Hi there!! I was looking up the possibilities of getting an LPN in CT. My options seem to boil down to this:
- Go to a Private technical college, and spend $22,000-$30,000.
- Avoid NETI (now called Lincoln Technical??) like the plague- what a lot of horrible things I read about it, here!
- Go to a state-run course, for about $3,800 or so.
Of course, when I called a number given on one of the sites to find out about the entrance examinations, I found out that there would be no new classes until August of 2008 (1.3 years away?!?!?!!!) and that I couldn't even find out anything about the tests until September of 2007, and to call back then! HUH?????
So, I have a few questions for you clever, experienced, kind folk.
If I do the PRIVATE technical college route, which ones can you recommend? I live in NW CT, near the Avon area, and I'm not too keen on driving over an hour just to get to classes.
Either way, what can I do to prepare myself for this entrance exam? What is it? What classes can I take? I'm about 20 years away from my last high school classes, and college is but a fuzzy memory.
Is there any way to get the entrance examination done sooner?
How do I work it so that I don't take 3-1/2 years for a 2 year certificate?? What is this craziness??
[banana]What do you guys suggest? Thanks!![/banana]

I don't think there's any way I'm going to be paying for the private technical college, it's just way too crazy expensive.
I'm thinking I may as well try and take basic courses now, and see what I can get out of the way before I take that exam. At this rate, maybe I ought to go for the RN! Good grief!
P.S., I'm sorry for your troubles with still having to pay off the loan. OUCH!!
