    Yeah, it is rather large. But I know it will start to thin out as we go.

    Hello my fellow ct tech lpn student,
    I know I've been away for a while but we are on spring vacation this week so I have some free time. How is everything going for you guys? We (hartford) started our clinicals from March 15th. It is really good to get the hands on experiences. I am already a CNA, but I work in an assisted living. Where my clinical is, is totally a different environment than what I am used to. The type of residents are different, but I truely enjoy it.

    I received it however, it wouldnt let me reply But anyway, my question was about financial aid. How did that work for you? I understand this program is really expensive. Were they helpful? I had a financial aid appt and now I have to re-think attending this program

    Yeah it is very expensive. I was able to go through Sallie Mae for a loan that I don't have to worry about until 6 months after I graduate, so by then I will most likely have a job in the field making decent money. I pay 25 bucks a month while in school which isn't too bad. I know it will be a hassle paying back the tuition, but I know somehow I will get it done - I'm not too worried.

    I hope you can work it out with financial aid, were you able to qualify for any grants or Sallie Mae student loans?

    Yes, It is very expensive. Yes I did get approved for the loans however, its super expensive in my opinion. My fear is spending all that money and coming out of the program without a job which is possible because I know someone in that position and being stuck with all that debt. I dont qualify for financial aid just loans which is crazy. I have no idea... I'm looking into RN programs and CC that offer the RN program before I make a decision. This is tough

    Yeah, it is definitely an expensive, and tough program.
    The good news is, you pay more but it's just a year long program, as opposed to 2 years for a CC or 4 year BSN that would cost A LOT more than Lincoln. In several cases, LPNs make just a little less than RNs. I tried for years to get into a program at a community college, and was just put on waiting lists which I got so sick of....so I just decided to take a risk, and do the program at Lincoln. Lincoln was definitely not my first choice, nor was doing an LPN program, I wanted either a Radiology program, or RN program and even BSN programs at Central and UHart. I tried to get in several programs but was either put on waiting lists, or had to jump through hoops and obstacles which I really didn't have time for. Lincoln was the one program that there were no obstacles, just a hefty price tag!

    From what I understand, Lincoln definitely helps you find a job. Of course there is no guarantee. Not sure what program your buddy went through that is having trouble finding a job, but there are definitely jobs out there. It's a plus to have connections in the field.

    Don't give up on the program, but if you don't feel comfortable having all that debt, then try a CC program to see if you can get in. You'll have to wait until next year though, as most deadlines were Feb 2011. Good luck with whatever you do.

    Hello Everyone attending the state LPN Program How is it going? I'm attending the program at Bullard Havens and the amount of work that we get it's ridiculous. We get about 3-4 quizzes a week and an overload of HW. I started clinicals in March and so far so good. This week we have a cumalitive exam on Human Biology on 16 chapters and it's indeed very overwhelming for all the students. Hope everyone is doing well, hope to hear from you all soon

    ****Can't wait till June 16th the end of the first semester!!!

    Hey YMBX,
    yes it is crunch time now so everything is becoming a little tough. I am at the Prince tech school and this week alone we have three exams, two which are the last bio exams. im just trying to get through the the bio because if you dont pass bio with a 75 or higher, you fail out the program. is it the same at your school?
