lvndude in Santa Rosa, California said: i applied to the local JC but decided i didn't want to wait and went to a private school(12 months long). at the end of school i recieved a letter from the JC saying i was accepted to start their program. the start date was 4 months AFTER my graduation from the private school. at the JC it was an 18 month program. considering i was working 17 months full time by the time i would have graduated the JC program it was much cheaper to pay 26,000 for the private program. the first 12 months working i made 57,000 income. by the time the JC program graduated i was all ready working for 17 months. dont look at the immediate cost of school. you have to average it out a couple yeard to know if you are paying to much. pay more up front and save alot over time.

lvn dude, what type of place did you get your first job at. A friend told me they aren't really hiring lvn's anymore. I'm not sure whether I should do lvn because I'm afraid I can't find a job after. Any advice you have for me??

thanks for the encourgement!!

Jen, you probably wont be able to work in a hospital as an LVN the way things are changing but most LVNs work in long term care/snf facilities. the schools are cranking out huge numbers of students each year which means it is getting more difficult. I personaly dont know of any new grads that don't eventually get a job though . My classmates (in the Inland Empire)) all got hired within three months. Some weren't looking very hard. I went to NorCal and got hired at the first place I tried.(one mile from my house!!) My situation isn't typical but what is typical is that you will eventually get hired. I work at a LTC/SNF. We get wound vacs, post trauma patients(car wrecks, falls. work accidents...) One floor is post elective surgery patients.(knees,hips,...)Hospice patients that cant stay at home and some patients that have dementia(we baby sit them basicaly). some diabetics come to be stabilized and get back on track after neglecting their insulin. All kinds of stuff. Love it!!!

what think is that you all should check community college all around you they have great hours. and don't cost so much. from what i think why not be a pharmacy tech they earn the same amount as an LVN and you can study on your own the exam cost $ 130 it all depends on where you live.just type in www.ptcb.com or org and it should pop up well. good luck i would rather be in a bsn progam because those nurses get paid more

Hi, i wanted to ask you because iam applying for LVN program in CTC college, How hard is to be accepted into the program, because in my case, i already pass the hesi, they have my transcripts, and i passed the ACT test also, but it seems that they keep on giving excuses to be albe to have an interview and to be able to be in the meeting. What method do they use to choose the students for lVN program? thanks

Did you check out the financial support they offered? Do you know what the specifics are in qualifying for grants?

Thanks!

I'm looking into LVN programs. I'm leaning more towards trade schools. I know they cost more but since I can make about 20,000 more a year then being a CNA it's worth not waiting 2 or 3 yrs on a waiting list at a JC.
Has anyone experienced it being harder to find a job if you went to a trade school or any other bad experiences? and Also any tips on which school I school go to? I want to make sure my LVN is transferable if I ever decide to go for RN.
Oh and anybody know of any part time courses?

It doesn't matter where you go for LVN school. If you go to an 18 month program at a local college or a 12 month program at a trade school(like i did) you will get one year toward RN when you start the LVN to RN bridge program at any California college. I checked into 4 year universities as well as 2 year junior colleges and it is the same. I am taking gen ed classes at a Junior college to get into a BSN program. By the way, I almost went to an LVN program at a Sac trade school but decided to go for one in Socal instead. What school are you looking at?

I have never heard of anyone not being hired because they went to a Trade school verses a College. I know many LVNs that chose that route. They just care if you passed the NCLEX.

I was looking at a few different schools. How long was the LVN course you took? Was it a lot of homework too? I'm just trying to figure out if I can work and go to school full time at the same time. I heard once it was like 8 8hrs of home work a night.

My course was 12 months and that included all the pre-reqs. It was very intense. Of about 30 people that started only 12 of us graduated. A good program is Not easy for sure. The up side is we all passed the NCLEX first try. I am a good student and I couldn't have worked and done well. There were three grads that worked part time and made it through. they worked fri nite/sat through sunday nite alot of hours easch day. Some schools have part time/nite classes but that adds many months to your program. IF it works for you that would be a way to go. We had several students transfer over to full time after months of part time. I don't know if all programs are as challenging as the one I was in. My school also made major changes to the format they use for teaching after I graduated. I am guessing fewer people are failing out. One thing though; LVN school is for real and you have to apply yourself to pass. That is why you get one year credit toward RN/BSN. It is not somthing the average person passes just by showing up to class. IF you can go to school without working do that. If you are able to study without working you will get a much better education compared to someone that works even though you both may pass the program and the NCLEX. It will make you the better nurse(usually).

