Anyone heard about Louisiana College ABSN program?

  1. Hello everyone!

    I was hoping to find out some information about Louisiana College's ABSN program. If there are any recent graduates out there that could provide some insight to the program it would be much appreciated.

    How was the interview process?

    How was the pace of the program? Do you feel prepared as a RN?

    Does anyone know if you can specialize in postpartum care?

    Thank You!

    The interview process for ABSN students is usually a group process - a bit nerve wracking but easy enough to get through if you stay cool. The pace of the program is pretty intense - but you expect that in an accelerated program. Four semesters, one after the other. There are some short breaks at Christmas and summer etc but you have to stay focused for pretty much most of the time. I felt very prepared as an RN. Like most of my class I passed the HESI national standardized exam to prepare for NCLEX with a score over 1000 - I believe that that is a really good score for us all to have achieved. Most of us went on to pass NCLEX after taking only 75 questions. Staff in the hospital complimented me on being well prepared for my role as a RN, and told me to pass on their comments to my instructors. I do not know if you can specialize in post partum care - maybe in your final preceptorship experience? Hope this helps.

    Thank you for your thoughts! I did not know that we had a final preceptorship. Do you have any advice for the first semester of school?

    Hi everyone! I am planning on starting the LC ABSN Program this Fall 2015 and I'm looking for a roommate that will be in the nursing program. I plan to move to Pineville, LA around mid- August 2015. If you are interested email me at Good luck to you all!

    I have not posted here for a while but am upset about hearing that the Dean left LC in the summer along with most of the nursing faculty. I hope the excellent NCLEX pass rate does not suffer but with most of the excellent faculty who taught our class now gone i am not sure that things will ever be the same. I will keep praying for LC and the nursing program.
