I've recently finished my CNA classes with Med Ed in Chesterton IN. And now Im employed as a CNA. I want to quickly advance my credentials and become an LPN but I recently moved to Hammond IN and so far all I've came up with is a head ache. Finding my CNA class was no problem. Im from Illinois and you can just go to many different places and enroll into the program as long as you have the money. That's what I was looking for. But nothing. Also I tried to enroll in Ivy Tech Gary but apparently the program is a hot commodity. I really want to have my license by this time next year. Maybe i should just get it through Illinois and switch it over.
Please help I need to know where I can start a LPN program.

I live in NW Indiana as well. I went to the Ivy Tech in Gary and got my RN last year.
I don't think there is really a "fast track" way to LPN. You have to take the pre-req's, the TEAS and apply anywhere you go. I do know that places like Kaplan and Brown-Sawyer (I think that's what it's called) offer LPN programs, but their classes will not transfer to anywhere other school, so if you ever want to further your education you would have to re-take classes.
Best of luck to you.
