Accepted to the LPN program in FL

  1. 0 I have just been accepted into the LPN program at Lake Tech, in Eustis FL. I have my associates degree, and have taken all prerequisites to the RN program except Microbiology and A&P 2, when I finish my LPN I plan on immediately doing the LPN-RN bridge at the local college. I have chosen to take this route because of scheduling. I can't wait to get started! Any advise on things I should brush up on before the start of the program?

    Hi! I go to Lake Tech right now, I love it! I'm in the same boat, I've finished all my RN pre-reqs and am going to bridge right over when I graduate.

    I'd start reading up on A&P, that's where most people have huge difficulties.

    Good luck and congrats!

    Hi ladies! I just finished the CNA program at Lake Tech this past month! I am trying to apply to get into the LPN program. How difficult was it to get accepted? Also, how hard was the TEAS test??

    The TEAS test was pretty difficult but I bought the TEAS study guide book and a sample from their website. That helped a lot!

    To get an interview into the LPN program, you only have to score the mean or higher of all the test takers. For my group the mean was only 50 something % so it was pretty easy in that regard.

    Good luck!

    @ makc88 , just keep studying your teas study guide and do the practice test, and you should do fine!

    1-how much time do you spend studying
    2-are clinical's as tough as everyone says they are
    3-does lake tech allow laptops in the classroom.
    4-are you allowed to have any colored stethoscope or does it have to be black?
    5-where you able to find white scrubs that are not completely see through?

    sorry didn't see these til now!

    What kind of stethoscope did you purchase for school? I bought a Littman Cardiology iii which I love!

    1-how much time do you spend studying: In varies, in the beginning during A&P A LOT! Several hours a day. After A&P just a few hours a week. But I am in the part time program.. I've heard full time does nothing but study

    2-are clinical's as tough as everyone says they are: not for me. I really enjoy clinicals and all my nurses have been excellent so far. It IS tough waking up at 5am or earlier and doing 12 hour shifts for free though

    3-does lake tech allow laptops in the classroom: yes! most of us bring in laptops or ipads to make notes during class

    4-are you allowed to have any colored stethoscope or does it have to be black? any color! Mine is pink

    5-where you able to find white scrubs that are not completely see through? I actually bought mine from Walmart. You are supposed to wear underwear that matches your skin color under them
