    Hello i am attempting to enroll with Mcfatter for the lpn program, the next class starts in April. I have completed all requirements, the secretary at the medical office told me they start sending out letters one month prior to the start date. I like to think i am ahead but i am sure it is a wl, but the counselor did inoform me seats where avail and its first come first serve basis. Has anyone already gone through Mcfatter for the lpn. Thanks
    Yes it is first come, first served. And there is no wait list. You're pretty early. I'm sure you got in.

    Hi thank you for responding. Are you presently attending Mcfatter, and if so how are the classes? Anything i should do as far as getting familiar with the program (ie; books AP)? How intense are the classes?

    Thanks

    I applied to mcfatter but didn't get in. I applied to late. So I went and applied to their sister school Atlantic tech. They have 2 sister schools. So I applied to 2 out of the 3 schools. Just in case I got a rejection. Lol I just started in December.

    I like it! Tomorrow starts clinical so we'll be going to the nursing home doing CNA type work. Core is one class. They call it core. Just the basics. Infection control, HIPAA, abbreviation, etc. it's a 90 he course.

    I'm at Atlantic currently and I like it! I tried to get into mcfatter but didn't get in. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise because I really like this school. I just started in December and already have been in clinical for a couple weeks now. The teachers really want to see you succeed and they do a good job of teaching.

    The classes aren't hard, just a lot to know in such little time. Currently, I have clinicals twice a week. Wednesdays and Fridays. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, are spent in class either taking tests, or listening to lecture. We usually have tests twice a week. Mostly Mondays and Thursdays. It's usually 2 chapters each test, but sometimes it can be 3. This week we have a test Tuesday and Thursday. So that means there's not much time between to study! That's what I mean by its so much in such little time.

    Starting in April there will be 4 tests a week! Yikes!

    In clinical, we're just doing bed baths and vitals. Nothing major. Just on Friday, we started adding care plans. And learning how to chart. So we'll be doing more soon. I'm assuming that's all we'll be doing pretty much until April when we move into Block 2. Then I believe we can pass meds. Because we'll be doing pharmacology.

    Hi everyone! Sorry for not responding! I've been super busy! I attend mcfatter currently in block one. Love it! If u get in April u have the same block one teacher. April will be her last class. She's awesome she's an army nurse a tough cookie but def love her! Core is 3 weeks.. 22 tests are done during core which we do at home! We only go in once a week during the 3 week period. I started in November and our first clinical Was right around the corner! We go to clinical Mondays and Thursdays from 8-1 after core we start fundamentals 1 which is sort of hard because its more of a what would u do type of section. U know, the questions that have 4 right answers but only ONE correct answer lol. After fundamentals comes BSF body structure function which is basically 2 college semester of anatomy squeezed into 3 weeks. It was tough but easier than I thought. You'll be amazed how much u learn! We finished BSF now were finishing up fundamentals 2. After fundamentals 2 we have growth and development which only consists of about 3 tests then we move to block 2 as soon as we come back from spring break. I love it we go to school Monday- Friday 8-230 ( usually get out around 145) and of course if we have clinical we go Monday and Thursday. So far the program has been great ive met awesome new friends. It's alot of work and cramming but it's worth it. I'm getting by with 70s but that's good for Me. My teacher said if u get an 80 in nursing school it's amazing lol if u are eligible for financial aid THEY DO NOT PAY FOR BOOKS SUPPLIES OR UNIFORMS! At the end of the program u will get a left over check which will reimburse u with what you've spent and a little extra if u got books for cheap. I've used amazon mostly and have had great deals. I can't tell u which books you'll need because they possibly might change them. If uve never had anatomy before like myself I suggest u find a book or something and brush up on it. U dont come to class in uniform until u finish core. U also don't need stethoscopes until the END of BSF when u do vital signs. Hope this helps u if u plan on going to mcfatter. Ill try to check this more often for more questions I just always forget!

    Also I forgot to add. The only frustrating thing about the program is we go over things we won't need while still trying to study for the things we do. For example lets say Monday we lecture about digestive Tuesday well have a test on urinary and start studying skeletal then Wednesday we start studying cardiovascular then Thursday we take our digestive test and learn about muscular then Friday we take out skeletal. Get it? Kind of confusing lol but that's why it's tough because u have one system In ur head but ur taking 2 other different system tests
