does anyone know how many people on average apply to the baptist LPN program and how many are accepted? i read somewhere that the classes are 60 people, but i've heard from people who attended that this is not correct -
im applying for the LPN program that begins in january and am worried that because im 26 and have had only a year of college courses will put me in the pile for non-admission - i realize that the requirements dont go beyond a high school diploma, but i know that a nearly 8 year gap in my education might seem a little strange to them - i did well in school and great on my ACT, and i think ill ace the NET exam, but im still concerned.
I didnt stop going to college because i didnt want
to go, i stopped going because i wasnt sure about where i wanted my education to lead, and now that i've been out working for the last 7 years, i have been able to have experiences that have led me to exactly what i want to do, and its nursing!!!!
I'm going to an open house at the school later this month, but any input that anyone can give me to just ease my mind and calm me down would be greatly appreciated!

Did they give you your "homework" for the break?? More abbreviations?? They aren't that bad, 25 questions. The Peds and OB is tough on some people-just be sure to read your stuff and do the homework pages they give you (easy points!). Hesi isn't too bad if you read and know the basics and don't stress about it! Most of the people in my class that had a hard time with it had major test anxiety and that can hurt you. Do the medspub as much as you can and practice with your NCLEX prep book. Also going through the process of elimination with your answers-what are you gonna do to save the patient?? The instructors aren't as hard on you towards the end, and they will do anything they can to help you if you need it and ask! It can get crazy towards the end as far as tests go (SR meds-do the packet and study it!) but just be prepared and you'll do fine-don't procrastinate or it will bite you in the end-literally! If you ever need help and want to private message me. Good luck and have a great break!
