National Medical Academy

  1. Has anyone ever heard of National Medical Academy based in Riverdale Ga. I live in Michigan and I've been hearing alot about this school I was told that they offered lpn certificates that only to took one year to complete. But that wasn't what sold me I was also told that the school offered LPN to Rn courses that only took 9 months to complete. Considering I'm already a Lpn I decided to check it out. I went to the school which is located in a church here in mich. I wasn't able to speak to anyone because you had to have an appt. So I basically want to know if any of my GA peaches can give me any insight on this school since its based out Ga. One more thing cash only is the method of payment they havent been approved to accept financial aid etc. Sounds to good to be true.

    I cant tell you about Mich, but here in GA this is a Medical Asst school, and that is it. I would be very very very careful there are tons of schools like this that are not accredited.

    If you're relocating to GA, you may want to check out Georgia Perimeter College. They have a LPN to RN bridge program. It is intense, takes approximately 12 mos to complete, but is affordable and accepts financial aid and multiple forms of payment. The next session starts in June so you may want to look into it ASAP. The website is www.gpc.edu.

    Good luck.

    I'm not at home so Ican't do a real search, but I think this is one of the programs, that takes your money and then "helps" you do something you could have done for yourself. They have "classes" to "help" you pass the Excelsior college program. Their bio states the are afficliated with multiple schools. The problem is that there were a bunch of programs like that that popped up in the Atlanta area.

    No matter what, make sure you do your homework before choosing any school like this. There are other options, just make sure you check them all out.
