    CMK has CPN is 64 hours, that means how many weeks. They were saying class is 12 hour week. yu think it is right. that means class is 5 and 1/2 week. that's right or not. how many hours lab per week. ?

    CPN 103 - Fundamentals is technically 64+96 hours but for some reason that class takes for 4 months (1/3 of whole program). As far as I could figure the reason they extended it because the initial program length of 40 weeks is not enough to have a 1 year program which is required by the state. Knowing that you are waived of that class means that you are saving 4 months :-) All the others classes go much much quicker.

    As far as I could understand, you will join the batch 4 in January (they start 09/10/2011).

    Did you check with them what will happen with CPN 102 - Mental Health which is the first subject? Double check with them if you should attend that class also.

    When clinicals start, it is 12 hours per week. At this point, we have 4 groups that have clinicals only once a week but for 12 hours (The days are different - for sure one group is on Mondays, one on Thursdays and the third is on Fridays - fourth one I dont know their schedule). There is only one group (mine) that has clinicals twice per week - 6 hours on Mondays & Fridays. What will happen on the 104 & 105 - I'll keep you posted :-)

    I have a question about their math requirements, I called the school but couldn't really get a straight answer. I noticed they stopped offering their math class and i think it was elementary algebra, their website has this on the requirements " College coursework in English and Math with a grade average of C or Higher. " does that mean I just need a college math or do I have to do college algebra?

    As far as I know, fr their math requirements as long as you have a 3 credit course that is either a gen ed math, college algebra or even higher it will work. And if you are a degree holder, math is waved.

    That's true. Future PN student can be waived of math & English if is a degree holder... As far as I know, the school is willing to accept CLEP tests (math & English)

    Hello

    I just signed up to allnurses and was searching the web for lpn programs when I came across this website. While going through it I found this link for cmk and was wondering if you (or someone) could update us on this school. My girlfriend and I are looking to go to a lpn school ,but are having trouble deciding on one. Cmk looks to be one of the cheaper priced private lpn school out there but I hesitate to go because they just started their lpn program in 2010. Claredon hills is the closer location for me and was wondering how it is from anyone currently attending the school. Any other info someone could share about this school would be great because most of these posts on this thread are a year old and alot of thing s can change in a years time. Thank you !

    If in regards to the LPN program for CMK Healthcare they are a new program, but they also are having their 6th batch starting the end of august. So even if they only have had a few years in education they sure have a lot of experience.

    They actually have moved to their new location which is a 40,000 sq ft location. Which will beholding their future RN program and other Associates degree programs.

    Thanks for the reply about cmk i appreciate it. I guess it makes sense that if they have a few batches going on in one year they have more experience than one would think due to being new. I think thats great that they are expanding ,and hopefully they will offer financial aid as well. Do you do to cmk or know anyone that is attending there? I guess I would really like to hear from actual students that are attending there LPN program. If anyone happens to see my post please repsond with any helpful info about the program and if they will be offering fafsa anytime soon.

    Thanks!
