I would add that it is possible to move up in steps! Lots of people complete their LPN first, then go back for their RN (associate or bachelors) while working as an LPN. Depending on where you live and the job climate, you may get great placement with an associate RN, but in many places BSN is preferred, though you might still be considered if the employer agrees to hire on the basis of completing your BSN within a given time frame.
Moving up in this way may save a lot of money, but it might come at the cost of some more time and energy.
There are a lot of options in this field!
