Night/Weekend LVN Programs in SoCal?

  1. 0 Hey everyone,
    I'm feeling really bummed out about trying to become a nurse! I was going to go to Chaffey, but I absolutely have to work full time and the only ft jobs that I can find that can actually support my rent/bill payments are during the day. Does anyone know of any night-time LVN programs around? Specifically in either Orange or Riverside counties, but any info is helpful. Thanks everyone for your help, I can't stop crying!

    I know you're trying to narrow your search to Orange and Riverside Counties, but there's a night and weekend LVN program in Los Angeles County.

    Casa Loma College (818)785-2726. It's expensive, but the NCLEX pass rate is somewhere around 84 percent. Good luck with whatever school you decide to attend.

    I attended Casa Loma and think highly of their program. They have more than one location & offer a night/weekend program. Best wishes.

    I also attended Casa Loma's LVN program last year (Van Nuys); however, I think poorly of their program. :spin:

    I don't see a Casa Loma program close to me, but there is Concord in Garden Grove and I set up a meeting next week to get more info. Of course they couldn't tell me the price of the program over the phone, but I guess most private tech schools don't. I really had my hopes of going to the community college, but I got so frustrated! What's nice about the private schools is they do the work for you, but I guess that's what you pay for. I just want to get into nursing REALLY bad and keep finding myself not being able to go to school during the day. I know California is a big state and we come from very different areas, but has anyone heard of a good program in OC or Riverside area? I know I have a lot of options for private schools, but I just wanted to see if anyone went to a program and thought they got a great education out of it or if it was full of people who didn't take it too seriously. Also, has anyone graduated from a private school and then went on to a University? Thank all of you so much for your advice, it's really helpful to me.

    When I was living in Southern California last year, Concorde Career Institute cost $21,000 for one year. Here in Texas, Concorde costs $18,500.

    Did you think you got a good education out of the program? Did you go during the evenings? How about anyone else, did you go to either campus and like it? Thanks everyone. :wink2:

    That's a strange question, as very few people exist who seriously like nursing school. Nursing school is an intense experience that can take it's toll on the physical, social, financial, and emotional aspects of your life. Don't select a school based on whether you think you'll like it. It is wiser to research the school's NCLEX pass rates and other objective data before making an informed decision. Good luck.
