Is there any body who went to Kaplan(Sacramento) for their LVN?? How worthy is it?

  1. Please help me out. I was planning to do my LVN through Kaplan (Sacramento). I was debating if it is a good decision going to this school?

    I'm in the same area...How much is Kaplan vs Unitek, if you don't mind my asking.
    charles jones is just under 20K --- I'm talking about for an LVN.

    WCC is the most expensive.

    Unitek is almost 40k vs 30k at Kaplan. By the way where is charles jones?

    Unitek is about 34k.

    I currently go to Kaplan San Diego for the LVN program and I would recommend it. It's a great program. and the tuition is around $34,000 for the 15 month program.

    I go to Kaplan north Hollywood, and was gonna transfer to sac. It's a great school and the DON is very nice. Great clinical sites with the last term at a hospital.

    But unitek is faster, right? Charles Jones is 10 months plus prereqs (they usually offer a 6 week prereq program once a year)

    Does anyone know how fast unitek and kaplan are and whether prereqs are included?

    In regards to Unitek Sacramento campus, their LVN program is 11 months. The prereqs costs $3,150 in which you have to pay out of pocket and is 2 weeks long for 6 prereqs courses. The total cost of the program is $34,000.

    Hey guys im in the same boat! I went to carrington and theysaid it was 45k, unitek is 34, kaplan is 30, caj is 20. I was going to do the bridge to rn after at carrington but they said theyll let u if your lvn program meet their requirements, so far they accept kaplan. Idk about caj but i really want to do caj because its much more cheaper! Has anyone been on the actual program at kaplan here? I want to know if they prepare you well for the nclex and the real job.

    I never went to Charles A jones but if you look at their pass rates they are AWEFUL. I should also mention that in a LVN program faster is not better. Your brain needs some time to absorb the information so you can begin to think critically. I went to Twin Rivers Adult School for $12,000 and they had great pass rates. During the course of the program we lost a teacher and I don't think they have completely recovered since then. I believe the program is on hold until they restructure it. But who knows it may be back on track now. Call and find out. Good luck.
