Lpn student aug 2013..

  1. 1
    I start an lpn course in roughly 4 months. I spent some time doubting myself on weather I'd even get in the course but I went for it. I'm excited but nervous on how it's going to go. I worked as cna for awhile, to me the only thing that helped me go to Work for the time I did was because i enjoyed the residents. I had good days n bad. I'm hoping that lpn fits me better, maybe more enjoyable and a better fit. Keeping my fingers crossed. I do want this. Advice?

    Hi! Congrats on your acceptance, I too just got accepted to my program, however we begin in July. I have talked to a few people that have taken the course and passed. I don't know about your program but mine during my interview the program manager straight up told me that working during the duration of the course would be a very bad idea. However I think once you get into the swing of things that working won't be as bad. As for the classes I was told by students to read a head a little each night because the course goes fast and if you didn't read ahead to cover that days materials you could easily get lost. I also was told that if math is not your forte that you should really brush up on it before you get to the sections with math and meds. Not sure I helped at all but good luck!

    Im set to start in August too at Atlantic Tech here in South FL, have to take my Tabe and Teas V tests, sheesh I didn't know the books were so expensive though, and I don't believe financial aid covers them. Anyone else attending ATI, Sheridan, or McFatter tech?

    I'm at Atlantic currently. In block 2! There's a whole thread on all 3 schools in the Florida section here under United States nursing.

    I am in an LPN program in WV, this actually my second one. I would recommend starting in on some A and P, med surg and pharmacology. ..it's so condensed it seems like there is no time at all in between test times. Good luck.
