Hostos CUNY lpn program

  1. 0 Hello all I have read from another thread that the LPN program at Hostos is not accredited. What does this mean? I thought that most certificate programs would most likely be credited no? Because what would be the point of their program would you be able to get a job if it wasn't accredited?I don't know I'm just a little confused and if someone has done the LPN at hostos can you please give me some insight on how was your experience and/or if you had trouble finding a bridge program because of accreditation problems? eventually I want to do a bridge program and I would like to avoid any accreditation problems Plus I also would like to know what to look for accreditation wise in the programs and a rn program I would like to be a travel nurse thanks guys!

    Accreditation is simply not important for LPN programs. As long as the LPN program is approved to operate by the state board of nursing, your education will be fine. Approval and accreditation are two different things.

    The National League for Nursing (NLNAC) accredits LPN programs. To give you a sense of how rare accreditation is for LPN programs, there are no NLNAC-accredited programs in California, which is a state that has more than 200 LPN/LVN programs. There are less than five NLNAC-accredited programs in the second largest state of Texas.

    And yes, you can continue your education to become an RN after graduating from an unaccredited LPN program.

    I'd be careful of attending Hostos, they are the only unaccredited CUNY. I'm attending now and am transferring like many other students. Other Cuny/Suny schools want an accredited program degree and a license when entering their BSN programs.

    Glad I came across this post right now I will be doing their cna course next month but was considering going back afterwards for my lpn. I just moved back to NYC and am not very familiar w the schools around here and when I ask for people's opinions they never give me one. Sucks. Thanks for your opinion!

    Lehman College actually takes in students from hostos into their RN to BSN program. I would check on this matter first before making the decision to transfer swiftly.

    CUNY is the most affordable way to get your RN and the Dr. King preps you, you WILL pass the NCLEX.....Every classmate I had that wanted to go for a BSN has been able to get in to Lehman and several online programs...I prefer Western Governors University...to be honest, you are supposed to be a working RN, but I fudged the facts and nobody went to confirm...$8k later and 14 months, I have my BSN and am trying to find my first RN job!
