Did you go to a private LVN school or an ROP School?

  1. 0 I am trying to wait and go to the ROP school because it's so much less expensive and just seems like there is no reason to pay $20,000 when you can pay $2,000. However, it seems that the private schools are much easier to get into in that they start classes all the time.

    The ROP is only twice a year. I want to get started now as it's killing me to wait and then the process to get in to the ROP is long and you are not guaranteed to get in even after 10 weeks of Fundamentals. AHH!!!

    Any advice?? What did you choose and why? Classes also seem more flexible with your schedule in the private schools.

    Any info would be great.

    Thanks so much!!

    I am going to an ROP school. I was lucky to get in, every 16 months they select 40 candidates and 30 go on to fundamentals II. They said that many people drop fundamentalsI and the remaining are selected by grade point average. If you don't have time to wait, then private school is a good choice, and your right the schedule is much more flexible. Good Luck
