    Has anyone gone through this program? How hard is the TABE test that is required? I don't see why that is needed when I already have a bachelors degree.

    If anyone has more info. on this program (that has attended it), I would greatly appreciate it. I know the classes are on the weekends and the cost of the program, I am looking for more detailed information (where you go for clinicals, what time the classes are at, how are you graded, and what is the student to teacher ratio)

    Thanks!

    Quote from magelan
    i went to cna class at cmk and it was great. now i'm planning to enroll in their lpn program in january 8 2011 in westmont campus. in my case, the good thing is that the classes will be held only on weekends

    the new thing is that now they have another more prerequirement - pharmacology course...it costs $700, and the class will be in october for 5 saturdays. terminology is also $700, and anatomy $1000. they accept transcripts from other schools but for people who don't have time to waste in community colleges, it's better to finish these 3 subjects in cmk 'cause you can finish all that in less than 3 months.

    clinicals on cna course was nice, teachers were ok. clinicals are in meadowbrook manor nursing home in bolingbrook.
    i checked into this school and not all of their classes are on the weekends, your clinicals are held during the week, but when i called, no one could tell me the times the clinicals would be at. i am becoming suspicious about this school

    Americare school has 600 dollors per credit and $600 per lab. Cmk has $325 per credit. Americare has AIT exam after every course, if you does not pass the Ati exam, you fail the course and Roll trasition for 5 weeks in the end. Cmk has no roll transition and no ATI exams after each course.

    I am the one of the 50 people that started the CMK LPN program on 03/26/2011.
    So far so good

    I'm pretty happy with this program. First subject was Mental Health and it ended somewhere in May. At this point, we are at middle of Nursing Fundamentals and the first clinical will start on Monday 07/18/2011 (Mental Health was without clinicals).

    Classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays 4-10 pm but clinicals will be during week. There are 2 options. Either to choose to have clinicals once a week (8 am - 8 pm) - either twice a week in the mornings. I've chosen the option Monday & Friday morning 'cause I work pm-s Mon-Fri.

    Clinicals will be held at 3 places: Meadowbrook Manor - Bolingbrook and in 2 other nursing homes in Naperville & Park Ridge (I don't know the names of the facilities but I'll find out - I've chosen Bolingbrook). I'll keep you posted how this will look like :-)

    The teacher is very dedicated, but the class is big though... 50 people... Some people failed mental health, but they proceeded conditionally to Fundamentals. If they also fail on Fundamentals - they will have to leave the program for good. If they pass, they will have to go again on Mental Health with the next batch that starts on 09/10/2011.

    Passing score is 78! And we have exams every Saturday but it is not so hard. Bad thing - sometimes there are too many chapters that are covered in one session.

    TABE test is easy - around 100 questions - mostly English and 24-25 from maths (sooo easy). I don't know if anyone failed on TABE but the only thing that hurts is these $50 for that test...
