ROP is the cheapest way to go, if you are taking LVN in North ROP you have to earn certain amount of points, take the entrance exam, take a LVN prep class than you take the acutal LVN class. The only issue i didn't like was that you have to have certain amount of points to take the course which i think is crazy if you want to just take course already.

jojo in Los Angeles, California said: ALSO. the private schools are at least 25K for LVN and the school in La Puente is 4500 total. You just need to pass high on the basic assessment testing to get in. You do not have a bill for years to come because you pay as you go.

Hi what the name of that school? Thank You

Does anyone have an opinion regarding the LVN program at CNI in Orange? Do they have a high NCLEX passing rate?

i've checked thier passing rates under california government and its not on the 90's. Plus with the economy not being so good your 25,000 will cost you 30 to 35,000 because of high percentage rate. Their are adults school for LVN for only 3,000 to 5,000. Be wise people do your research

Most if not all LVN-RN programs are offered on campus but there are some who offer a combination. I did most of my general education courses through West Coast University, Anaheim CA online and then you do the rest on campus especially when it is time to do clinical. It is very expensive as most private nursing programs are these days. It is a great program. Be careful some programs offer you all online courses then you take your two week clinical. These are very independent programs and you are basically on your own with no resourses other than a phone call for questions and CA is thinking about not accepting these schools (read it on the RN board website) so be careful what you start. Good luck and do lots of research before you pay for a program.

jojo in Los Angeles, California said: I just started an LVN program in La Puente, its a year long. After I complete that I have the option of the ladder program to become an RN. There are many hospitals that have programs where you can sign a 2 year contract with them to work as an lvn and they will have the program at their hospital for the RN a year long. Some you pay some you do not. There are only a couple of pre reqs after LVN i do beleive, if any.

Do you know what the wait is for the LVN? Prereqs? I'm just starting my search and had an eye opener at kaplan today. Thanks

Stay away from Kaplan aka Maric. Their classes and bad, they lack
educational ethics. That school is just bad, take it from me and
other former students that cannot find jobs in what we went to school
for.

How much does it cause you for that program? Also I'd already completed my pre-req. Do you have any idea how much will it cost me if I go to WCU for LVN-RN?

It is very fast paced, but most of the class at least passes the tests. Clinicls (on site) start after the sixth week. All and all I consider it a well organized school with infinate resources for those of us (me) who need extra help.

It is a very fast paced program. Each course is only 10 weeks so you have to keep up. The first 40 weeks equals your Associates Degree the second is your nursing concepts and there are many tests, but it is all worth it in the end.

There is no specific percentage that you qualify for. It is all on an individual basis and is based on your income and need. The rest you will have to eithr pay out of pocket or apply for a student loan, which is usually very low interest. The financial department at the school will talk to your first about it before you agree to the program. You have a choice whether you want to accept it or not. Good luck.

You would be surprised. We had many students in similar situations that qualified for help. It is more for the loans that they look at your credit history. Good luck.

pete in Fresno, California said: thanks everyone... i have been waiting for almost 2 years to get into an RN program here in fresno. i'm done with all my AA requirements all i need is the program but then it's just so hard to get into. i'm probably going to try to do the lvn program and then move my way up eventually to a practitioner. thanks to all. i live in fresno but then if there is a lvn program that is a year only then i'd be willing to relocate. anywhere close to santa ana would be nice. if you know of any please let me know. if there are any RN programs available it would be even better.

Hey I just found this website and im not sure if you checked fresno adult school for LVN there free too they just got a grant

When you say you can get a full loan are you talking
goverment student loan or private loan. I'm wondering
if you can get a student loan for these programs with
bad credit.

Madeline in Pomona, California said: Do not go to Summit Career College in Colton or Anaheim. They are on a provisional accreditation and they are filing bankruptcy. Also, they change the program on you in the middle. A lot of people are dropping because it is so unorganized. They also are very secretive. If you want to drop they say you have to speak with the Director of Nursing first and you need an appointment. They give you the run around just to drop which just adds more money to want you owe. They won't even give you your transcripts without paying for them. And if you call the school and inquire about the name of the Nursing Director they ask all types of questions before they give you the name. I was told it was someone name Mr. Smith..yeh right..they pulled that name out of the air. DO NOT GO TO THIS COLLEGE..THEY ARE A RIP OFF AND THE WHOLE PERSONNEL IS RUDE!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! SO If you go you are an idiot!

THIS PERSON IS SOO RIGHT ABOUT THIS SCHOOL, SUMMIT CAREER COLLEGE REALLY SUCKS!!! PLEASE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN LVN SCHOOL DON'T EVER THINK ABOUT THIS COLLEGE, THEY DON'T HELP OUT THE STUDENTS WHICH THEIR SUPPOSED TOO, THE STUDENTS ARE THE ONES WHO IS PAYING THEIR ASSES AND YET THEY STILL DONT GET IT TO THEIR EFFIN HEADS..WASSUP WITH THAT!! SOO, DONT GO TO THIS SCHOOL, YOU ARE JUST GOING TO REGRET IT, WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!!! GOOD LUCK TO YALL IF YOURE READING THIS.
