    Thanks MsLoving&caring for responding and Ira i guess we will be meeting the same day thanks to Sandy lol... So after we do CPP then we have to do a trade (i chose Medical Assistant) before the Lpn program right the part I am confused about is do you automatically get into the LPN program or do you have to be selected and I know you have to TABE well too but other than that are there any requirements? Thanks again

    I know we keep asking questions but the admission people don't tell you anything lol

    Everythng is going great. I know Job Corps is not the topically school to go to for nursing but i like it. I think it will be a good fit for me.

    Congratulations on your acceptances! I have a few questions if you don't mind. I am seriously interested in the Keystone Job Corps. What is the enrollment process like? What sorts of paperwork do I need to provide, specifically income paperwork? I am interested in the LPN program, but I don't mind completing a CNA course first, which i have heard is required. Is this true of everyone? Are people ever accepted right into the LPN program? Also, do you know if the LPN program is properly accredited by the board of nursing? What is living on center like there? How many girls to a dorm room, how busy are you, what is there to do, etc? Thanks so much!!

    I'm about to go to Job Corps soon. I want to become a LPN but I read that I have to get my CNA degree before I do that, and I was just wondering since some of you guys are talking about LPN degrees did you guys get your CNA degrees first? And if you got your LPN without your CNA degree where did you go for your LPN degree and how long did it take you if you had a high school diploma.
