Hello, I'm attending Lincoln Tech in Hamden. I've started in Fall 08. It's true very intense during the day program but doable. I'm averaging out an 87 in A&P and 85 in Funds. Just know when you begin, you need to study everyday and not take one day for granted. Our class started with 60 and down to 54 and we have 3 weeks left in the first module.

Are the night classes spread out over a longer period of time? Is it as expensive as these boards say it is? Can you "pay as you go?"
Dec 22, '08
as far as i know you have to apply for there financing programs if you don't have enough for your FAFSA (and you wont). The payment plans all depend some are based on credit some are not. The extra that FAFSA doesn't cover enters a payment plan: some earning interest some not earning interest but you must pay every month. It is strict and missing payments longer than 60 days is an automatic boot from the program.
As for nights, they are longer 22 months vice day 15 months. However, it is slower pace and you study probably 2 chapters a day vice 4 to 5. It is expensive at $30k plus. It all depends on your situation.
Please check on evening programs as far as externship/clinicals. You may be doing night classes but clinicals could be in the mornings, so verify with them.

Finally started classes today. 64 students! It seems like ALOT. For those who told me it was mostly self teaching...your right, they tell us to read and do the worksheets before they do that chapter in class. It was very ovewhelming! But I keep myself concentrated and my nose in the booK!

Can you keep us updated regularly? It will help those of us who aren't sure which school to go to. Thanks.

Hi everyone! I am new to allnurses.com and so far it has been so beneficial and helpful to me! I am looking into going to nursing school.. I was wondering if someone could explain to me more about the Lincoln Tech program? They do not have too much information on their website, and when I called to ask them for information, they never sent me anything!! How did you go about applying? What do you need for admission? When do the programs start? I think they have 3 different times? If anyone could help me out a little, I would really appreciate it!! Thanks so much! Good luck to you guys who are in the program now! And to those who are applying!! :wink2:

There is some general info on these boards about Lincoln Tech - mostly that it is extremely expensive and someone also said that alot of it is self-taught. Hopefully someone who is in the program now will give us some good info!
