    First question would be how expensive is it? And then, how new is the program?

    Actually, I will be meeting with a representative next week.

    But I did find another private college with a LVN program for $24,000 something, almost $25,000. This will include the NCLEX exam, a laptop, a PDA with a listing of the drug medications, health screenings and other supplies (scrubs, etc.)

    Their LVN program is only 1 1/2 years old where their first class is on their 3rd term already.

    Unfortunately, I need to take the private nursing route because I irresponsibly ruined my GPA and have several withdrawals. The only way I can qualify for any ADN program through the community college is to go through a remediation plan which I found only one in Glendale. I would need to redo my 3 science courses with a B or better through this college. This still does not guarantee a slot but my former past failures in my academics does not count against me as long as I do well through this remediation plan.

    I realized that this may take me longer and no guarantees. At least with a LVN degree, I can earn more than my Patient Care Tech. job and gain experience while waiting to get into a LVN-RN bridge program.

    By the way, the other college I'm looking into is Stanbridge College.

    Thanks so much for your response and feedback.

    Take care,

    I don't know where you live but Citrus College in Glendora has an LVN program. I finished in July '07, am working as a hospice nurse while I continue on with my pre-reqs for the RN program. The cost for Citrus College was about $3500 for the year and you only have to qualify by being the top 40 students in a Introductory class. There is no waiting, no requirements, no high GPA needed. I will be ready to start the RN program in 2008, which Citrus College has just started this year. Good luck,

    That sounds like a perfect program for me, I wish Glendora wasn't so far away, it will be 300 miles a week just for school.
