bebe in Bronx, New York said: College Network is not a school.....It's a publishing company that supplies study materials.

I know...I have a BA in another field... Got into Indiana state nursing program. Using college network books to take my 2 pre requisites... Through excelsior college. For lvns who already have a college degree...ec is good. But in California you cannot take the 2 yr RN online only the BA.

Those none college programs will most likely be BOCES type of programs. Their cost will range anywhere from 10-20 grand. And I'm not too sure of the kind of education and training you'll get for your money.

If you go online and research LPN schools, you'll get a list of places and contact info. Keep a breast on info and deadlines..you'll find what you're looking for!

Hey guys here is a link that shows all the LPN schools in NY state and it shows the passing rates of the NCLEX-PN of each school:

www.op.nysed.gov/prof/nurse/nurseprogs-lpn.htm

I think if you want the quickest education possible going to a boces school like I'm doing is the way to go. The boces schools have a 1 year program and a 2 yr program, which is still even shorter than going to a community college or private college because you don't have to wait and see if the class you need that particular semester or not in my school you are in and you know that you will have all the classes you need and not be wait listed.

punix0583 in Horseheads, New York said: Do you want to go to rn school instead, let me know.

My sister had a similar problem her mother paid for her to tke the review 3 times with vital signs and healthcare express so when she goes back in the following semester she would have a jump start. After that there was no turning back she passed all her nursing classes, passed her boards and now working as an LPN and planning to start her RN school in the fall. Do not give up you may want to take that route go to review classes even though you are not taking the boards it worked. It is really the same info you get on LPN exams. They also have practice sessions in clinical skills. Check them out. One eight hundred six seven one nine five eight nine

Check this map of approved LPN programs in each state: nurseslink.org/lpn-schools-us-map/

If the program you are considering is not on the list then it might not be approved by the New York state board of nursing. There is no point wasting your time completing a non-approved program as your credentials won't be honored.

Hey everybody, I thank you for your wonderful insite. A few years ago give or take 10 years a go I went to BMCC to major in nursing. I did well in my pre classes, then I dropped out cause i was paying for it myself. So I go a job in finance and life was great. Well you know where that is today. So I had to find a job so I can keep aroof over my head. Thus far I am working private doing homecare which i am thankful for. Now I am 40 and scared as hell because i want to do the LPN Program and I am lost. I went to BMCC and they told me i need to contact Kingsborough and try for their program because it been too long since i was in school. I guess am angry at myself for stopping the process and now I have to take 50 million entrance exam to start all over again. I am gonna look into many of the program you guys were talking about. I guess fear is gripping me when i think of all those test. Thank you guys for your help and for listening. Now I have to go do all these reseach in regards to my options

Girl, i just turned 46 and i too was in BMCC many moons ago. I was told the credits i had in the 80's was nothing to carry over so i would have to take the entrance tests again. I too was in finance and the going was good, however, i am getting laid off in December and am mad as hell for not pursuing my education when i should.

So i sucked it up = studied from a GED book and went and sat all three test - passed them and am grateful but now i am told i have to register for Spring 2012. So just take your time - you are still young, if you stay focused on your studies in 2yrs you will have your RN - go do it girl =

Is LPN really worth it anymore. I seem to read so many posts of people saying LPN's are being phased out. www.nursing-classes.info/category/registered-nurse/

Not as far as i am aware. Lpn is a starting point into the nursing world, if one is unable to attend a 2 yr. program without working. then from there move on to BSN, this is the new trend. Work in a hosp. if you can, easily to get hired. Now, having said that, the politicians are pushing to phase out lpns, they have been trying for years, since the 80s, now with the economy they are gaining ground in 28 states, it is not official, so what they are doing is only hiring bsn in some states, that is what is happening.

A.V.M in Bronx, New York said: 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 am on there website and don't see anything about people who want to become an lpn. Can u help me

Swedish Institute offers RN program. Do NOT waste your time and go to LTI to be a LPN, the instructors can't teach. The tuition at Swedish is the same, and u get a degree. The facility is new. ASA in Brooklyn just started a RN pgm.
