I’ll be finished with my PN program.  When people think I’m going to be an RN and I tell them that I’m actually going to be an LPN they say, “Oh” in a disappointing tone. Oh hell to the no. I’ve worked my butt off to get this. I’m still going to be a nurse. I’ll always have opportunities to move up if I so please. I’m still important! hah  People need to get it together… some will never understand. Don’t make me feel less. I want to feel accomplished.
