There were several messages regarding Capital Area School of Nursing. In 2001 I graduated from there at the age of 53. It was a lifelong dream fulfilled. It is VERY intense and I seen lots of fellow students fail for a number of reasons. Basically, DON'T get behind in any subject. Also, focus on your studies NOT the inner turmoil between students and faculty. The clinicals were wonderful. If you are seeking a dream, it is not hard. Everyone looked at me funny (being the oldest) but again looked differently (and even asked for help) before we graduated. At this time I am disabled and not nursing but I miss it tremendously. My disability had nothing to do with nursing and I hope to return. Good Luck to everyone considering Nursing.
Hello everyone! I just graduated from CASPN Jan.25,2008 and I highly reccommend this school to anyone interested in becoming an LPN. The staff are wonderful and the clinicals were educational AND fun!
It is a very fast paced intense program but it can be done! I'm moving on in my studies in which I hope to obtain my masters one day and I feel my experience at CASPN was a wonderful place to begin this journey.
