This paper details the transition from LPN to RN based on the obstacles and challenges facing an adult student. Issues are broken down into personal, academic and professional. Personal issues are then broken down further into financial, childcare and marital issues.

From the Paper:

"Transitioning from an LPN to an RN is usually a progression taken on by an LPN who has been working in the industry for a number of years wishing to make a change. As an adult student, there are a number of concerns and issues that normally do not affect younger students coming out of high school. The needs of the adult student are different than the traditional student seeking a degree following high school. Dianne Bitritto, a frequent contributor to the National Student Nursing Association, states "the demands are numerous on nursing students in their 30s, 40s or beyond..." Ms. Bitritto understands this as she is currently an adult nursing student, commenting on the challenges not usually facing younger students, such as work and family."
