Is this average? - page 3

I had an appointment with an administrator of an LVN program in my area and found out the program will cost $25,000 including books, two scrub outfits etc. Is this normal? I'm fairly certain I will... Read More

    $25000 seems a bit much, even for CA. You can probably do better than that, I'm sure. I attended LPN school in PA, I owe $18,000, which included a entire year of expenses. The program was $11,000, including everything.

    Well, most people who would happily attend a school or anything else for that matter without getting the information they need are pretty stupid. Who would spend $25,000 without even knowing what they are paying for? I don't know if it's just me or what, but all of the posts I have posted you have posted back something either condescending or rude. And not to sound rude myself but I posted about my house forclosing to give insight as to what my credit looks like, not to get advice on selling it. My ex husband and I are both real estate agents, there's more to my situation than I've put on the internet as this is not the subject of converstion.
    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about you being condescending or rude, I know it's hard to get a feel for people's tone just reading what they have to say but I just had to put what I felt out there.
    Dear Ethnic Beauty,
    With your sensitivity in Commuter's simple response to your simple question, how do you think you're going to survive working as a Nurse. You will be the eyes and ears of the DR.'s and will be communicating with them for the most part, trust when I say you will be attacked by their superiority and super ego because they're education level is higher than you. What will you do then? How will you react to that? If you're pissing your pants about The Commuter's subtle answer, then I'm afraid you'll be crying your heart out when a Physician or future colleagues come off offending you. GOOD LUCKKKKKKKKKKKKK with that!

    However you may take this post of mine, I don't care......

    HI!
    I've been looking into private LVN programs myself in the LA area for the past 6 months. The ones that I have looked into have run between $19,000.00 and $24,000.00. Good Luck!

    WOW! Move out east for a year! I live in south central PA and went to the local vocational school, waited only a short time to get in (about 6 months as classes only started twice a year) and the total cost was somewhere between 8-9k. I was able to get a student loan that covered the majority of the cost and a pell grant that covered the rest and then some! Now I am working on my RN but I believe I got screwed there, :smackingf but thats another story! Good luck !

    I didn't see anything rude at all in what TheCommuter posted.
