    Well being that a few friends of mine graduated this past december 13th with there BSN in hand, I had to appeal the nursing committee decision and I have been out of nursing school for an entire semester just waiting to be able to continue at SELU. Well in the meantime I have found an articualation program from Louisiana Technical College in hammond that will allow Senior RN students from SELU to complete there LPN program in 9 weeks. I was wondering has anyone applied for this WIA program that a few friends of mine have applied for?? Its the Workforce Investment Act basically set up for technical education and they pay for supplies, tution and books and what not. Has anyone heard about this. I am just writing this blog on Christmas just to be thankful that with all the sweat and tears that have came with enduring nursing school at SLU, I have a second option to complete my LPN and continue to get my BSN from SLU in the next year. And also what is keeping me going to complete my nursing education is that I have a little boy coming this may! I found out last week and its just going to make me ten times harder to complete my LPN licenses and the BSN program. Thanks for reading this blog, its just a wishful thinking blog and comment if you'd like. God bless.

    Congratulation on the up coming birth of your new son. What a nice christmas gift. I am glad to hear you will be able to get a degree in nursing. I know it will be a long road but one worth traveling. As far as WIA I received funds for nursing school, you can go to your local unemployment office or like they say the employment office. what I understand the funds are for any nursing program. I am glad to hear from you and good luck with nursing school. If I can help with any just let me know.

    Thank you for the words of encouragement. Yeah I am totally excited and yet scared at the same moment of my little boy coming my way in May, but future fianace to be and I are totally excited. She is about 21 weeks now, and thank goodness I have some OB knowledge behind me to know what to expect possibly. But in all honesty, I have been trying to get in touch with the Head of Nursing LPN there in Hammond for the articulation program. I just know that with this email that was sent by one of our instructors, that they are atleast attempting to be encouraging to become a nurse, even though it'll be an LPN for a moment. But they have the WIA office there in Hammond, in which I will plan to drive there next week to fill out some forms and talk to the director with the LPN program. But I hope all is well for you! Have you taken your NCLEX??? If I have any questions about WIA I will be in contact with you. Thanks again.
    God Bless, Pete
