LPN program without Prereqs and waiting list

  1. 0 Hello,

    I live in Brooklyn, but I'm relocating to North Carolina. However the only LPN program without a waiting list and prereqs is ECPI and it cost $20,000. I'm not tie down to move to North Carolina yet but is there any LPN programs out there without the waiting list and no prereqs. I'm just looking for one that only last a year.

    I could be wrong, but I think they will all have SOME pre-reqs: English, math and A&P at the very least.

    I completed a year-long LVN program without waiting lists or prerequisites, but the tuition was $20,000.

    What exactly is a LVN? If its worth it I'll go into the LVN program. Also with the LVN program, can you bridge to the RN program.

    LVN = stand for Licensed Vocational Nurse, yes you can bridged it for Nursing program which mostly school accept as long as your licensed from LVN is current or pass the Board.

    I am in the LPN program in connecticut...

    In CT there are two types of LPN Programs: State-run and private. State run programs have no prereqs, but you must pass a basic math and english test, then go thru an interview. That takes several months. There is no 'waiting list' per sae, but you have to pass the test and wait for the next class. This class costs about $5,000 total...

    The private classes have their own requirements, and cost $25,000...

    (Which one do you think I am enrolled in )

    Hi,
    I am in the second to last term of the ECPI LPN program in North Carolina. There are no prerequisites required, they offer them to you during school. It's an intense program, one year, M-F from eight to four thirty. The difference between LVN and LPN is the state you live in. Usually, LVN is in the western state like California. I chose to suck it up and pay the 20 grand because of the long wait times for RN school, and now with my LPN schooling I have already been excepted into RN school that I would have had to wait two more years to get into. A lot of the schools in my area, have transitional programs that forgive some prereqs if you have your LPN liscence. Good luck to you, can't wait to finish school, take the Nclex and start working to pay off the first in a series of student loans to come

    Hi, I am graduating this June from Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing for my LPN. Its 10 months long, M-F 7:30 to 3:30 (T and TH end at 1pm) More clinical time than NY requires and its connected to a great hospital RGH (Rochester General Hospital) and it only costs under $7,000. No prereq's other then the typical testing to get in. Then to graduate you must have completed Eng I and Psych. I moved from Orlando FL just to go to this Program. Its highly recommended! Hope this helps.

    I went to a school in West Virginia that does not have a waiting list. Each year you have to take a test simmilar to the sat and it goes on a point system. The higher the score in each subject area the higher points you get. Things like prior college and medical experiance are extra points but not required. The people with the top points go through a background check and drug test then are voted on be a committee. They ususally accept about 45 people yearly and each year is a totally new chance to get in. They dont have a wait list but some people do have to try for several years to get in depending on their test scores. Luckly I scored high enough and got in on the first try. The only prereqs are medical terminology and math for meds but those are done the month before class actually starts. They give you the books and you have to study indepently in the library for atleast 27 hours total and take tests in June then class starts in July. Then class is 11 information packed months (12 including the month of independant study)and the class progresses at a very rapid pace. You have to score 80% or above in each class to progress to the next level and there is 4 levels. Also you may miss no more than 40 hours throught out the program or you are immediatly dismissed. The school cost is about 4000.00 total and the cost of living in this area is very low compared to most other states.
