    Oh and I hope and pray that they have not changed editions because a friend of mine who just graduated gave me every single one of her books. What a blessing and I know it was by chance that we met.

    I am currently enrolled at CASPN, I take my last final for 2nd quarter tomorrow. This program is VERY intense. It has been the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. You have to really want to work hard and really want to be a nurse!! The best advice I can give anyone wanting to go to school at CASPN is to FOLLOW THE RULES!!! They are very strict and you will get dissmissed if you are not doing what you need to be doing! I've met alot of great people there and for the most part have had a great time. It's very fast paced though and if you fall behind it's nearly impossible to catch up, so if you are sure you want to do this I would try my hardest to not miss any classes and be ready to study EVERY night. I wanted to just work every other weekend but that was too much for me. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have

    I am a student at the school currently. I know the school has been good before, but this year it seems like there's a huge turnover of staff, administration, and teachers. There are good teachers, and a lot of school is what you make it, but things are being handled really sloppily. Also, they're requiring you to be a CNA before you come here. Which is even less reason to come if you're not already one. I would just head down the street and get in LLCC.

    Kreme, what seems to be the problem? Besides the high turnover ra te of staff, what is causing the program to go down hill? LLCC has a one year wait list for their RN program. Only handful of the pre reqs have to be done before one can apply, so the year on the waitlist could be spent finishing up pre reqs.

    The problem seems to be administration. It's somewhat unorganized. I'm sure every school has these problems and I every student body becomes disenchanted at some point. It just seems our class is getting hit hard this time around.
    Considering the cost of this LPN program, the fact that there aren't as many jobs for LPNs in hospitals and the ones there are don't pay much. The incentive for going to this program was the fact that you didn't have to be a CNA. There aren't really many advantages to this program anymore. I would wait for LLCC.
