Gateway CC LPN Spring 2014

  1. Has anyone been accepted to the Spring (Day or Evening) LPN cohort at GWCC? Are there any recent graduates out there who can describe their experiences? I decided to take the LPN route to save money. I am paying for school out of pocket and I REFUSE to take out any school loans. After the LPN program, I hope to transfer into Block 3 of the RN program at one of the community colleges.

    I had a great experience at Gateway. I did the LPN and then the RN program there. I would highly recommend it. The teachers were great, and I would do it again!

    Hey 2nd,

    I was accepted in to this upcoming (spring '14) LPN cohort . I'm in the evening how about you? Do you have your pre-reqs to do the RN transfer already completed? All in all I'm a little nervous about the program and I wish the info session was sooner than the 3rd!

    mmtorrez89 - Where can I find information about your blog? I would love to read it!

    maui_nurse - I am also in the evening cohort starting Spring 2014. Do you know how many people are in our class?

    mmtorrez89 - Thanks for the blog link! It was very interesting!!!! I'm thinking about creating a blog documenting my journey as well. I think it's a nice way to let others know what to expect. Thanks again!

    I have always been curious is LPN class the same as Block 1 and Block 2 in the RN program?

    I don't believe that the classes are the same; however the content is similar. Once you finish the LPN program (as long as you meet the requirements), you can enter in to Block 3 of the RN program.
