Any advice

  1. I am planning on starting an LVN program in Aug. and was wondering if anyone has any tips or advice for me.

    I am so nervous having to wait to know if I got in and if I dont I am going to continue taking classes that will transfer later on down the road and reapply to start in JAn.

    Make sure you choose the right school for your LVn Program. There are many schools out there that only care about money...& not much about their students. And also look for the NCLEX passing rate for the really matters bcus it shows how good they prepare their students for NCLEX....although u hav to put in a lot of effort yourself but I believe that good school matters. Good Luck

    I graduated from the Weatherford LVN program in 2011. It's an awesome program. They have excellent pass rates. I am married and have and 8 year old son who was 7 while I was in the program and I still finished second in the class. When I took my NCLEX it cut off at the minimum number of questions and I passed. WC prepares you well and you will also be taking a sort of practice NCLEX towards teh end to determine your percentage of passing the first time and what areas you need to work on. Lots of studying, I made flash cards constantly. Put as much into it as you want to get out of it and you will do fine. Good luck!!!
