I just got accepted to the LVN program at Career Point for the November 22nd, 2010 start date. I'm a little concerned about the price, it's $25,000 or so for the first year! That's an average of about $500 per credit hour, which is about 2 times as much as it is at San Antonio College, however there are no prerequisite classes that you have to complete to get in, anatomy and physiology and medical term. are all included in the program. So I guess it equals out? It'd take about 5 semesters at SAC, (2.5 years) and exactly 12 months at Career Point. I'm a little worried though, this program is accredited by the Texas Board of Nursing, but not the NLNAC, but I can still sit for the NCLEX-PN when I graduate. I'm worried about not being able to transfer to a community college or university to get an ADN or BSN after this. Gotta research that. Man, I'm babbling, I guess what I need is someone who's attended this program, or a nurse that has graduated from a comparable LVN program to let me know what's up. I know this college is for-profit, so they want my money, I get that, but I'm worried I'm not gonna get the education I need. Also, if you've gone here, I would like info about the clinical sites. Thanks!

After multiple threats of being sued by Career Point, I have decided that I no longer wish to offer advice to people who are considering attending. Please don't email me.
