I graduated from Lawson December 2009 LPN program. It definetely wasnt "easy". we had study groups, in class lectures, powerpoints and tegrity which is a program you can go to to listen to the in class lecture in case u were out. i felt as if i was well prepared after graduation. i passed the nclex first try. didnt even study for it! as far as instructors theres one particular teacher at the bessemer campus that is EXCELLENT (cant say her name per site regulations). she doesnt just read the powerpoints to the class, but she asks questions, have nursing games for us, examples to relate to, etc. shes very energetic and funny too! which makes her classes more interesting and enjoyable. all of her questions comes either from her powerpoints, or notes in class. she never tests on anything she hasnt discussed in class. unfortunately, not all instructors are like her.. anyways, my overall experience was good.