I think it will be better for you to go to any community college or trade school, because you will have to take some prerequisite classes before you get in the actual lvn program. That gives you a chance to get a picture and feel of what you will be getting into. So just check around your area for community schools that offer the LVN program.

I decided to spend the extra money and attend Kaplan College because I have been on the wait list at my local community college for 2 years. That is the wait list for the lottery system! My first choice would have been community college but I can't afford to wait any longer. My cousin was the director of nurses at a local hospital for a number of years and she says that it doesn't matter where you attended school. They look at grades and performance.

Concorde in San Bernadino. I moved down just to attend that school and then left after graduating. It was 8 hours a day of lecture or clinicals whch meant ALOT of studying at night and weekends. The director of nursing at my facility rarely asks anyone where they went to school and never about grades. If you passed the NCLEX that is what they are looking for. Passing that test makes all LVNs equal starting out and gives everyone an equal chance to prove themselves.

Thanks lvndude! I have a 2yr old and another one on the way :) so I can't relocate for now. Is anyone familiar with www.gurnick.edu/ @ concord? it the closest one to me. I can't find a passing rate on this school though.

I found this one but it says *pending BVNPT approval and no passing rate as well so don't know...

www.americancollegeofnursing.com/index.php

There are actually some schools listed on the bvnpt website that are no longer in business here in vallejo. I managed to check some old reviews of the schools that went out of business so it is kind of scary to think that you may be going to that kind of school. Thanks!

don't forget that when a school has a certain NCLEX passing rate that doesn't mean that percentage of their students passed. It means that percentage of the students that didn't fail out of school passed the NCLEX. In my class about 30 started, 12 of us graduated and over 90 percent of us 12 passed the NCLEX.(i think one failed the first test) The percentage of the students that start the class and then go on to pass school and the NCLEX can be quit low.

No, we go Napa nursing, Veterans home, in summer Queen of the valley our teacher said that because hospitals are not using LVN she has hard time finding hospitals willing to have us there. Good luck and keep me posted if you need any information. I'll be around the college taking other classes after I finish the program.

The total cost I paid was just over $9,000 dollars, that is including books and 3 days of clinicals.

cd_egor are you sure it was only two days of clinicals? Our school gave us 800 hours of clinicals which is required by the state of California. (might be 100 hours over the requirement)

Austin R in Santa Ana, California said: I graduated from North Orange County ROP December 2008. It's very hard work, waking up super early in the morning during clinical days, and having multiple projects at once, but it was well worth it. They did a very good job preparing us for the NCLEX. So far, everyone in our class has passed. It's a very good program. Most hospitals around that area actually prefer LVNs who graduated from North Orange County ROP because this school has very high standards.

how do i find the lvn program through them

Wow! Sorry about that post. I re-read it five minutes after posting it and realized how negative it was. If you graduate LVN school you for sure have the potential to do well on the NCLEX and if you pass the NCLEX you for sure have what it takes to not only get a job but to be a good nurse as well.

i would go to a community college it would be alot cheaper than going to a trade school but before u decide make an appointment at valley community college and talk to a counselor about your options if you meet with someone from a trade school make sure you go home and think about it and do your research on that school before you sign up

Umm. I apologize for being rude but.. you are making a committment to a school and there are questions you have not yet had answered? Why would you come here and get that information second or third hand online when all you need to do is call the school or if already getting ready to start as you said, just ask your student rep or anyone working there? Why would you not ask those questions before committing to a school?

If anyone is considering a local school, dont waste time going online and asking. You don't know if the information you are getting is correct when you do that. Instead, Walk into the school and get the inormation straight from the school. Pick up some brochures...

Somtimes my facility hires new grads and they wind up getting fired before their probation period is over. Usually it is a lack of critical thinking skills and the inability to prioritize tasks. They appear to lack common sense in certain situations. When I read posts like the above I worry for the poster in their new career.

Back when Unitek was about to start their very first class (LVN)in Sacramento, I tested and then paid my deposit and registered. I went to the school several times after that just to hang out and talk to people. I developed a bad feeling about the school and wound up getting my $2500 deposit back. They did not seem prepared or staffed well enough to be teaching a truly professional nursing class. I went elsewhere and every now and then I see comments that support my decision to dump Unitek.

I can answer her/his questions. I just finish the program, and I believe that
some times they don't like to give a clear answer because they like to be in charge over the students especially in this program. The director she is the one who makes the schedule, but the classes are always going to be Thursday and Friday no matter what, clinical and lecture including summer. For the clinical part either you go in the morning or afternoon as well at the end of the program for preceptorship. You would have breaks of 1 or 2 two weeks on Holydays
