had very clearly outlined goals and they were super excited about what they were working towards. 2. They ate relatively healthy and skipped all of the big group lunches with classmates... as I did too. 3. They said "No" a lot. To anything that would take them further away from their goals. 4. They surrounded themselves with Driven and Positive people. 5. They utilized every second wisely.... I remember one very driven student would keep his head in the book when everyone else was socializing during a class break. 6. They had a lot of FAITH!!! That they were doing what they were supposed to be doing, that they would be given the tools necessary to succeed and that their future was going to be much better. It is possible to work and go to nursing school, yes, but you have to be 20 times more focused for sure! Another thing that I saw which I forgot to mention was that it did help if they had a job which did allow at least some time to glance through their book or notes. Jobs like security guards who site at monitor screens or Telemetry technicians or maybe secretary work at a place that is not super duper busy would be great! I did see quite a few nursing students work as CNA's and although I do think that you will get some great experience, you will most of the time never be able to glance at ANYTHING!!! Of course depending where and when you work. I did see a lot of CNA's work the night shift, which did allow about an hour or 2 from the hours of 2am to 4am. So if you can handle it that could be a good option for you! So, if you do have to work... don't let that stop you!! You can still do it!!
Should I Quit Nursing School? by Caroline Porter Thomas
When do you know that you should give up? This is a hard question and one that you really have to look deep down within and ask what is the right thing for your and your family. As hard as it is, I would venture to say that 99.9999999... % of the time that quitting is not the right answer.
