Michele T. in Omaha, Nebraska said: Omaha is the leading center for medical reasearch in the US. Look up Creighton accelorated online.. University of Nebraska at Omaha UNMC Medical School. and Methodist college of Nursing. The Omaha cost of living is about 35-40% of the east or west coast. I am just starting in the nursing field myself and love it here. Good luck.

Hi Michele,

Im an LPN from chicago considering the same program. how do you like it so far?

is it smarter to go for lpn first, then go on to rn, or is it ok to go straight into an rn program (i am making a career change and want to know the best path to get quicker job placement and good knowledge of my field), thanks.

how hard to get job as LPN in nyc

Jay in Jackson Heights, New York

Hi- I will not have a high GPA for my LPN schooling. How hard is Helene Fuld to get into? From some, I hear it is fairly easy. Others tell me you have to beg to get in. I have a solid 3.0--barely. I am simply looking to become an RN.

I wanted to steer clear of CUNY colleges because that's a risk. They seem to require 3.6-4.0 GPAs and make you take more classes, then apply..and if you are even accepted..it looks like there is a wait list.

Has anyone been accepted into ANY Nursing program, in NYC, with a 3.2 GPA or less? If so, can you tell us where and if you recommend it?

There are more than a handful of "good" nursing schools in the NYC area. Are you looking for traditional (as in you go to class at a campus) or online?

Jay in Jackson Heights, New York said: Hello,

I would like an LPN-RN program. It can be BSN..or even an LPN-BSN. However, the only online program that I know of is Excelsior and it is NOT accepted in every state. The RN-BSN or RN-MSN programs are the ones that there seem to be no problems with when you complete them online.

Most schools, for an LPN, are not online ones..and if they are..there are restrictions. My ultimate goal is to earn my MSN from a school/state where I do not have limitations once I graduate.

I'm not picky @ all. The biggest thing that holds me back is the GPA situation. My overall GPA is barely a 3.0. My nursing school GPA is around a 3.25, but cumulative is what really hurts me.

My state tests are HIGH, but nursing school is competitive. I'll go anywhere that I can commute, so long as it means I can obtain my RN license...and I have a chance. I'm already going to an over-priced college in the ghetto, it can't get any worse than it is now. Thanks for replying. :)

Listen i am a graduate of excelsior, here in NYC, we have no problem, and even the states that is consider problems, fla, ca. and ga, the school is working with those states, DO NOT LISTEN TO EVERYTHING YOU HEAR, yes scruples, but the president of the college is working with those states, call the college for CORRECT INFORMATIONS.

VEEB(Vocational Extension Education Board) LPN Program in Uniondale, Long Island,NY. If you would like to get your LPN in 9 months try this school. You can google the schools address. I received my LPN from VEEB in the mid 90's. I passed my state license exam my first try. They are still in the same location (Uniondale) it maybe a 10 month program now. If you maintain a A or strong B average you get direct entrance into Helene Fuld College of Nursing in Manhattan 1 year RN program. That's how it was back then, call or e-mail to see if this information is currently valid.

VEEB is an LPN program in Uniondale, NY. I will be graduating in 5 weeks. The program is now an 11 month day program. If you are able to maintain an 85 average in all your courses you can articulate to Helene Fuld College in Manhattan for the LPN to RN program, but they would rather you have 1 year of nursing experience as an LPN first. My mother got her RN from their and says the program is intense, but doable.

An LPN to RN Transition course and an LPN to RN program are different.

An LPN to RN Transition course is a class that LPN take that will grant them 12 credits to enter an RN program.

LPN to RN Program is an RN curriculum that LPN's take to complete their degree.

Some schools require LPN to RN transition course &/or exam prior to entering(bridging) into their RN program.

The school is located in Poughkeepsie, n.y., it is called Boces of dutchess county, i gave this infor to another student and it might be closed, but as you know some students drop out, so call them, otherwise go the Rn route directly thru distance learning, but this is limited unless you are a paramedic. If you have to wait, then take the prerequisites at a traditional school while waiting , so that time is not lost.

Just sign up for bsn at a traditional school, or bsn with an online program, not sure what you are looking for, have you heard of excelsior or northeast tutoring services in nyc, let me know.

California transfer student in Roseville, California

I need to transfer my first year nursing credits from the RN program I was enrolled in until my clinical teacher failed me the third semester. I have one year complete but no school will take me with the failing grade I received, Is Excelsior really an option that will help me earn a Nursing degree, what are the limitations that come with the Excelsior degree, is it an option that will bring me success or is it a waste of time?

Getting the LPN first is better in my opinion… that way it is easier to advance and you already have a nursing degree. In NYC nursing schools are very competitive especial RN schools.. Having the LPN puts your foot in the door wayyyy faster than Coming into nursing with No license. I know this from experience

Have you looked into Achieve Test Prep? You should check them out. You can attend classes virtually or if you live near a campus attend in-person. Either way you are taught by RN's and everything I have read about them has been good. There is a forum on here, take a look at the comments. They use the credit by examination method, and so they work with you to pass the exams and get credit for the courses. You get the education you need, but it's a fast-track method. www.achievetestprep.com/info. Worth your time to check it out.

Great advice, I was wondering because I would like to be a nurse, but without any experience seems like a bad idea. As an lpn, you can do more.
