    Word to the wise...Lawson nursing program is a JOKE. I heard this from many people but decided to give them the benefit-of-the-doubt & found out the hard way! I wish I would've listen! I'm not trying to influence anyone in any way!

    Why is the program a joke? I applied there, along with Wallace and Jeff State. Are you saying that if I don't get accepted into either of those, I shouldn't even think about Lawson??

    When I say joke..I mean the entire program needs to be restructured! From the dean to the secretary! I will say that there are a FEW good instructors but not many. I think I learned more from the clinical instructors than the classroom instructors! I have heard that Wallace is a great school & I was accepted there as well. I just wish I would have made that my first choice!

    Thx Jade B19!!! Just FYI if your degree plan changes and your advisor has changed you've been accepted I spoke with someone today on the bessemer campus. The letter were mailed today, and you should receive it by Wednesday.

    Hi all!! I received my acceptance letter from Lawson today for the LPN program and a regret letter from the RN program. Needless to say I was accepted into another RN program and am going with that one. I wish you all luck in your acceptance!!!

    Well, I was not accepted to either program b/c the school had 2003 as the year for me taking the compass test when I actually took it in 2008..I had to prove that I took it in 2008 which took 30 min...My points were 155 and I think the cut off was 165. I was told that I would be put on the waiting list as of 8/2/10. I had not heard anything yet. I was also told that additional letters were going to made to offer students on the waiting list a spot. Basically it's all about competition b/c now I have to wait to see if I can beat out others on the waiting list. I just hope I hear great news about this situation real soon. I heard the immunizations, uniforms, and etc are pretty pricey....Wish me luck!

    brighterfuture.... What campus did you apply on? It's very expensive. My uniform and shoes were $120.00. The background and drug screen is $74. I'm not really sure how much the shots are.
