jojo in Buena Park, California said: Hi Mona, this is where I went last year, I have my license now as an LVN. www.hlpae.org/index2.html I paid about 4500 for everything. The staff and teachers are B's but I just bit the bullet and now I have my license.

Hello. I was trying to access the link that you posted here, but it's not working anymore. Is there any way you can post it again? Looks like it was a typo error? Thank you.

I currently am an LVN working for the govt in a level 1 trauma center. When I graduated I always said I would never get stuck working in a nursing home or just working home health. There are jobs out there people that if you set your mind to you can get. I probably make around $50000 a year and the benefits are outstanding. I will never leave here because I can transfer to any other military facility in the world if I wanted. I do have a small PT job at an agency but i work there maybe 4 days a month if even that...so as an LVN my annual income will probably be close to $60-65k a year...and that's here in Texas that I hear has one of the lowest LVN pay rates in the US. Just wanted to contribute.

I am 51 years of age. I waited almost a life time to go into the nursing profession. Unfortunatley, my comunity college offers the LVN program but to enrolled on their list is every two years. Therefore, I will have to finish all my pre requisites and enrolled in the list in 2016 with no garantees to get into the program until the year 2018. I will be to old to lift patients. However, because of my late divorce and never earned a self income, I am in urgency of generating some money quick. Therefore, I did my research, quit my community college, and I am on my way to South West Ultrasound Institute in Beverly Hills. All I need is a GED, pass a test, pay $75.00 non-refundable, and write a 500 word essay.
The LVN program will be a 12 month program and $27,000.00 student loan etc. By the time my community college qualifies me in 2016-18 I will done paying off all my loans. However, I heard that LVN's will not longer be hireable. Hospital do not want to pay LVN's, they rather pay CNA and a RN to supervised CNA's. On the otherhand, I heard that universal healthcare will kick in in about two years therefore hospitals will decreased hospital RN's and increase LVN instead. To me all these sounds very controvercial. Can anybody give me some imput. I really like South West Institute. Graduate is 86% according to FAFSA. I really liked their school and staff.

By NorCal, the person is referring to northern California. Likewise, SoCal is southern California. Both are colloquial terms.

Veronica in Houston, Texas said: I am currently applying for the LVN program at my college and was wondering after completing the program are my chances to be accepted to the RN program higher? I know that its pretty hard to get into the RN program.

The chances of getting into the RN program are about the same but they may require less points for a Lvn than a person who is going for Basic track Nursing at Lonestar Montgomery College System.You still have to take the 30 core academic courses that you have to take for ADN, but you'll have a year under your belt.It's the same if you ask me just 1 more year of Nursing for ADN.

That is great! Is that typical in that area? Are there many SNFs in that area? I believe wages in Northern California are higher than most of the country. I am in the north bay area.

My heart goes out to you. Try some agencies. If worse comes to worse, volunteer at a place you'd like to work to get your foot in the door. Maybe volunteer 1 day a week as a nurse to see if you like it. If all goes well, maybe the supervisor could put in a word for you. Also check out some clinics in the area. Good luck and keep me posted.

ruby in Las Vegas, Nevada said: shame on u. lvn for 10 yrs. u should be making about 25 an hr.

I wish I could post my tax returns for the past 14 yrs that I've been an LVN Los Angeles. Last year $78,000...and that's typical. We've tremendous opportunities for financial stability in various areas of medicine...but you have to be a go-getter and seize opportunities when they present themselves and be confident in your skills as a NURSE and believe that YOU ARE worth it and DON'T SETTLE for anything less! I mean, honestly, I haven't made $17/hr since 1994 as a per-diem CNA at Northridge Hospital, with shift differential... But be willing to sacrifice bad hours and weekends and holidays for a while to get your foot in the RIGHT "DOORS", exude excellence and you'll become indespensible and they'll be begging you to work for them and asking you what salary you'll accept! At one time I remained per-diem with 4 companies at one time because the didn't want me to quit out right, so I stayed on as long as I could take it!
HH out here pays $30-35.... I get $35-50 depending on MD orders and location of pt.... I set my own rates and they accept them because I'M GREAT! And we all are! Let's boycott ALL low paylevel jobs and they'll have to pay more;-). But until then stay diligent, don't settle and most of all...keep the FAITH! It is possible... I wish ALL the GREAT and UNDERATED LVN's of the world much success and GREAT WEALTH! WE TRUELY DESERVE IT!!!!

loni-77 in Fresno, California

Hi everyone. I am in a Medical Assistant program and I don't really like it. I really, really want to become an RN or Physician Assistant. I live in Fresno, CA and the only school I can get into right away is the RN program at San Joaquin Valley College and the tuition for a 2 year RN program is about $60,000. ( I will not qualify to financial aid, so this will be a student loan)

I would like some advise whether this will be worth it or not. I am 33 and don't want to wait on the junior college RN lottery system. If I'm going to spend the next 18 months - 2 years on school, I'd rather go for the RN versus an LVN program. SJVC awards an AA degree in Nursing, then I can pursue the RN-BSN online after wards. I'm just at a point in my life where I want a real career and really want to focus on following my dreams in a field where I can help people. (I was laid off from a clerical admin position in June) So basically, is $60k too much for an AA in nursing? I really appreciate any feedback offered. Thanks to everyone!

Hello Loni 77,
I completely understand how you feel. I would say take the prereqs at another school and take the nursing classes at SJCC. Also look for scholarships and grants. I know it is expensive but you will be a nurse sooner than at the other schools. I am in the same situation. Please keep me posted on your decision. Good luck!

Hey Ruby,
I totally agree with you. They want LPN's to be a nurse for low pay and high level of skills. That's not right. We should boycott. Any LPN pay under $20/hr is an insult.

jodeanlynn in Milton, Florida said: My goal is to go to school for an LPN course and then go to school for Rn . What would stop me from being able to get a job at a hospital when they run the background check ? Nurses are in high demand here and I do not see how some traffic tickets and a bad check would stop you from becoming a nurse, but I was turned down for a CNA class by Agency for Workforce Innovation ,the 3 week class is offerred through a local hospital. I thought it would be good to have a job as a CNA to support myself while going to school. Help me !!!! Would it be a waste of my time going to school for this ? Will they offer me a job if I have things on my background check, that to me are minor ???

Unfortunately , it probably isnt the driving record or the bad check. pull your credit report. hiring managers look at scores as a measure of charicter. i know how unfair this is as i have been turned down for several jobs because of this . when you apply again , ask for a letter as to why they refused you employment. then contact the state and see what can be done. if you dont believe me call your insurance agency .they pull credit and will put you in a higher bracket if your credit is bad even if you are paying 6 months in advance.I guess now you cant discriminate because of race or religon so here we are , the next thing

You guys can try the biggest adult school in Ca at La Puente adult school, Ca. LVN test every week on Thursday and the program just take a year for full time and 18 month for part time. Last time when I go there, the LVN cost about 1800 only...very good deal....

Both the Psych Tech program and the LVN programs at Hacienda La Puente Adult School are 5,700.00 before books, uniforms, etc. The passing rates are decent, you are done in a year, and they take Pell Grants. My friend went to Citrus, and payed a lot less, and was done in a year for LVN, and they accepted Pell Grants as well as Cal Grants A and B.
