Ive been gathering info for awhile. Ive heard good things about hot springs, ar program. they have alot of nursing scholarships too. good things about morrilton community college. its 2 nights a week with clinicals every other weekend. Ive been told your lpn work counts toward your clinical hours. good things about beebe, ar program as well. Ive heard both good and bad about UALR program. I started out trying to get my lpn from baptist, HATED IT. Was sick like 2 of the 3mths i was there from being so stressed out. although ive been told they try to weed people out in that program but are not as crazy in the lpn-rn. Both baptist and UAM are known to be really hard. if u like a challenge-go for it. Hope that helps.
