1. Hi! I am in Missouri also, and possibly looking into an LPN program too. Just wondering what area in MO you are from, if you don't mind telling everyone! I am currently going to MO Western in St. Joseph, and looking into the LPN program at Northland Career Center in Platte City, north of KC.

    Good luck!

    I'm from central Missouri. I'm trying to get into the Nicholas Career Center LPN program in Jefferson City. I was supposed to find out this week if I passed my test but everyone was sick there at the school so they didn't get the scores sent out. I will find out next week for sure though!!!! Of course, passing the test doesn't mean I get in. I still have to have an interview with the program director and get my background test results back (I'm totally sure I passed that!)... Anywho, I think I have talked with you before back in Nov. or Dec.... Maybe I'm remembering wrong. So, you want to be a LPN too? That's cool I really want to go for my RN but I don't have the time or the money as of right now. I'm a married mom with two kids in the process of trying to sale my house. I hope I can move to JC before school starts (if I get in that is!). The program begins in Aug. It's a 1 year one and will include the I.V. certification program too I think Well, Talk to you soon!

    Hello again! Actually I am currently enrolled in an RN program. I am in my last semester of prereq's right now, but struggling to get my GPA up so I will get accepted! I did really, really bad about 11 years ago in college, so I am trying to fix that now. If I don't get in I am looking into the LPN program near where I live, and later bridge over to the RN. But like you, I have three children, ages 8,5,and 2, and it's really hard doing everything. But I really do love being in school, it makes me feel good about myself. I am finally doing something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I won't find out till March if I got in, so that is killing me!

    Good luck to you!
