Thanks. I heard Helene Fulde nearly makes you beg to enter their school. How are they about GPA? I have asked around..I only have a 3.0, so I am quite nervous. I just simply HATE the college I am at now. It's very racist...a lot of drama...and in a bad area. I've got to get out.

Christine in Jamaica, New York said: Does anyone no of a lpn Coures in new york that is free. that starts in the fall.

Hi Chris, I know as a fact of two different ways that you could get into free lpn programs. One is through the Health and Hospital corporation of New York. Go to their web site, go to nursing opportunities and you will see the information. The other option is through the NYC Department of Labor. You have to go to your closest labor department and find out about their career one Program. They are very helpfull. They will instruct you in what to do. As a matter of fact, you do not have to be unemployed to qualify for this program. I hope that this information could be usefull to you and others. A.V.M.

I hope somebody can help me. I graduated from a medical assisting school about 2years ago and I quickly found out it was a waste of time/money. Im now looking into the lpn course. What would be the best way to go about attending a LPN school and is it even worth it because im already a medical assistant.

Wait a sec... You are already a MA and they want you to go through the MA program? This sounds like a ploy to get more money out of you. If you want to be an LPN go find an LPN program. Study your math first. Find out if you can retake the test. It is not necessary to go though an MA program first, ESPECIALLY if you are already one! Ridiculous! Don't do it! Google the NY State board of nursing to find an LPN program.

Mandl School you mean? It doesn't even have a nursing program. They have a program for a nursing aide, but that definitely is not a nurse.

Good Luck with that! They aren't even hiring American citizens right now. I don't think it was a very wise move to come over here. There are thousands of American citizens with their advanced Nursing degrees and 10+ years of experience who have been applying/searching for a job ALL year long.
I would probably go back to your homeland, because at least you have family there who can help support you. I think everyone in the USA is downsizing and starting to rent and stuff with their families. It's the only way to survive through this terrible depression.

I saw ur comment, I just called the school no one answered so I left a message. Someone posted that the school is half hour from G C, do u have to take any other transport when u get off the train? What's the cost of their program? I want to get this lpn program started.

Boces is located in Poughkeepsie, n.y. You have to take the Metro North Hudson line and then a bus, or cab. the school will give you more info. Regarding the bronx, take the train to grand central, then hudson line, when you attend school you will buy a student ticket = discount when you show documentation (ID). Send me a private email, i cannot put tel. #s here.

If you are coming from GC in NYC, it will be about an hour and a half to get to the Poughkeepsie train station,then the best bet would be to take a taxi to the school, it will cost about $7.00 one way. There are no buses that go to Dutchess Boces CTI where the lpn program is, the program is about $9500.00 not including text books which will be about $300-400 depending on if you get new or used,plus uniform, CPR certification, and some type of kit we are required to get through the school, which altogether costs about $100. The program is either part time or full time, starting in Sept and Jan. You have to apply, get references, pay a fee, take the TEAS, they will send you paper on whether you got into full or part time. When I took my test the lady in charge of the program told us there might be a small waiting list, but not anywhere as long as it would be for a college LPN waiting list, so don't be discouraged from applying. If at all possible you might want to go in person instead of waiting for them to send you an application. If you have any more questions let me know.

If possible the school has pell grant, and loans to help pay the tuition.

I've been looking into LPN programs in the Albany area. Maria College being one of them along with Mildred Elley, Samaritan, BOCES, and Columbia Greene. Are you familiar with any of these schools and if so which ones would you recommend? I'm also debating if I should just go to be an RN? Torn between people's input and advice...need advice from those who have been working in the field and know what's out there and the best choice.
Thank you

Years ago i would say go for your RN, now i am not so sure. Nursing homes are hiring lpns for med pass NOT RNs. Instead of rn, should you go in that direction, i would suggest BSN, that is the current trend, and msn, directly after along with acls and pals. Then you have to have the mind set to relocate. Now if you start out as an aide in a hosp., you have a better chance of getting into an rn position at my location right now. Boces have a fast tract 9 mos. program, and if you have some credits under your belt, it will be a piece of cake, that is the best info, i have now. Plus someone on this forum states that they are hiring baby nurses (peds> in canada) Good luck
