CMK Healthcare LPN Program

  1. My friend is looking at attending an LPN school soon and she found out about CMK's LPN program. The cost of tuition is around $15,000 and the program is for 10 months.

    CMK also has an agreement with Saint Xavier University to accept CMK's classes for their LPN-BSN program.

    Does anyone have any more info on this school?

    Edit: Can a staff member please move the thread to the IL program discussion forum? Thank you.

    Thank you. The lady left me a voice mail saying the program cost $15,000 and you need to leave a $2,000 deposit before the class starts. You pay the remaining balance with 10 payments of $1,300. They don't offer any finalcial aid at this time.

    Ok - here is the listing for approved LPN programs in the state of IL and yes, CMK is listed:

    State of Illinois, Illinois Center for Nursing - Education Opportunities

    Here are the graduation rates for LPN programs in IL:

    And here are the pass rates for nursing programs in IL:

    http://nursing.illinois.gov/PDF/IlAp...es01292010.PDF

    Apparently, CMK is a new program in 2009.

    Personally, if you are going to spend $15,000, I would just get an RN. However, if the waiting times are lengthy then plan to do the LPN and go STRAIGHT into an RN program.

    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.
